was helmed by James Stroud. The legendary Country producer told Artist Direct
about Lewis's recording of this song: "He sang about Massachusetts, but to me, he's singing about Texas and Louisiana where I grew up. The sentiment is the same. It's that emotional connection with where you grew up, what you're all about, and where you came from. When I listen to 'Massachusetts,' that melody is haunting. The way he sets up that chorus takes you where he came from, but it also takes me where I came from. If I could sing like that, I would say the very same thing, except where I grew up. Everybody who hears it can relate because they all come from somewhere that gives them the same sentiment he has, sings, and writes about."
