This was Covington's first ever production credit. He told The Boot
why he ended up manning the boards. "I called up Shooter one day and said, 'I'm open on this day, and you're open on this day, and the studio is open on this day ... The only problem is the producer isn't available.'" the American Idol
alumini recalled. "And in true Shooter fashion, he said, 'Do you really need someone to tell you what to do?' And I said, 'Good call, man! So come on in on that date and I'm gonna produce this thing.' He says, 'You got it, I'll see you then.'"
