Gone Away From Me

  • Lyrics
  • Jackson Browne adds his vocals to his track. Holly Williams explained to Billboard magazine that it was producer Charlie Peacock who recruited the singer-songwriter. "Charlie asked me who my dream artist was, and I said Jackson Browne or Tom Waits," she explained. "He went to Jackson first, and he doesn't know me from Adam. His people wrote back, 'He thinks she's a great songwriter. Come to L.A on Tuesday.' That was such a big thing for me, him saying that. He was so great to work with. I'm so honored to have him on the record."
