Josh Kelley went on to become a popular Country artist and married the actress Katherine Keigl, but "Amazing" dates back to his days at The University of Mississippi, where he went on a golf scholarship. In our interview with Josh Kelley
, he told us: "We used to throw these little block parties, and I'd met this girl. And she was just really cool, really spunky. I remember that night, middle of the night, she was like, 'let's travel to Tunica and go to the casino.' It's like 2 in the morning.
And the next day I had some free recording time at a studio to record this song. But I hadn't completely finished it yet. And so from her little spunky attitude, I actually got some ideas for the second verse on the way to the studio that next day. And the reason I even got that studio time is because I had basically traded a guitar amplifier, because I had no money in college. I just traded this guitar to this guy and he gave me six hours of time. I was young then, I didn't know exactly what I wanted to sing about, but I knew that I was chasing girls. I mean, now looking at it in hindsight, the lyrics don't even make that much sense. (laughing) Now I'm a much better writer than I was when I was 21. Or maybe I was actually 20 then. I think I was 20. And I've just become a much better writer."
