Only Me

Songfacts®:

  • Rhonda Vincent sought out Willie Nelson to play on this song because she thought it was reminiscent of his classic "On the Road Again," and knew it would be a special treat to have Nelson perform on a Bluegrass number. She told The Boot: "And the fact that he agreed to play guitar — when he plays, I would say from the first two notes, you know that it's Willie Nelson. It's just so unique. And I'm told... he played guitar riffs from 'On the Road Again,' and he doesn't do that very often, or maybe even has never done that before, and I was so thrilled that he shared that on this particular song."
  • Vincent took a back seat when it came to songwriting for the Only Me album. "I have to be inspired to write," she said in our interview. "I'm not someone who says, Okay, let's sit down today and write a song. It's usually not fruitful for me." The two-disc album is a blend of traditional Country and her signature Bluegrass sound.
