The CD contains 9 original songs from some of the top publishing companies in Nashville, and 1 remake of a Melissa Etheridge song. It was recorded at Curb Music Studios, where Tim McGraw, JoDee Messina, Wynonna, and LeAnn Rimes record. The producer was Gilles Godard, a writer/producer at Curb. Gilles has produced sessions for Terri Clark, Lila McCann, Roy Orbison, Crystal Gayle, and Buddy Jewell. Craig White engineered the Curb segment. He has engineered for Tim McGraw, LeAnn Rimes and Chris Cagle. Bob McGilpin engineered the B. McMusic vocal segment.

The musicians that recorded the project were, Jeff King as session leader and lead guitar, Jerry McPherson on guitar/slide guitar, B.
