Choosing Twain’s song to cover was an easy decision, as the BMLG Records singer has always looked up to Twain, and even goes as far as calling her one of the biggest inspirations behind her music.
“People always have asked me, like, what am I going to expect from these songs, and when I first moved to Nashville, I tried to come up with something that would describe me, and I came up with the term, ‘Dreamy Country.’ I had never heard it before, but I felt like it fit because I was always inspired by Stevie Nicks and Nora Jones from a very young age, plus all old-school country music like Shania Twain and The Chicks,” Booth recently shared in an exclusive interview with Country Now.
Booth even references Twain’s iconic track in her brand new single, “Shuffle,” with the line, “I’ll always love you and you’re still the one to….”
When writing the song, the singer had a very specific vision for how she wanted it to turn out.
“I also wanted it to pay homage to so many great female artists that came before me,” Booth went on to explain.
“You’re Still The One” was written by Twain and Robert John “Mutt” Lange. The award-winning single appears on Twain’s third album, Come On Over, and was the singer’s most successful crossover song of her career. The track came as a result of criticism of Twain and Lange’s relationship, as they were married at the time.
“Although the song has country elements of warm, acoustic strumming, the verses are dominated by piano, while a smoldering organ, my last favorite instrument, stands out as the most prominent sound on the choruses,” Twain wrote in her autobiography, “From This Moment On.”
