Recently the country powerhouse sat down with Cody Alan to reveal why she decided to add her raspy-bluesy vocals on a cover of Billie's pop-smash "Everything I Wanted."
"My bonus-son made a suggestion. He was like, "Ok, we had been doing online concerts. Fans, they have been making requests. We did a Valentine's Day show, and he said, "I think you should do a cover." I learned it because it was his suggestion."
Wynonna fell in love with Billie's song during quarantine and says she started "Love Notes" as a way to tap up-and-coming stars and offer comfort for anything that they may be going through.
"I see the part where I felt like a misfit, and I felt like I didn't fit in, to the point where I was made fun of a lot. Of course, I say, "Who is laughing now? Ha. Ha. Ha," but back then, I was incredibly lonesome."
"In my economy, I was so different people thought something was wrong with me, almost like, "What's the matter?" and I just felt lonely. And I had music, thank God," says the country powerhouse.
"I am starting a thing called "Love Notes" to say, "Billie, I see you. I hear you," says Wynonna. "Just know I'm out here if you need anything."
