Lee DeWyze Makes American Idol History (Top Story)
"To see my name listed in the credits on each song was really important to me because I'm a songwriter," DeWyze says. "I also loved working with such talented writers. They all brought so much to the table and helped me flesh out my sound… I want people to relate to these songs," DeWyze explains.
"I love stories in songs and always try to write from an honest place. It's about capturing emotion, so that when you listen, it takes you back to that place. My best memories are all connected to music and I want to create those moments for other people." - more on this story
