Loretta Lynn and Elvis Costello Release Duet 'Everything It Takes'
"I wrote 'Everything It Takes' real fast," Lynn told Rolling Stone. "I probably wrote it in 30 minutes. Sometimes I can write a song real fast, and sometimes it'll take me two, three days. And I get so aggravated that I'll probably lay it down and go back to it later. But that song came easy. I'll come up with the title first and, when I come up with the title, I always know I got a good title."
Costello and Lynn first met nearly five years ago when they were writing together. "We sat down in the studio to write a song," Lynn recalled. "I had a piece of paper and a pencil, and he had a computer. So we looked at one another like, 'What's going to come out of this?' He was laughing about it, but I didn't think it was funny because that's the way I write all my songs. When I write a song, I don't want to be on a computer." Check it out here.
