30 Seconds With Miss Leslie

Rocks Off sat down with Miss Leslie to see what we could learn about Houston's reigning queen of country in 30 seconds.

Rocks Off: What is the worst song in the world?

Miss Leslie: So many songs to choose from, but I'd have to say "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" because I like Jamey Johnson, and he should know better... but considering what his royalty checks have been, maybe he did.

RO: What is the best lyric in the world?

ML: So many songs to choose from again, but I'll go with the lyrics to "He Stopped Loving Her Today," written by Bobby Braddock and Curly Putnam that starts off with "He said, 'I'll love you till I die'..." It captures you and doesn't let go from start to finish.

There's a Web site dedicated to the entire song. Interesting note from the Web site, Jones said that "Nobody will buy that morbid S.O.B." So, be careful how you judge your writing.
