Vol. 31 —Baby, I’m The One

—-Karen Brooks and Randy Sharp have written some of Nashville’s top songs, and as an artist, Brooks enjoyed some success in the mid 1980s with her husky and identifiable voice – like “New Way Out” and the number one duet “Faking Love” with T.G. Sheppard. For my money, she’s one of the most underrated vocalists to come out of this town.


This single, released in the summer of 1992, is notable for something that takes place near the end of the track. You hear Brooks go into a mini-rap as the song winds down. Even twenty years ago, people were doing it. Kind of makes Brooks & Sharp a pioneer, doesn’t it?
