Ten years ago in one of our first 20 Questions features, Randy Rogers talked about the stories behind some of his songs. The tale of “Like It Used To Be” sums up how many of us were feeling in the days after 9/11.
-“Like It Used to Be” – I wrote it on my buddies couch in Ft. Worth. I used to stay there for days after we played a gig in Ft. Worth. He never complained. I really didn’t have anywhere else to go. The girl I was dating lived in Dallas and so it was closer to her than San Marcos. I wrote it during those crazy few months after 9/11 when you didn’t know what was going to happen next. I just wanted to go out and forget about the world around us.
