It takes a brave soul to write these songs, much less sing them in public. No wonder she chose to take a few more risks on The Duel. "It's what I have to say, it's what WE have to say," she says. "Making music is emotional. I don't want it to be any other way."
Moorer is also a very smart woman and the songs she writes and sings aren't simply vast rivers of untamed emotion. "All the songs on this album could've been called 'The Duel'," she says. "They're all about the fight, not the outcome. The outcome is always about the winners - but during the fight, the losers still think they have a chance."
