  • WHERE I WAS LETTING IT COME THROUGH A BIT AND -- THIS WAS A

  • WHILE BACK, I WAS GOING OUT AND DOING ALL SORT OF DIFFERENT

  • PEOPLE.

  • GETTING ON THE PLANE WITH A GUITAR CAN BE A HASSLE AS MANY

  • PEOPLE KNOW.

  • SO THEY WERE VERY KIND AND LENT ME A GUITAR A COUPLE OF TIMES.

  • I SAID, I WONDER, YOU SELL G GIBSONS, CAN I BUY IT FROM YOU.

  • THEY SAID THERE ARE ONLY TWO, THEY WERE COMMISSIONED BY A FILM

  • COMPANY.

  • THEY CAME BACK TO ME AND SAID, OKAY, WE CAN SELL IT TO YOU, THE

  • FILM COMPANY WANTED THE OTHER ONE, BUT YOU CAN HAVE THIS, HERE

  • YOU GO.

  • I SAID, OH.

  • A COUPLE OF YEARS LATER, THE MOVIE CAME OUT, AND IT WAS "A

  • STAR IS BORN" STARRING BRADLEY COOPER AND THIS GUITAR.

  • >> James: OH, WOW!

  • HAVE YOU PLAYED "SHALLOW" ON IT YET?

  • MOMENT.

  • LUCY, WHICH I KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN TOGETHER FOR A LONG TIME.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> James: HAS SHE HEARD IT YET?

  • WHAT DOES SHE THINK OF IT?

  • >> LUCY IS, OF COURSE, MY KIND OF GREATEST OF THE CRITIC AND

  • SHE'S THE MOST HONEST IN THE BEST WAYS THAT I ABSOLUTELY

  • NEED.

  • THE PEOPLE OUT THERE THEY MIGHT MEAN IT AND IT'S SO GREAT TO

  • HAVE LUCY.

  • SHE GOES THROUGH THE PROCESS OF ME WRITING THE SONGS AND

  • LISTENING TO THE MUSIC COME THROUGH AND SHE GOES THROUGH IT

  • WITH ME.

  • I CAN GO TO HER AND SAY IS THIS WHAT I THINK IT IS?

  • THIS FIRST SINGLE, "CHEW ON MY HEART," SHE LOVED IT.

  • IT FIRST TIME, IT MEANS THE WORLD.

  • >> James: WE'VE GOT A PERFORMANCE COMING UP SHORTLY,

  • WHICH I HAVE TO THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR THE

  • EXTREME EFFORT THAT MUST HAVE GONE IN TO THIS PERFORMANCE.

  • IT MADE ME FEEL INCREDIBLY NOSTALGIC AND HOME SICK.

  • HOW DID YOU PULL OFF THIS PERFORMANCE?

  • >> WITH A LOT OF COURAGE AND TRUTH.

  • THE IDEA CAME UP ABOUT A WEEK BEFORE, YOU KNOW, ABOUT A WEEK

  • BEFORE WE STARRED TO PUT IT TOGETHER, LIKE, AND MAKE IT A

  • REAL THING, AND I JUST ROLLED WITH IT.

  • I WAS, LIKE, THIS IS GREAT, LOPEFULLY IT'S GREAT.

  • I THOUGHT, GIVE JAMES A LOOK OF LONDON AND SOMETHING TO REMEMBER

  • AND ENJOY.

  • AND ONLY WHEN I GOT OUT OF THE CAR WHEN WE ARRIVED AT THE B.I.

  • AND WALKED OVER TO IT, AND I WAS LOOKING UP, AND I REMEMBERED I

  • WAS TERRIFIED OF HEIGHTS.

  • >> James: WELL YOU ARE PERFORMING AT QUITE A HEIGHT AND

  • IT IS A BEAUTIFUL PERFORMANCE AND SONG AND YOU'RE GOING TO GET
