How Inside Edition's Lisa Guerrero Became a Bonafide Country Music Star

Playing Lisa Guerrero Writes Country Music When Not ‘Chasing Bad Guys’

Inside Edition Chief Investigative Correspondent Lisa Guerrero spends her days chasing bad guys, but in between it all, she found time to write a country music song. 

It all started 10 years ago when she was at a charity event and somebody bet her $20 she couldn't write a country music song in 24 hours. Never one to turn down a bet, Guerrero set to work. 

The song, "Everybody Loves a Comeback," pays tribute to men and women in the military and the loved ones they hope to come back to. 

She won the $20 bet and promptly forgot about the song. 

But a decade later, it somehow ended up in the hands of Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Keith Burns in Nashville, who loved it. 

"The idea she came up absolutely pulls at the heartstrings," Burns told Inside Edition. "I thought, 'Boy, this is a big idea.'"

They came together to record the song, fine-tuning the lyrics. Then, they met with James Stroud, a legendary country music producer with 150 No. 1 hit songs to his credit. He helped put the lyrics to a melody. 

Guerrero even recorded some of the vocals, together with country sister duo Presley & Taylor. She became emotional as she heard her words set to music for the first time. 

But the real test came with a live performance. As always, Guerrero was up to the task. Check out the video above to hear more about the song and see Guerrero on stage in Nashville

"Everybody Loves a Comeback" is available to download Friday, and Guerrero said proceeds will benefit a journalism scholarship fund through the Investigative Reporters and Editors association and Folds of Honor, a charity that supports the families of fallen soldiers. Guerrero and Burns are also planning to take their song on a USO tour this holiday season.

You can get it on iTunesApple MusicAmazonSpotify and Google. Learn more about how the song was made on Guerrero's YouTube channel.
