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.
