What makes her so unique as a songwriter? She have the uncanny ability to write about anything, along with the ability to come up with brilliant hook lines. Her sense of humor, never falls short, along with her serious side, her words paint pictures while you listen to her songs. "Mamma Can Drive That Big Truck Too" was written from a hook line Carmella had an idea for, Carmella and a former co-writer who was an Over the road truck driver, took the hook line and they both based the song on the co-writers life as a driver but in a fun upbeat way. Carmella also has experience at making unique melodies so she just does her thing and Nelson takes it to a whole new level. Two things you can count on from Carmella is that when she writes a ballad or a song close to her heart...you will feel the emotion in the song, if it's one of her upbeat honky tonk songs..you will be tapping your feet without even knowing you are doing it.
