'Timeless' Lainey Wilson's 'I Would If I Could' Bring It to Light

The most recent performer to bring a song back to life after it was forgotten is Lainey Wilson.

Apple Music published a version of the CMA Entertainer of the Year's "I Would If I Could" on Thursday as the fifth installment of its Lost and Found series,.

Which features previously unheard songs penned by some of Nashville's top composers and re-recorded by today's biggest singers.

Original lyrics for "I Would If I Could" were penned in 1996 by the celebrated composers Dean Dillon and Skip Ewing. 

Wilson shared her reasoning for selecting that song in an upcoming interview with Kelleigh Bannen on Today's Country Radio.

"The song is classic from the very first phrase that you hear. It also has the vibe of a song that ought to be a song already.

The "Watermelon Moonshine" vocalist called them "two of the most amazing songwriters that have ever existed."

"I have a lot of respect for them. And I wanted to record this song, which was created a long time ago yet has stood the test of time and is timeless.
