When I received the platinum record for 'Coyote Ugly,' I sent it to James because if it wasn't for him, none of this would have happened, ... So I gave him my first one and said, 'Hey, this was for you and I and what we did.' It was just wonderful. It's exciting to see your names as the credits roll by because you're from El Paso and you never think you're going to accomplish so much. I lived in New York for years, and I still had that mentality.
