About singing "Home," the Callaway sisters contributed this statement to the liner notes: "You know a songwriter has done something special when after you sing their song, some of the finest singers around are moved to tears - like Jane Monheit and Lea Salonga. Singing Scott's tender song 'Home' together was a transcendent moment for us as we strove to find new meaning in the words that two sisters could share."

All songs on "Live" were arranged and orchestrated by Jesse Vargas. Background vocals were arranged by Michael McElory, with the exception of the song "I've Already Won," which was arranged by Michael Orland ("American Idol") and Antonio Sol.
