“I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry”"...Reynolds discovers yet another depth to Williams’ classic..."
There are songs that will surely live forever. Their words and music supply such staggering feelings that it is inconceivable to live without them. Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” is surely one of those songs. In fact, it might just be the very best of them all. When Williams first sang it, it felt like the world was going to end, and the sooner the better. That kind of loneliness should befall no one. Now Austin-based singer Jenny Reynolds discovers yet another depth to Williams’ classic, one that offers just enough hope inside the words to find forgiveness for such forlorness. Instead, an inner beauty in the falling stars and purple sky lends a hand to offer hope and the idea of another chance at love. Maybe. What is so transformative by this version among the hundreds of others is that Jenny Reynolds sings it like it’s never been sung before, almost like she wrote it. And her entire new album ANY KIND OF ANGEL is one not to miss. More next month.
"A wonderful album..."— Ear To The Ground
"By blending traditional Americana with Latin, folk, and smokey Southern blues, Jenny Reynolds has songwriting chops for days..."— The Austinot Weekend Concert Picks
