The men who haunt songs like "Better Off Broken," "Say Goodbye," and "Going, Going, Gone" on Ohioan Tammy Cochran's powerful and resolutely country debut album tend to be unfaithful, irresolute whiners and losers. The good news is that again and again Cochran finds thrilling musical inspiration and exhilarating self-empowerment in watching this parade of fools fade to nothingness in her emotional rear-view mirror. Whether on bittersweet fiddle- and steel-adorned ballads like "What I Learned from Loving You," triumphant celebrations of self-discovery like the sassy "So What," or a heartfelt personal memoir like "Angels in Waiting," Cochran consistently displays the wonderfully countrified poise and vocal artistry of a young 21st-century Tammy Wynette. --Bob Allen

"When I hear that Tammy dedicated this song to 2 little boys that had passed away due to cystic fibrosis, I just had to listen to it. I must confess that I'm not much of a country fan, but this song has a place in my life now. I had never heard of this illness, up until my (now) 2 year old niece, Jasmine, was born with this affliction, and she holds my heart in her hands. When Tammy sings the lyrics, "they always knew they'd never grow old...", it's because the life span for those who are born with this, isn't as long as it should be. Some live such a short life, they barely have time to make a few memories to take with them. Lucky ones get past the age of 10, mabey 20, but not many enjoy life past 35 years of age. They have yet to find a cure for it. Tears come to my eyes now everytime that I listen to those words, and I long to give my life for my niece's. Though she's here with us now, it's a horrible feeling I get everytime I hold her, like she's already been taken from me. Thank you Tammy, for bringing this disease out in the open for so many, and thank you for giving me a song to sing to my niece, with all my heart..."
Great writing + powerful voice = stellar debut

"I bought Tammy Cochran's first CD after hearing her heart-tugging single "Angels in Waiting". The song was written about her two brothers who were taken by Cystic Fibrosis. She co-wrote the song and wears her emotions on her sleeve. It is inspiring - my eyes tear up every time I hear it on the radio.
The rest of the CD does not disappoint, it is just as powerful. Big name writers abound - Roxie Dean and Jamie O'Neal ("So What"); Sherrie Austin ("Going, Going Gone") and Lisa Brokop ("Better Off Broken") - and Tammy also co-wrote 2 of the 10 songs. Her voice is BIG without being overpowering on "If You Can", a steel-guitar heavy song about making a tough choice. "So What" is about leaving 'Mr. Wrong' behind, and being better for it. "What I Learned From Loving You" is a ballad with a bit of a blues-vibe to it. "When Love Was Enough" is about when you are with the one you love and material things and money don't matter. My favorite songs - "Better Off Broken" and "I Cry" - are both upbeat songs about getting over someone, little by little.I am shocked Tammy Cochran is not more popular already, but I think her star is definitely on the rise! Faith and Shania should try to be more like her"
