Lost In The Crowd

"Since Sherrie Austin's debut with her 1997 album "Words" she has just come up shy of breaking out big in a competitive Nashville market. While experiencing mild success with both "Love in the Real World" and "Followin' a Feelin' " (her second and third studio albums respectively) Austin never found a large following despite an abundance of talent.
Now with Austin's forth album "Streets of Heaven" she continues to prove that she belongs among her elite female counterparts with her sassy vocals and brilliant songwriting skills. The album is consistent throughout. Some of the album highlights are the title track and the catchy songs "Somebody's Somebody" and "Driving into the Sun". She also effortlessly weaves her way through touching ballads including "Fools like Us" and "Ride'em Cowgirl" which tells the story of a rodeo girl who leads a lonely and nomadic lifestyle. I should also add that there is a hidden track that plays just after "Like a Cat" entitled "Heart On Ice" Austin's love of country music is evident and she is a gift to the genre, one whom often is overlooked and underrated. If you're looking a solid country album to feature in your collection I highly recommend "Streets of Heaven". Also check out some of her earlier albums."

"I just received this CD as a Christmas gift (per my request) and I must say that it is excellent. Sherrie's lyrics are very clever and all of the melodies are gorgeous. A lot of the songs make you long for a summer day so you can roll the windows down and crank it loud, but it's December here in Louisville so not yet! It's hard to pick favorites, but "Driving Into the Sun" definitely stands out. Even though it's an up-tempo number, its really a tragic tale of love lost and the yearning for days of innocence. You can almost visualize the invincible young couple blinded by the bright sun! "Ride 'Em Cowgirl" is also amazing. Again, the lyrics and melody are beautiful and Sherrie's vocal delivery is spectacular. I also find myself listening to "This Town Is That Small" repeatedly. And need I even mention "Streets of Heaven" which is, of course, the reason I wanted this CD in the first place? The whole CD is wonderful. I would love to see it get some serious airplay because both Sherrie and the music deserve it."
