Not the best CD out there...but some strong tracks

Carolyn is a favorite of mine. Partly because I am a country music fan and female therefore I am constantly searching for and supporting "the next big country female vocal" but also because she has been writing hits for the big names for years.

This CD of hers (released in 2006) opened quite a few doors for her. It featured "Complicated" which not only topped country charts but also crossed over to the pop scene for a few months, and it also feared the title track-- A Room With A View...which is a favorite of mine, simple because I am a sap and its "sappiness" in its purest form. Here is a sample of the lyrics:

You've got a room with a view
A window to the world
You always had your sights set high
And now that you're gone
Your memory lives on
And I see you smiling in my mind
With angels as visitors dropping by
Your room with a view

With angels as visitors dropping by
Your room with a view


Anyway...you get the point. The CD itself isnt her best work, I hear her new CD which will be out in a few months is supposed to be her "reinvent herself" debut...but nonetheless this was a bad try for Carlyn Dawn Johnson...atleast she is singing her own beautiful words. Who knew she had such an amazing voice to match those lyrics...

I thought this was a pretty good CD. Actually -- I don't remember the specifics of it all -- but I contacted her thru the music company somehow (I think it was a web contest), and she sent me an autographed insert of the CD packaging (not the CD itself). Unfortunately, Carolyn Dawn didn't quite have 'staying power' in the US, though I've seen she still releases CDs in her native Canada.
