Jenny Casey is originally from Oklahoma. These 12 songs tell more or less her own life story, her experiences as a mother of 4 children, work and study at the same time. At the age of 31, inspired by this life, she began to write her first songs. The family moved to Nashville, she worked as a teacher and still found time in the evening to go on stage in one of the local venues to play. And there she found the right audience. Her childhood dream had come true.

 

These tracks are sometimes a bit shrill, definitely very rocky, good for the line dancers, but there are also sentimental pieces, like track 3 “Flour Sack Dress”, in which she tells about her grandmother’s stories. Or track 9 “My Boy”, about changing schools and the feelings when children leave the house. She wrote the last title for her own 40th birthday party and is proud of the fact that she managed children and family first and only afterwards her career. This is also expressed in track 6 with “Loretta”.

 

This CD presents an interesting life story with well-written songs. All tracks are written by her, except for tracks 4, 5, and 8, where she had co-writer Steve Goodie with her and on track 6, she worked with Jerry Salley.
