"..."Dream Baby," "Bubbles in My Beer," "You Don't Know Me" if Cindy Walker hadn't written another song, these three would be enough to hang her Stetson on. She wrote hundreds more, however, and it's hard to think of a more influential country & western songwriter, or one who's more quintessentially Texan..."
"...AC: The Little Willies covered "You Don't Know Me" by Cindy Walker, which Willie Nelson also covered on his Cindy Walker album. What other songwriters are in danger of being forgotten — a songwriter that's ripe for rediscovery...."

"...Nelson could have done better than donating a golf putter, an old headband, and assorted other items to the display. On the other hand, the exhibit on Cindy Walker gives some insight into the songwriter from Mexia who wrote Roy Orbison's hit "Dream Baby" and many other popular songs...."
"...7) Willie Nelson, You Don't Know Me: The Songs of Cindy Walker (Lost Highway)..."
"..."Ft. Worth, Texas" is one of the few uptempo songs on the disc (written by Cindy Walker), a light little ditty about Cowtown's charms..."
"...Walser and his wife sat offstage and watched the proceedings with twinkling eyes as friends like Charlie Louvin dropped by to wish them well. A particularly poignant moment came when Walser was presented with a huge bouquet of flowers from legendary songwriter Cindy Walker to honor the occasion..."
"...We sat at the end of the stage pew, and they set up folding chairs next to us for Walser and his wife, Pat. As the show went on, a steady stream of well-wishers stopped to shake Walser's hand, and at one point, he was informed that Cindy Walker, the first lady of Texas country music songwriters, had sent him an enormous bouquet of flowers with her congratulations..."
"...Mayor Will Wynn made his runway debut as a pajama model. Willie Nelson had a Brokeback Mountain moment with "Cowboys Are Frequently, Secretly (Fond of Each Other)." Jerry Jeff Walker sued a record label for releasing covers of his songs..."
"...BL: I have a lot of wonderful women I want to play music with here in Austin. Too many to name, so I’ll have to go with people I never got to meet: Bessie Smith to sing, Maybelle Carter to play guitar, and Cindy Walker to write the songs..."
"...Standards like "Don't Fence Me In" and Hank Williams' "Cold, Cold Heart" are executed with the same care and precision of his own work, Kremer's velvety tenor breathing new life into cherished songs and animating a nostalgic view of courtship. Austin Americana trio the Carper Family joins Kremer throughout the album, adding fiddle whines, harmonies, and vocal banter to Cindy Walker's "Take Me in Your Arms and Hold Me." Even so, originals "After This One" and "Someone Else's Girl" mimic Kremer's muses in both content and form, evoking slow winds on sawdust dance floors...."
"...This is also the first Wheel album to feature new replacements: pianist/vocalist Emily Gimble (her grandfather Johnny being a Texas Playboy) and fiddler/vocalist Katie Shore. New blood thus mixes with old style on tunes from Wills' songbook ("Faded Love," "Time Changes Everything") as well as those composed by legendary Texas writer Cindy Walker ("Bubbles in My Beer")..."
"...Stepping forward into his own spotlight with only his second solo album following 2005's Texas Fiddle Man, the Grammy-winning, Texas Western Swing Hall of Famer assembled an expected all-star ensemble, including former George Strait guitarist Rick McRae and Johnny Cox on steel. The surprise of That's My Home isn't the superb but refreshed traditional Western swing of Cindy Walker opener "I Hear You Talkin'." Or, for that matter, the title track's drowsy dance-floor spinner..."
"...“I was really into the Texas progressive music scene. It seemed like all the songwriters I admired were from Texas: Kristofferson, Willie, Billy Joe, Townes, Cindy Walker, Rodney Crowell, Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, Waylon, Buddy Holly......."
