Dream Lady
Cindy Walker, the queen of Western Swing, reflects on a lifetime of songwriting
Music Story  February 20, 2004, by Jerry Renshaw
"..."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..."

Don Walser, Grand Ole Opry, Nashville, Tennessee, October 30
Music Review  November 5, 1999, by Jim Caligiuri
"...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..."

Country Chorus
Music Story  September 29, 2006, by Jim Caligiuri
"...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..."

Brian Kremer
Music Review  August 20, 2015, by Abby Johnston
"...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...."

Asleep at the Wheel
Music Review  March 12, 2015, by Jim Caligiuri
"...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")..."

Jason Roberts
Music Review  August 14, 2014, by Doug Freeman
"...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..."
