Product Description

Rebecca Lynn Howard ~ Rebecca Lynn Howard

Amazon.com

Rebecca Lynn Howard's bio describes the 20-year-old Kentuckian as working at her career since age 10. That may seem like hype in a time when karaoke singers land Nashville record deals, but there's some substance here. Reba, Lila McCann, John Michael Montgomery, and Howard's fellow Kentuckian Patty Loveless have already covered her original songs, and her voice possesses the searing, primal soulfulness of Loveless or even a Dolly Parton. She fully reveals her gifts on the sweetly vulnerable "You're Not a Memory Yet" and two snappy, spare honky-tonkers: "Melancholy Blue" (penned by Tom Douglas and Harlan Howard) and "Was It As Hard to Be Together." Of course, producer Mark Wright goes and shoehorns her into predictable, radio-friendly, assembly-line Nashville formulas much of the time, epitomized by the gimmicky "Heartsounds" and "Believe It or Not," a numbingly dull, Whitney Houston/Celine Dion-inspired power ballad. Howard has real potential, if she could avoid conforming to Music Row's same old same old. --Rich Kienzle

She's definately got talent and I have a strong suspicion she is one of those performers who is far better in person than on CD. Some of the songs would be splendid if they only employed half as many instruments; I find her voice to be completely drowned out at times. Half of the songs are original and quite good, the rest are bland radio fodder. While I consider this CD to be a "keeper," I'm hoping that as she matures in age, experience, and musical direction that she will choose a simpler, narrative style that highlights her lovely voice and upholds the story telling tradition of great country music.

One word: PHENOMINAL! This girl can sing. At my first listen I wasn't quite hooked but thats because I only listened to the interesting sounding songs. Then I listened to it all this CD is my life wrapped up into 12 songs! Her vocals in I Don't Paint Myself Into Corners blew me AWAY. Her sassiness, her charm, her songwriting just hooked me in. Tennesee In My Windshield is my song word for word! And Jesus, Daddy & You is a song for every daddy's little girl out there! She's a wonderful artist and she truly lives up to MCA's label and its reputation of "keeping it country" she's in good company with Chely,Lee Ann & Trisha! She's gonig places y'all just watch her fly!

Kudos to Rebecca Lynn Howard. This has to be one of the best debut albums I have ever heard. I first saw her perform at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville in the summer of 1999. She sang "I Don't Paint Myself into Corners" and it blew me away even more than the recorded version did. She can flat out sing, write and perform.
I have never seen/heard a performer who got into the music the way she does. Just by singing the single word "grave" in "Meloncholy Blue", you can fully sense the pain the person in the story feels as a result of having to face the fact that their loved one has died. So powerful!
I cannot wait for another CD by Rebecca Lynn Howard. This CD definitely left me wanting more.

Those who say this is typical country pop are wrong. The first song, "Heartsounds," is crisp and has an Appalachian flavor, as do many others. "I Don't Paint Myself Into Corners" is kind of Patty Loveless-like in sound, and it develops a typical country theme into something special. "You're Real" has a gentle beauty to it. Check out the horns on it, too. Again, not really slick like most of the country pop out there. I'm not bashing country pop, but I get a more traditional feel here that I like. "Out Here In The Water" is a definite standout - sung with conviction and has a great honky tonk/blues arrangement. "Melancholy Blue" will tug at your heart, with its tale of how money can not help her after the loss of her love. Really sad and without hope, but don't worry. Cute songs like "When My Dreams Come True" and "Tennessee In My Windshield" offer plenty of cheer. Her voice is often Lee Ann Womack-like, so if you like her albums, you should really like this as well.

I heard Rebecca Lynn Howard interviewed on the radio not long ago, where she sang a song à capella and I was blown away! This was followed by a playing of her recording "Out Here in the Water," and I was blown away again. Her voice contains shades of Patty Loveless, Emmylou Harris, even early Dolly Parton to a certain extent, but she definitely has her own timbre and delivery - and, from the interview, it also appears she can yodel as well as Margo Smith if she wants to. I rushed to buy this debut CD and was sorely disappointed in most of the tracks. Sheer pop-country fluff at its most banal, for the most part. A few nice arrangements, but nothing that'll stay with you. And more's the pity. Such a voice deserves a much better showcase. Let's hope her subsequent offerings do justice to her immense talent.

This singer has it all, bold, sassy, flirty, and fun. She can growl out a saucy tune or pitch a sweet, clear sounding melody that makes you smile, remebering sweeter, more innocent times. Ever since viewing her video presentation of Out Here In The Water, I've been frantically searching for this release, knowing if she could make me smile with that tune, there had to be more equally as good. It was worth the wait.

Bottom-Line: It is shame that Rebecca Lynn Howard the album, was not a hit on the charts, because it certainly deserves to be listened to by a wider audience.

There was a time in my young life when I despised Country music; it grated on my ears like a howling dog. But time and maturation taught me to appreciate this quintessential form of American music. Mere interest gave birth to prolonged watching of Country Music videos on Great American Country (GAC), which led me to Rebecca Lynn Howard. After seeing her video for Forgive, a release from her second album, I bought the CD (see my review), liked it and subsequently bought her first self-titled release, Rebecca Lynn Howard.

Born in Salversville, KY in 1979, Rebecca Lynn Howard's breakthrough occurred in 1997 when she recorded "Softly and Tenderly" for the soundtrack of the Robert Duvall movie, The Apostle; this beautiful rendition would later end up on her sophomore CD, the aforementioned Forgive. But Howard traversed a rocky road before she realized her self-proclaimed dream of releasing an album; no less then two record labels closed down after signing her and before they released her CD.

Ultimately Howard debuted on the MCA Nashville label in 1999, and in early 2000 released her self titled CD, Rebecca Lynn Howard. A prolific and accomplished songwriter, the majority of tracks on this CD were co-written by Howard including one ("I Don't Paint Myself Into Corners") made a hit by Trisha Yearwood; Howard does just as well if not better with the touch ballad. But it wasn't until 2002 that Howard managed to place a hit on the charts, when the single "Forgive" deputed.

In addition to being an accomplished songwriter, Rebecca can also sing like a troop of angels.
