WOW!
Seldom do you come across an album that you can play from beginning to end without the need to skip around. This CD is an amazing listen from beginning to end and I recommend it for any music fan, country fan or not. With that said, I do have my favorites: "Is it OK to Cry Now," "I'm Over You" & "Train Without a Whistle." The voice Tawya has, along with the amazing music, is impressive enough but the lyrics/songwriting is unbelievable. It hits home. The best ten bucks I've ever spent! Do yourself a favor and buy this album.

A True Nashville MUST SEE
Went to Nashville a couple of years ago and had the pleasure of seeing Tawnya play at the Second Fiddle. She was FANTASTIC to say the very least. Myself and a couple of my good buddies were there from Michigan on motorcycle trip. Only half of us actually like country music, however we all agreed that we wouldn't even consider another trip to Nashville if we weren't able to see her play again. We all enjoyed watching her gig that night.
Was lucky enough to get Tawnya CD while we were there, and let me tell you that Carnival is one of "very few" CD's that I can listen to from begining to end without skipping a single song. They all are really good songs.
Keep up the good work Tawnya!!!! Looking forward to listening to your new album which I will be purchasing soon.

Great Act
I don't have the CD yet, I just placed the order. My family and I were very fortunate to have seen Tawnya perform at the Second Fiddle in Nashville this past week. We're the family from Wisconsin. She was awsome and if you ever get the chance to see her, I would suggest that you do not pass on the opportunity.

What a good song and a great voice. If you are not famous now....you will be when more people discover you.

Classy traditional and old-style country with a modern twist
Tawnya Reynolds is a new voice in the world of country music. The first signing to Wright of Center Music, Tawnya is a fine singer/songwriter bursting with talent. Hailing from Ruidoso in New Mexico Tawnya has performed in Nashville for the past six years. Tawnya’s influences include the legendary Merle Haggard and popular female country singer Kelly Willis. Tawnya’s music is classed as traditional and old-style country – listening to this fantastic album it is easy to see why. Tawnya has been likened to artists such as Dolly Parton and Alison Krauss. The album starts off with Worse Things Than Being Alone, a song whose lyrics suggest that just because you are with someone doesn’t mean you are happy. Tawnya is known to be a warm, friendly person with great convictions; she effortlessly brings these qualities to life in her music. Tawnya’s voice is warming and infectious – easy to fall in love with. The instrumentation used on this opening song has a strong traditional feel. I’m Over You is a more modern song yet it still retains an old fashioned country sound and style. Tawnya’s vocals bring to mind acclaimed singers such as Patty Loveless and The Judds. Whiskey Kinda Way follows on in the same vain. This is another highly polished song. Tawnya’s vocals are full of emotion on this number once again. Carnival is a charming song with great backing. Splendid lyrics make this a fine choice of title song. Is It Okay To Cry Now is a slow emotional number bursting with quality. There are hints of Tanya Tucker in Tawnya’s vocals on this evocative number. You Can Bring It Back is a slightly faster song. Tawnya’s voice is gentle never overpowering. Train Without A Whistle feels more modern than some of the other songs on the album. In this song Tawnya compares a man to a train without a whistle. Let’s Burn It Down has a rich feel to it, another song packed full of emotion and sensitive lyrics. Moment Of Weakness is a catchier number with traditional backing. Stay Here sees the listener slip back in time. Patsy Cline comes to mind when listening to this jazz infused old-style country number. Suddenly all the colour is gone and has been replaced by a world of black and white. This is a really sophisticated song that showcases Tawnya’s amazing vocals. Listeners will be overwhelmed by the nostalgia created in the music and style of this song. The album ends with two perhaps surprising yet also amazing hidden songs - I’ll Be Your Whiskey and Standing By The Rambler. Standing By The Rambler is a thoroughly modern country song completely different from anything else on the album. This song is fast paced and rocky. Highly suited to fans of a more modern and perhaps rowdy country sound. I’ll Be Your Whiskey is again very modern in sound but it is also a shinning highlight on this tremendous album. A memorable moving song that is reminiscent in style of the music of Lee Ann Womack. Tawnya’s voice is definitely suited to slow, emotive songs infused with a rich traditional backing yet songs such as Standing By The Rambler show that Tawnya can also raise her game and really belt out a number. With songs like this she could easily give the likes of Miranda Lambert a run for her money any day. I have fallen in love with Tawnya’s vocals and this outstanding album. I am sure many other fans of fine country music will as well.
