"Her songs have been cut by the likes of Jo Dee Messina and Reba McEntire, but now it's time for this powerhouse vocalist to take centerstage on her own! With a voice that perfectly captures her very accessible country material, this singer-songwriter's subtle growl will make even the most jaded Music Row fan purr!" aol/tonos.com
"Rarely are the best songwriters able to back up their lyrics with strong vocals, and most of today's stars don't write meaningful music. Thompson has it all and combines her music with her love of horses to create an album true to her inspirations."

"When she sings it... you feel it!"
Robby Lynn, Sunday's Kind of Country, syndicated radio
"Purely rockin', rootsy female country rock with a sweet but
gutsy voice that will show you the way or show you the door. For Country fans of Emmylou Harris, Martina McBride and Faith Hill this is the perfect addition to your feel-good collection and yet, it's modern and open-armed enough to appeal to roots and alt country fans. She's got a knack for pop-ish hooks and glorious jangles; you'll find that you have a funny obsession with the repeat button." cdbaby.com
