Cyndi Thomson returns after three years

Thursday, January 19, 2006 – More than three years after leaving the music business behind after one hit album, Cyndi Thomson seems to be back.

"Cyndi's just in the early stages of making a record, and we're delighted to be working with her again," said Capitol Nashville publicist Judy McDonough in an email.

There is no word on when an album may be out.

Thomson debuted in 2001 with "My World" and had a number 1 hit with "What I Really Meant to Say."

But she left the industry, saying she did not want to be part of the music business. It is not known what prompted the change of heart.

CD reviews for Cyndi Thomson

Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day. The quintet is part of a generation of musicians with bluegrass as the basis, but not totally the sum of the music either.... »»»
Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
