The first release by Anne of "I Can See Arkansas". This album has
eleven songs including a version of the Air Supply pop song "Even The
Nights Are Better". Available in record stores.

Billboard magazine review: "Her 30th Capitol album proves as much a
listening pleasure as her first, "Snowbird", released in 1970. In
addition to a number performed in French and English ("If I Ever See
You Again"), cuts like "Overboard", "I Can See Arkansas", "Roots and
Wings", "Everyday" and "Wrong End Of The Rainbow" will leave the
listener smiling."

The Rainbow". The album was co-produced by my co-writer Ray Methvin.

Billboard magazine review: "Mercury Nashville Snags Local Jenny Simpson,
Watch this voice: Jenny Simpson is Mercury Nashville's first new act
since Mark Wills, and she's turning more than a few heads with her
upcoming single...and her self-titled debut album...That rarity, a
Nashville native, Simpson has a clear, pure, mainstream voice
reminiscent of the young Trisha Yearwood. In fact, she's co-produced by
former Yearwood producer Garth Fundis..."

Steve Wariner, Laredo, MCA Records
A ten song album that features the first recording of my song "I Can See
Arkansas". Available in record stores.

Country Music magazine review: "..."I Can See Arkansas," Laredo's
opener, is the sort of great pop-country ballad about long-distance
loneliness that Glen Campbell (whose influence can be heard in
Wariner's music) used to specialize in. Here, the vast American
landscape- in this case, the wide Mississippi- becomes a metaphor for
the aching distance between two hearts."

the footsteps of the Osborne Brothers and his albums are produced by
Sonny Osborne. This album has twelve songs including an uptempo version
