Hi Carolyn, I am so excited to see you coming to Wichita Falls in July! I surely miss jamming with you and David at the WMA festivals. I will spread the word to the locals. Perhaps we can meet beforehand for supper or something.... RRR

We saw you (again) last night in Arroyo Grande. Your voice has that beautiful old time quality. You could certainly teach these new "stars" a thing or two about what GREAT music is. You have such a bubbly personality and are a true delight to watch on stage. Please keep coming back!!
January 2, 2015
Dear Carolyn, Cong, I heard you at N.W.W.S.M.S.at The Auburn Eagles. Anyway best wishes.

Jeanne Yearian sent a copy of her doing a Western Swing number which I enjoyed very much. She was backed up by Lucy Dean Record and B.B.Morse. good and dear friends of mine.

Heard you this evening at The Nashville Palace and, again,really enjoyed the music. I haved liked Texas Swing since the first time I heard "Asleep at the Wheel" and they got me to listening to Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. Keep it up - there's an audience for what you do! God bless you and yours.
September 21, 2014
Hi Carolyn and Dave,
I really enjoyed your music last night at Gary and Rose's. I enjoyed spending time with both of you. Thanks for coming. I'm looking forward to the next time. I'll be playing the CD on my way to work on Monday!!!

OMG (Ha, just keeping up with the times!). My wife and I are so glad to have been invited by Greg Hardy (Uncle Zilla) to spend Sunday afternoon (July 20th) at the Free Man Cajun Cafe in Deep Ellum. In his listing of musicians, he said that Carolyn Martin was going to play Guitar and sing. He assured us that we would be amazed! WOW, he was NOT KIDDING! We feel fortunate to have had a rare, intimate musical experience with awesome musicians that can only be experienced in such a small setting. As a bonus, we got a special treat in having David play the bass the whole performance. We became instant FANS! We purchased cd's to take the memories home and relive them! May you continue to be blessed, and thereby, blessing others! Most enthusiastically, Bobby & Howard from Denton, TX.

I saw you when you were on Larry's diner for the first time. Loved your sound; so refreshingly simple, yet elegant. Not grossly over-arranged and produced, as so many of today's artists. That's one of the reasons I like Larry's diner show so much.
I immediately bought all 5 of your current CDs. KEEP IT UP!!!!!

Heard you on Larry's Country diner. You blew mw away. Your voice is classic western country and your band is what I remember from the 40's and 50's. Ray Benson ain't got nothin on you lady.
I play guitar and was totally flabergasted by Rory Hoffman. Hope I can get to Nashvile to see you guys sometime.
I'm 76 and don't go to the concerts these days cause it's just not my style of music, but you guys as the young folks say ARE AWESOME.
I also would love to play your guitar just once. Hope to meet you sometime.
Here's to good pickin'.....

Just saw you on Larry's Country Diner and really enjoyed your singing. Small world. I grew up just outside of Abilene, used to go see the Big State Jamboree with Slim Willett. Graduated from McMurry College and have always been a western swing fan. Glad there are still folks keeping that music alive. We now live in Murfreesboro,TN after being native Texans for 70 years. Good luck!
April 22, 2014
Hear you on WSM this am with Bill Cody.

Watched your performance on Larry's Country Diner tonight. Western swing was my Mother's favorite music. She's 90 now. I guess I got my taste in music from her, as it is mine too. I'll be sending her one of your CDs. I keep trying to decide who you look like, and it just hit me. If they ever do your life story on film, a young Meryl Streep could have played you....if she had been born prettier. thank you for the entertainment. _Phil

Just mailed a check to order your Cookin' With Carolyn album. I have seen everything I can find on you tube about you and am amazed at how much you resemble Jo Stafford. Guess you have heard that a lot.
Good luck and hope I get to see y'all some day.

May 22, 2012
I attended your show this evening 05-22-2012 at the Broken Spoke in Austin. I was not sure how a lady would pull off western swing music but you do a fantastic job. I was very glad I went, even for the short time I was able to be there.
I have played traditional country music for the last 43 years, not much in the last 10 now I do mostly country Gospel music when I play. I have evn worked up The Kind of Love and also a Gospel song words to Faded Love to keep some western swing in with our Gospel show.
If you ever are in dire need for a drummer or bass guitar player let me know I might be able to help you out. Or if you are in need of any musicians in the central Texas or anywhere in Texast me know I would be happy to help you out if I could, I still have a lot of country music contacts in central Texas.
I worked for a couple of years in a band that was Curtis Potter's backup band and I have worked for Johnny Bush on several occasions and once for Hank Thompson.
Sorry to bore you with my life story but if you are in the area again I will be sure to try to come see you. And now I am on the road with my job quite a bit so I need to keep a closer look at your schedule.
Thank you again for a fantasic show.
May 18, 2012
Johnny Cox handed me your "Swing" cd yesterday and I must say it is fantastic!! I'll be very happy to include it on the playlist for "Ranch Dance" on KPIR 1420 in Granbury, Texas.
Best of luck to you and future projects.

We (my mom, dad, husband and I) heard your CD playing in a shop in Old ABQ. The shop is called the Vintage Cowgirl. We enjoyed the CD I looked up your website and ordered 2 Cookin' With Carolyn. One for my folks and one for my husband and I.
Do you have anything scheduled for Milwalkee or anywhere around Gurnee Il? My folks would love to see you sing. They do not have email so can't sign up for updates.

RECORDING YOU PLAYED TOWARD THE END OF THE HOUR? I MISSED THEIR NAME. THAT RECORDING HAS A LATE '30s EARLY '40s FEEL.

Bobby here from Alexandria in Scotland your one of the best singers of our time no question about that.
Carolyn do you think you'll ever come to the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow.
Because if you do I'll be first in line for a ticket I love your music and will make a point of buying your CDs the first chance I get.
Keep singing with that great voice of yours

Carolyn I read about "Cookin' With Carolyn" in American Cowboy and afte listening to a few of your songs on your website I was totally impressed. I will be ordering some of your music very soon. If you are ever in Texas and need a drummer let me know, it would be a thrill. I have been in country music, and western swing, for 42 years so if you find out you need a drummer or any musician let me know I can probably help you out.

Old buddy and fellow Texan, DJ Red Jones at WKNG, Tallapoosa GA, played my new Texas Swing song Wherever In Texas (pre-release) Thursday morning, Jan 27, 2011, and emailed me "...Are you familar with Carolyn Martin? She played the Lowell Opry House here not long ago. We had a strong mutual tie-in...Abilene is her home town and she has spent a lot of time in Baird...releasing Wherever In Texas I think it could be a good western swing hit. Should get good air play in TX." I would like to send it to you, Carolyn, or, You can hear it on ReverbNation/jerrykgreen. (I now live in Hendersonville TN)

I imported you're album Cookin'with Carolyn from the USA , and I want to say to you that it is a great/wonderful album.
Great musicians, and you're voice is really very, very good.It's all in the tradition of Bob Wills, Asleep at the wheel, Patsy and Henk.
So, this album helps me through the winter.
I hope, someday, you come to play in Amsterdam, Holland.
I will show you around in my wonderful city.
All the best, and I keep following you!!
