Congratulations to Carolyn Martin!
"Cookin' With Carolyn" is Named 2011 WMA Western Swing Album of the Year!

The award was announced at the Western Music Association's annual awards show in Albuquerque, NM on November 21, 2011.

Carolyn is thrilled by this honor, and would like to thank the WMA membership and especially the wonderful musicians who played on the record and made the project so much fun.

Biography Courtesy of Carolyn Martin:
Singer Carolyn Martin has been described as “… a winning throwback to the days where emotion was measured and artful rather than loud and histrionic.” From European concert halls to intimate venues at home in Nashville, fans have come to know Carolyn as a  vocalist with a unique sense of musical style, a charismatic stage presence and a voice that exudes passion and experience – the soulful elegance that is the very essence of music.

Carolyn Martin is a native Texan who has lived in Nashville for many years. She began singing professionally while growing up in Abilene, and began traveling and performing throughout Texas and the rest of the US a few years later. Since settling in Nashville in 1985, she has had the pleasure of working with many of the most talented musicians and singers in the world.

Carolyn was a member of Nashville’s Time Jumpers, a western swing band comprised of Nashville’s finest session musicians and singers for 11 years. Their latest project, “Jumpin’ Time”, garnered two Grammy nominations. Carolyn was also featured as part of the Time Jumpers DVD “Jumping Time”, which has appeared on more than 140 Public Television stations and has won two Emmy awards.

A belief that “Swing is Swing” allows her group, Carolyn Martin’s Swing Band, to range far beyond the ‘tradtitional’ western swing repertoire; she will juxtapose western swing classics from Bob Wills, Cindy Walker and Spade Cooley with swing era song from Peggy Lee, Hoagy Carmichael and Louis Armstrong, show tunes from Broadway and Hollywood, traditional country tunes from Faron Young and Hank Williams along with new material written by Carolyn and her friends.
