Concerts Under the Stars: Terri Hendrix

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-07-21
Terri Hendrix's 12th album Cry Till You Laugh proves the SA native has mastered the art of switching things up. Hendrix's voice is basically the only thread connecting twangy tracks like "Hand Me Down Blues" and jazzy rants like "Take Me Places," but perhaps the biggest surprise on the album -produced by Grammy-winner Lloyd Maines - is "Whatachoice," a 30-second recording made while Hendrix (who co-wrote the Dixie Chicks' Grammy-winning "Lil' Jack Slade") decides whether or not to order a cinnamon roll from a drive-thru window. With Hendrix's eclectic repertoire and wry sense of humor, the Botanical Garden's Concerts Under the Stars series concludes on a note that's pure Texas.
