Jenny Simpson is the only album by American country music singer Jenny Simpson. It was released on November 3, 1998 via Mercury Nashville.

Content[edit]

It includes the single "Ticket Out of Kansas", Simpson's only chart entry, which was previously recorded by Regina Regina on their debut album; also included is "Grow Young with You", a duet with Michael Peterson. This song was later recorded by Andy Griggs and Coley McCabe for the soundtrack to the 2000 film Where the Heart Is.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

Jana Pendragon of Allmusic gave the album two stars out of five, writing that Simpson "sounds like a million other young women trying to break into pop-country music."[2] Jeffrey B. Remz of Country Standard Time said that Simpson's voice was "pleasant enough", but thought that the album's sound lacked variety.[3]
