There's something special about an artist who prioritizes the journey just as much as the destination with their songwriting. Kentucky's Jasmine Poole brings an impeccable sense of patience and compassion into every measure of her new song as Wonky Tonk. 'Cryin' Shame' has reverence not only for her country forebearers but also for her own instincts and sentiments. Poole describes "walking in the park", and the mellow guitar strums, layered vocals, and added percussion and harmonica replicate the feeling of just reflecting and taking in everything around you, one step at a time. Don't be fooled by any apparent demureness in sound; this is a song of absolute confidence.

'Cryin' Shame' will appear on Wonky Tonk's upcoming release, Lessons, and Lovers, scheduled for release this summer.
