Corben Champoux Releases New Video for “I’m So Lonesome, I Could Cry”
Country Music has always been a part of Corben Champoux’s life as some of her earliest musical memories are of time spent riding shotgun in her dad’s pick-up and listening to all of his favorites. Lucky for Corben her dad loved the classics and she grew up on a steady diet of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams Sr, Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard. Her appreciation for the legends was evident when at the age of 7, and in her first guitar lesson, Corben picked Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” as her first song to learn. With that past, it’s no wonder, “I’m So Lonesome, I Could Cry” would be her first national release. While many artists would be intimidated to take on such a classic, Corben did so with abandon and has delivered a version that’s all her own. Listen here.
