The critics also raved about Glenna's vinyl LP release, 
Lone Star: Songs and Stories Straight from the Heart of Texas

The song writing on the new album is of the highest quality, with sharp, observant lyrics, fine melodies and a few off-beat touches. – Paul Riley, Country Music People -5-Stars (England) 

Lone Star is as welcome as a rainstorm in West Texas in August… or as welcome as truth and beauty at any time here in New York City . . . Glenna Bell is a gift for sure, and a gift to be shared. – Greg Victor, Parcbench.live

Most modern country artists have no idea what being ‘country’ means . . . Glenna knows . . . Listening to Lone Star is an experience I recommend very highly. – Rock Doctor Music Reviews, John Kereiff

Wild, deep stuff firmly in the literary tradition with no dust on it, here's a shining reason of why they love her so much. – Chris Spector, Midwest Record Entertainment: Reviews, News, and Views (Chicago)

I hung on every word. – Robert K. Oermann, Music Row (Nashville)

Bell’s music is intelligent, unique, and provocative. Grab yourself a glass of wine, find a quiet spot and listen up. – Jim Hynes, Elmore Magazine

Glenna Bell's Music Honored at the State Capitol in Austin, Texas 

On May 15, 2007, State Representative Jessica Farrar and the Texas House of Representatives honored the music of native East Texan singer-songwriter Glenna Bell with House Resolution No. 1304, which was read during a ceremony on the Floor of the House at the State Capitol in Austin. House Speaker Tom Craddick was in attendance, and personally congratulated Miss Bell for her musical contributions to the Lone Star State:

 

H.R. No. 1304 R E S O L U T ION

WHEREAS, A talented singer and songwriter, Beaumont native Glenna Bell is drawing attention for her stark yet beautiful songs that conjure up the heartfelt essence of traditional country music while expressing a fresh, contemporary perspective; and

WHEREAS, Ms. Bell has recorded three albums to date, Nobody's Girl, which appeared in 1998, Face This World, from 2005, and The Road Less Traveled, which is scheduled to appear in 2008; each features her haunting songs that present tales of heartache, love, and loss in a stripped down and powerful style; and

WHEREAS, Glenna Bell's music is colored by the sounds that she grew up with in East Texas: a cappella hymns sung in her family's church and old-school country music that she discovered in her relatives' record collections; with the help of veteran Texas musicians such as John Evans, who has produced Ms. Bell's last two albums, and Johnny Bush, who sings on The Road Less Traveled, Glenna Bell has distilled her influences into moving songs that are receiving airplay on country and Americana radio stations across the country; and

WHEREAS, Carrying forward the classic, unembellished style that has graced so much great music from Texas, Glenna Bell has emerged as a musician and storyteller of great promise and stands as an exciting addition to the musical tradition of the Lone Star State;

Now, therefore, be it RESOLVED, that the House of Representatives of the 80th Texas Legislature hereby honor Glenna Bell for her musical accomplishments and extend to her best wishes for continued success; and, be it further RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be prepared for Ms. Bell as an expression of high regard by the Texas House of Representatives.

I certify that H.R. No. 1304 was adopted by the House on April 13, 2007 by a non-record vote. --Chief Clerk of the House
