Cyndi ThomsonCyndi Thomson (born October 19, 1976 in Tifton, Georgia) is a country music singer/songwriter from the 2000s.

Cyndi had dreams of becoming a singer when she was a young girl. After graduating from high school and winning a Georgia Hall of Fame scholarship, she attended Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia.

She later moved to Nashville, Tennessee where she attended Belmont University & enrolled in the school’s music business program, but dropped out after a year in a half.

While working on pursuing her dream, Cyndi did various jobs, one of which was a modelling job at a party for singer Deana Carter’s album “Did I Shave My Legs for This?” being certified Platinum. One of the other models at the party introduced Cyndi to songwriter Tommy Lee James (who wrote songs for artists such as Martina McBride and Brooks & Dunn) who agreed to work with her.

Within a year of writing their first song together, Cyndi signed a deal with Sony-ATV Music Publishing as a songwriter. In 2000, Tommy Lee James introduced her to the Capitol Records Nashville label which immediately signed her to a record deal after hearing her sing three songs.
what i really meant to sayIn March of 2001, Cyndi released her debut single, “What I Really Meant To Say” which topped Billboard’s Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart for 3 weeks from September 22nd to October 6, 2001. It also crossed over to the pop charts where it peaked at #26 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it her only charting single on the Hot 100 to date.
My WorldIn July of 2001, she released her debut album, “My World” which peaked at #81 on the Billboard 200 and #7 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.

The album sold more than 500,000 copies (making it the best-selling debut album by a female country singer since LeAnn Rimes’ 1996 album, “Blue”) and was certified Gold by the RIAA ten months after the album was released.

The follow-up single from the album, “I Always Liked That Best” peaked at #19 on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart and #21 on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, staying on the chart for 20 weeks.
I'm GoneThe last single released from the album, “I’m Gone” peaked at #31 on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, staying on the chart for 17 weeks.

In late 2002 (in a letter written to her record label, fans & friends), Cyndi announced that she would be leaving her recording career, stating that being a recording artist was an “overwhelming life changing experience” and that she “cannot commit to [the] obligations” of making a new album.”

Despite that, Cyndi was featured on a compliation album, “Amazing Grace 3: A Country Salute to Gospel” in 2004 with the track, “‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus” and also sang “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” for the 2005 album, “Christmas Angels” (which was released by Capitol Nashville).

In 2006, Gary Allan’s song, “Life Ain’t Always Beautiful” (which Cyndi co-wrote under the name “Cyndi Goodman”) became a top-five hit on the country music charts. During that same year, Cyndi returned to Capitol Nashville and began recording her second album, but it was never released and she was later dropped from the label’s roster.
this timeIn October of 2009, she released a digital-only EP called “This Time” which featured five original songs. Although the EP received positive reviews from fans, it didn’t make a lot of impact on the charts due to a lack of marketing & publicity.

In 2011, she released a digital single called “Slow Me Down.” In 2015, she released a three-song EP called “ My World: The Acoustic Sessions.”

Six months later, press releases announced that Cyndi signed a record deal with the Dreamlined Entertainment Group record label and was supposed to release a single called “Sippin’ Wine on the Water” in May of 2016, but due to undisclosed reasons, it never happened.

These days, Cyndi resides in Nashville with her husband Daniel “D.J.” Goodman and two children: son, Hayden and daughter, Bella. According to research, she appears to still be performing and according to her official website, Cyndi is also an author & a speaker.
