As an independent artist who lives by the motto “Own Your Own Universe,” Texas trailblazer Terri Hendrix has spent two decades juggling both her art (making music out of life) and everything that goes into maintaining a “DIY” music career. So it’s only fitting that the award-winning singer-songwriter’s first book, “Cry Till You Laugh — The Part That Ain’t Art,” is two books in one: part companion piece to her latest album, "Cry Till You Laugh," with lyrics, photos and essays linked to the songs on the record, and part how-to guide for going-your-own way in the music business (that's "The Part That Ain't Art"). The essays dance from “cry” to “laugh” and back again, touching candidly on everything from hilarious road stories and stage-fright jitters to poignant matters of the heart and her life-long battle with epilepsy. The “Part That Ain’t Art” section, meanwhile, draws on both her years of firsthand experience managing her career as a “completely self-made woman” (as deemed by music legend Al Kooper), and her teaching skills as an in-demand music workshop instructor (from the Berklee School of Music to the Kerrville Folk Festival to her own annual “Life’s a Song” retreat in Port Aransas, Texas). First published at the end of 2010, the book has been warmly received by both fans and critics alike, with the Austin American Statesman calling it "equal parts spiritual and practical, honest, funny, useful, revelatory and moving." Once she sold out of the first-edition run of 1,000 copies (within a mere six months after the book's release), Hendrix dove back into the original manuscript, revising and updating much of the "Part That Ain't Art" section and also adding a handful of brand new essays for a second edition. Now in its third printing, “Cry Till You Laugh — The Part That Ain’t Art” has also recently been released as an eBook.
