Hangin' Up My Heart is the 1983 debut album of actress Sissy Spacek. The album produced three singles: "Lonely but Only for You", which reached number 15 on Hot Country Songs, along with "If I Can Just Get Through the Night" and "If You Could Only See Me Now".[1]

Critical reception[edit]

An uncredited review in People magazine said that Spacek's "vocals are amazingly strong and sensuous". The reviewer also called it an "auspicious showing by an Oscar-winning actress who has a natural feel for this genre".[2] Keith Tuber of Orange Coast magazine was also positive, writing that the title track "erases the initial feelings of mistrust, the kind that accompanies any singing work from a professional actress". Tuber also praised Rodney Crowell's production.[3]
