Shelby Lynne to Perform at The Kent Stage


Shelby Lynne heads back out on the road starting today (Feb. 23) in Massachusetts and has dates scheduled through the end of April which include a performance at The Kent Stage on February 28.

Lynne first appeared on TNN’s country music show Nashville Now in 1987, and soon after signed her first record contract with Epic. She hit the country charts for the first time on a duet with George Jones called “If I Could Bottle This Up,” which became a top-50 hit in 1988. She released her debut album in September 1989 and in 1990 was named the ACM’s Top New Female Vocalist. She was also a part of Vince Gill’s 1996 High Lonesome Sound album, where she provided background vocals on “You And You Alone.” Gill and Lynne performed the song at the 1997 CMA awards show.

Lynne’s vast array of musical offerings has included everything from country to rock and pop to blues. In 1998, she released an eclectic mix of music on her sixth studio album, I Am Shelby Lynne. The album was met with much critical acclaim and in 2001, 13 years and 6 albums into her career, she was named the 43rd Annual Grammy Awards Best New Artist.

She and her younger sister Allison Moorer released their first album, Not Dark Yet last summer. The project contained contained the pair’s takes on songs originally recorded by Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Merle Haggard, Jason Isbell and Amada Shires, and more. The record closed with “Is It Too Much,” a song Lynne had nearly completed before they decided to work on it together. The sister duo toured for much of the latter half of 2017 together.

In all, her 13 career studio albums have provided fans with a steady stream of her catchy yet authentic brand of pop-country. Lynne’s most recent solo album, I Can’t Imagine, was released in 2015.

Shelby Lynne will be performing at The Kent Stage (175 East Main, Kent, Ohio 44240) on Wednesday, February 28 at 8pm. Tickets are  are $30-$40 and are available at the The Kent Stage website.
