Biography

She grew up in Jackson, Alabama. Her father was a local bandleader and her mother a harmony-singing teacher, and as children, she and her younger sister Allison Moorer --later a country recording artist in her own right-- sometimes joined their parents on-stage to sing along. But Lynne's personal history is steeped in family tragedy. While the family was living in the small town of St. Stephens, Alabama, Lynne's father, an abusive alcoholic, shot and killed her mother and then himself when Lynne was 17. Lynne and her younger sister Allison did not actually witness the shooting, as has widely been reported. Shelby and her sister briefly lived with an aunt until Lynne turned 18, whereupon she married a friend from home. The marriage lasted only a year. Lynne began supporting herself and her sister by playing music in local clubs and eventually the two moved to Nashville where she landed a recording contract with Epic Records, after appearing in TNN's Nashville Now in 1987.

After that she sang a duet with George Jones, in 1988's top 50 hit "If I Could Bottle This Up", and a record deal with Epic, where Lynne teamed with legendary producer Billy Sherrill for her 1989 debut album Sunrise. The follow-up 1990's Tough All Over, took more of a Reba McEntire-esque direction, and 1991's Soft Talk found Lynne moving into slick country-pop.

However, she was tiring of the lack of control she was afforded over her image and musical direction. She split from Epic and signed with the smaller Morgan Creek label, debuting with 1993's Temptation, an exercise in Bob Wills-style Western swing and big band jazz. Unfortunately, the label folded not long after, and she moved on to Magnatone for 1995's Restless, which marked a return to contemporary-style country.

Shelby Lynne - Music Downloads - Online (642 words)
Lynne's work ranged through country, blues, Southern soul, roots rock, Western swing, jazz, and adult contemporary pop; naturally, that eclecticism made her difficult to market, and it also resulted in pressure to record more commercial, radio-friendly material that didn't really suit her.
Lynne was born Shelby Lynne Moorer in Quantico, VA, in 1968, and grew up mostly in Jackson, AL.
However, Lynne's father was a violent alcoholic who at one point had her thrown in jail; when Lynne was 17, he shot his wife dead in the family's driveway, then turned the gun on himself while his daughters looked on.
