If Music City USA lines up for two sold out shows at any club, something really big must be happening! And that was the case when the talented and provocative Miss Shelby Lynne returned to her old stomping ground for the first time since recording her new rootsy rock 'n roll Island Records cd I AM SHELBY LYNNE.

Never known as a writer, Shelby debuted as one on this record, "I wanted to do some songs of my own, it's as simple as that," she said. "I've always written songs but I never would have really used them because they weren't good enough until now. I recorded the album all over the place, Mobile, Alabama, horns in Northern California, strings in Memphis, Tennessee, living rooms and kitchens all over America."

About choosing her producer, the legendary Boz (she calls him Bill), she said, "I sought him out. I liked the work he had done with Madonna and Michael Jackson, and I wanted to do a rock and roll album with clean sound that still had roots. I think he gave me that sound, especially on my single, "Life Is Bad."

Now living in Palm Springs, CA, Shelby said, "I've never had more fun than now. This is really more about me than before. I lived in Nashville for about 10 years and couldn't sell a thing, so this is great." Once and for all squashing rumors about hostility between herself and sister Alison Moorer, who currently resides in Nashville and is a recording artist on Shelby's former label MCA, she repeatedly stated, "I love you, Sissy" from the stage and backstage.

To say she was a crowd-pleaser is putting it mildly. To a room full of Nashville's music elite she did a two+ hour set that never stopped rocking. With her long blonde hair, rip roaring guitar, and rock goddess stage gear, she looked great.

We're glad to see her back! / Issue 9 - September 2018
