October 22: Country-pop singer Shelby Lynne is 45-years-old today.

Born Shelby Lynn Moorer in Frankville, Alabama she is known as a singer, songwriter and actress. Growing up, her father, who worked as an English teacher and a juvenile corrections officer, played the guitar, while her mother was a singer.
Lynne placed several songs on the country charts during this period, but none managed to break into the top 20.
The success of the 1999 album I Am Shelby Lynne led to her winning the Grammy Award for Best New Artist, even though she had been active in the music industry for some time.
In 2008, she released a Dusty Springfield tribute album called Just a Little Lovin'. She then started her own independent record label, called Everso Records, and released two albums: Tears, Lies and Alibis and Merry Christmas.

Lynne appeared on TNN's country music show Nashville Now in 1987. She soon landed a recording contract with Epic Records. Her first recording for Epic was a duet with George Jones, "If I Could Bottle This Up," which became a top-50 hit in 1988.
