August 24: Kristyn Osborn of the sister act, SHeDAISY, is 43-years-old today.

Kristyn Robyn Osborn was born in Magna, Utah, on August 24, 1970. The Osborn sisters, which includes Kristyn along with Kelsi Marie and Kassidy Lorraine, began singing at early ages, performing for relatives in their hometown, Magna, Utah. They sold tickets to neighborhood shows and performed at local retirement homes and performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Utah Jazz home games.
After moving to Nashville, Tennessee, they worked similar shifts at different department stores and shared a car, which they collectively owned. The trio began their careers as The Osborn Sisters, were signed to the Nashville division of RCA Records and recorded an album which was never released.
By 1999 the sisters renamed the group SHeDAISY and signed to Lyric Street Records. The group's name is derived from the word shideezhí, a Navajo term meaning "my little sister."
Kristyn is the group's songwriter, she wrote or co-wrote every song on SHeDAISY's studio albums apart from "God Bless The American Housewife." Kassidy is the lead vocalist, with Kelsi on high harmony and Kristyn on low harmony.
Early in their career, SHeDAISY worked with Jason Deere, a Mormon songwriter in Nashville and a native of Oklahoma. He produced the band while it was signed to Lyric Street.
SHeDAISY’s debut album, The Whole SHeBANG, was released in 1999. Its first three singles — "Little Good-Byes" reached number 3 and "This Woman Needs" reached number 9 and "I Will… But,” released in 2000, reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts. The album's fourth single, "Lucky 4 You (Tonight I'm Just Me)" did not reach the Top Ten, while 2001's "Still Holding Out for You" peaked at number 27.

The Whole SHeBANG was certified platinum in the U.S. SHeDAISY appeared on the Disney Channel television program So Weird in 1999 and the ABC Network program The Drew Carey Show in 2001.
SHeDAISY released their first greatest hits compilation, The Best of SHeDAISY, in February 2008, which included the greatest hits from their first four studio albums, excluding the Christmas album. SHeDAISY has recorded a fifth studio album, A Story to Tell, which was produced by Jann Arden. Previews of two new songs, "A 2 Me" and "Mr. McLennen,” are available on their official website. The title of the album is derived from lyrics in "Mr. McLennen.”
On March 9, 2010, it was announced that SHeDAISY had left Lyric Street Records.
During their careers, SHeDAISY has charted fifteen times on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.
