Sherry Lynn - Country Music Singer, Songwriter - Washington Twp, NJ
(Washington Twp, NJ)
Mention the New Jersey music scene and thoughts that immediately come to mind would most likely be Bon Jovi, Springsteen, Asbury Park and the Stone Pony. Not exactly the kind of place that you'd think a Country singer would hail from, let alone someone that was inspired by legends like Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle. Newcomer Sherry Lynn is out to change all that. And while her hometown of Clayton, NJ may not be Butcher Holler. Look closely and you'll see some similarities.
The album, "It's A Woman Thing," includes three songs that Sherry had a hand in writing. She was a co-writer on "Way Past Over You," and "Simple Things." When it came to the song, "Is There Still Time," the lyrics poured out of her, spreading her innermost thoughts and fears onto the paper. This song she had to write by herself. It seems that all of that experience of raising kids, waiting on tables, marrying young, was the inspiration. "That song is autobiographical and I really want it to help encourage other woman, maybe in the same boat as I once was in, to not give up."
Lynn says that her most memorable moment in her career so far was singing the National Anthem for the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies and the NY Mets in front of a crowd of over 45,000 people. She says that the only thing that will top that right now is singing on the Opry. Lynn is currently in the studio recording her next project with some new music that is sure to make people stand up and take notice. Her new single "What a Day to Shake a Heartache" will be hitting radio in April. Definitely an Artist you don't want to miss.
