Lynne signs with Monument; "I Am Shelby Lynne" reissue coming

Thursday, March 7, 2024 – Shelby Lynne has signed with Monument Records.

The label will reissue "I Am Shelby Lynne" on April 25 in celebration of the record's 25th anniversary with a limited-edition vinyl release to come early this summer.

After moving back to Nashville in 2018, Lynne, 55, is currently finishing her new studio album with Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild, Ashley Monroe and Gena Johnson.

Lynne said, "It's good to be back in Nashville. Being back in this city has lit me up. I've come full circle, and I can't wait to share what we've been working on." Additionally, Monument Records executive Shane McAnally said, "Artists like Shelby Lynne come once in a lifetime. Her impact on artists and fans alike, including me, has been deep and wide. I'm so proud to be a part of bringing her artistry back to the forefront with new music."

Fairchild said, "It feels important to reintroduce Shelby Lynne's genius to a fresh wave of artists and fans. I'm blown away by her profound knowledge of music and the enormity of her talent. Shelby's uniqueness lies in her extraordinary capacity to delve into human pain and beauty through her powerful voice and storytelling."

Released in April 1999, "I Am Shelby Lynne" won Lynne Best New Artist at the 43rd GRAMMY Awards. Her most recent release was "The Servant" in 2021 on Extreme Music. She also has recorded and toured with her sister, Allison Moorer.

The cover for this eponymous album, her 13th solo album and first since 2015's "I Can't Imagine," appears to be another example of her prescience. Though it had to be put together long before the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, it shows her wearing a facial mask and a look of fear. Coincidence, no doubt, but an eerie one. Don't worry though, this is not a collection of songs about social distancing and searching for Charmin. ...
CD review - Nightfall Little Big Town gets billed as a country music vocal group, but "Nightfall" plays out more like a four-headed singer-songwriter effort. Many of these songs hearken back to some of the best '70s introspective songwriter efforts. The album opens with "Next to You," which builds from a gentle meditation, into a full-on anthemic ode to the comfort and strength of fidelity. "Questions" interestingly finds an ex asking questions via song lyrics, which she can never ...
