Country artist Sherry Lynn'S Beautiful Life
More exciting news on Yachtstock RiverJam's schedule of artists for June 15th as Sherry Lynn has just been added! Sherry adds to the country and americana slate of artists, joining emerging country artist Sara Spicer and 15+ bands on two stages for a day of incredible music. Sherry Lynn has just completed a promising new album, "Beautiful Life" which will be available just in time for her appearance June 15th. The title track features a sparkling duet with country superstar Crystal Gayle. Sherry Lynn grew up in the Philly region in Clayton, New Jersey. Inspired as a child by the film "Coal Miners Daughter" Sherry has her own story made for a Hollywood movie. Sherry explains that she got far more than she expected out of an opportunity to open for Crystal Gayle at historic Broadway Theatre in Pittman, New Jersey in 2006.
"I've opened for a lot of artists, and when you're the opening act, many of them don't even come out of their dressing rooms until you're finished", Sherry says. "Crystal was one of the few who actually sat there in the green room and watched my performance. After the show, she sat with me, my mom and my grandma for over an hour, talking like we were friends for years."
It was one of those freeze-frame moments for Sherry. As a child, she'd set her career compass to singing the same day she watched Loretta Lynn's biopic Coal Miner's Daughter. And now there she was, hanging out with Loretta's sister. In 2010, a chance meeting in Nashville with Crystal and her husband, Bill Gatzimos, took Sherry's relationship with Crystal to another level. When Crystal heard about Sherry's new album she offered to lend her vocals to Beautiful Life, a song co-penned by award-winning tunesmith Danny Wells, best known for George Strait's "Check Yes Or No" and Rascal Flatts' "These Days." Sherry and Crystal joined voices at Crystal's studio, Audio 51, with producer Ted Hewitt, the studio wizard behind Rodney Atkins' string of Number One hits. Crystal's son Chris Gatzimos engineered the session.
Come out to Yachtstock RiverJam in Essington PA June 15th and share Sherry Lynn's "Beautiful Life" and support a great cause!
