makes her feature film acting debut in WALK THE LINE. The Grammy Award winning singer and songwriter most recently cut the album Suit Yourself on the heels of 2003's Identity Crisis, both of which highlight her timeless American music. Her new record burrows deep into Lynne's feelings and observations, audacious in their emotional nakedness. Lynne earlier earned widespread attention for her 2000 album, I Am Shelby Lynne, which created a stir and garnered Lynne a Grammy for Best New Artist. In 2001, she released the acclaimed Love, Shelby.
Lynne began her career in an earlier incarnation with her 1988 debut Sunrise, followed by Tough All Over in 1990 and Soft Talk in 1991, the same year she was awarded the Country Music Horizon Award for best rising talent of the year. Two more albums, Temptation and Restless, followed. In 1998, Lynne left Nashville and moved to Palm Springs, California where she began writing the songs for I Am Shelby Lynne.
