Happy birthday, Shelby Lynne!

Posted on

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost eight years since Shelby Lynne released her landmark I Am Shelby Lynne disc, which had the odd distinction of scoring her the 2001 Grammy for Best New Artist, despite having been her sixth release. Anyhow, today is Lynne’s 39th birthday, which seemed a good enough excuse to revisit her achingly beautiful single for “Your Lies.” Why this track wasn’t one of the biggest hits of 2000 will always be a mystery to me. Perhaps you can help explain this pop-culture oversight in the comments section below. Either that, or just wish the fantastic Ms. Lynne the happiest of birthdays.
