We caught up with her at Brittingham's in Lafayette Hill, PA.
Please enjoy her biography
If you have the opportunity to sit down with Sherry Lynn, you will experience a casual conversation with a kind-hearted, down-to-earth woman. She is quick to welcome you into her home and is one who would give you the shirt off of her back in a heartbeat. Anyone who is fortunate enough to know her personally is blessed to have her friendship.
Peel away that every-day, casual persona, and you will find the heart of a country girl from a little town in Jersey. Sherry Lynn's amazing soul shines through in her music. If you take a ride through Lynn's life, you would be in awe of the person she is and where she has come from. Sherry Lynn hails from a little town by the name of Clayton. At a young age, Sherry Lynn lost her father to a tragic murder. Left on her own, her mother did what she could to put food on the table and raise three children. Her mother worked two jobs, so Sherry Lynn and her siblings often had the responsibility of looking out for each other.
Growing up, Sherry Lynn acquired a love of music through her mother. Her mother often had country music playing throughout the house. "I could recite Coal Miner's Daughter word for word," chuckles Lynn. Singing into hairbrushes around the house led to dreams of stardom. Those dreams were quickly put on the back shelf as Sherry Lynn started her own family at the age of 17. She was married at the age of 19 and soon had five of her own children to take care of. Those dreams seemed to move further and further from the front of her mind.
Between then and now, a few doors have opened for her. She started writing songs and meeting people on song writing websites. She met Ted Hewitt, a veteran producer who has earned a gold selling album with Rodney Atkins' "If You're Going Through Hell". She also had the opportunity to sing the National Anthem at a Phillies and Mets game: which was the same night they happened to have Tim McGraw throwing the first pitch.
Sherry Lynn has been performing all over her home state. She has performed in a wide range of venues including: local bars, theaters, fairs, festivals and outdoor concerts. She has been fortunate enough to open for national acts along the way. You may have seen her over the past few years in a variety of country music publications. She has been featured as the "Who's New Artist" in Country Weekly. You may have also seen her in CMA Close Up Magazine. She has also hit the European market; Line Dancer Magazine in the United Kingdom featured a two page biography on the singer.
There is no doubt Sherry Lynn is not your typical cookie-cutter country singer. She has proven to be an artist who knows who she is and isn't afraid to lay it all out on the table. If you are fortunate enough to truly get to know her, you will see for yourself what an extraordinary woman she is. Robert L. Doershuk of CMA Close Up states, "If Sherry Lynn had never been born, someone would have brought her to life in a Country lyric. In fact, that song has already been created by Sherry Lynn herself..." Lynn's autobiographic song "Is There Still Time" continues to melt the hearts of listeners and stands as a testament saying that it is never too late to follow your dreams. This mother of five is proving just that with her strong will and perseverance to succeed.
Without a doubt, Sherry Lynn is moving up in the world of country music. You can find more information about Sherry Lynn and her music at her Web Site, on MySpace or on Facebook. You won't be disappointed. Jolene Downs of Country Stars Online raves over it, saying: "Lynn has a unique song delivery, and the fact that she loves what she does is just evident in her music. She just has a positive energy that comes through to the listener...She's contemporary with a touch of traditional and is definitely a new artist worth checking out..."
