Shelby Lynne

When: Fri., Sept. 30, 8:30 p.m. 2011

Shelby Lynne has covered more territory than FedEx—country (from slick Nashville pop to dusty old school), Sheryl Crow-ish roots rock, smoky torch jazz, Southern soul and adult contemporary pop. She and younger sister Allison Moorer survived a traumatic childhood (including their parents' murder-suicide) to both emerge as country artists. Lynne arrived in time to catch the late-'80s New Traditionalist wave, eventually making forays into commercial country. She increasingly struggled to escape those narrow stylistic confines. She's truly found her own path in the last eight years, with a voice that suggests a slumming angel. She's now released four consecutive great albums, with another due in October. —Chris Parker
