There is a bright eyed enthusiasm to singer/songwriter Tayla Lynn that cannot be denied. There is a warmth in her voice, truth behind her piercing blue eyes, and genuine affection when she speaks of her history, her family and friends, and most of all her art. Born into one of Nashville’s greatest musical dynasties, Lynn’s passion for singing and performing was sparked from an early age. “I can’t remember a time that I wasn’t in the wings in some town somewhere, watchin’ my Memaw [Loretta Lynn] and my Daddy [Ernest Ray Lynn] on stage” recalls Tayla. She was four the first time she remembers her Memaw taking her on stage. Lynn recounts “I started singing as soon as I opened my mouth.”
Signed to Skyville Records in 2007, Lynn’s first major musical project was the trio Stealing Angels with Caroline Cutbirth and Jennifer Wayne; a group built for radio from a reality show the three women had appeared on together. Stealing Angels was just the tip of the iceberg for Lynn when it came to recording and working in the music industry, and her ability to self reflect has been critical to her success as an artist, a wife, and a mother. Her first solo project The Ranch, released in 2016, was the culmination of several years with the trio, a move across the country, addiction, recovery, a lot of hard work, and a dash of her grandmother, Loretta Lynn. Lynn’s experiences are wrapped up in her music; one is inseparable from the other as she writes and sings her truth about love, healing, motherhood, and the coal dust that runs through her Kentucky veins.
Lynn’s newest album on Heart of Texas Records, Tayla Lynn sings Loretta Lynn, is available everywhere on April 5, 2021. Order your copy at Heart of Texas Records.
