Shelby Lynne Turns Thespian

“I keep a close watch on this heart of mine” – Johnny Cash
“If i was smart, I wouldn’t have a heart” – Shelby Lynne

Exceptional, genre-busting, countryish, roots rockish, alt-pop singer-songwriter Shelby Lynne will make her film debut in Walk The Line, a biopic based on the life of Johnny Cash. The Fox Searchlight film starring Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix and directed by James Mangold (Girl, Interrupted) is currently filming in Memphis. Lynne will play play Cash’s mother.

After her thespian efforts in Memphis, she will play a few dates:
8/7 Chicago, IL Northalsted Market Days (headlining)
8/22 Allegheney, PA Hartwood Amphitheatre (headlining)
9/12 Hollywood, CA Hollywood Bowl (with Lyle Lovett)
9/19 Austin, TX Austin City Limits Music Festival

Lynne has also been asked to perform with her mentor George Jones when he tapes a Soundstage episode for PBS this September – her own Soundstage performance will air on PBS on Thursday, August 26th, with songs primarily drawn from her deep and personal Identity Crisis album. And on September 24th, Lynne will appear with Tony Joe White at the Americana
Honors & Awards in Nashville. The pair will perform “Can’t Go Back Home,” a
song they co-wrote for White’s upcoming album. The event will conclude the
Americana Music Association Conference.

You can sample Identity Crisis here: sweet, sad, lived-in but not jaded.
