Jenny Lynn at KOA Campground - Nashville, TN
By: Christie B.
It has always been one of our many goals at Angry
Country to introduce our readers to new country music artists. I feel
that these young people often need a place to get their name out to
country music listeners. As has been previously stated in my articles,
these talented new artists need our help in getting both the attention of
prospective record company executives and in getting a fan following.
Jenny Lynn is one of those artists.
She first came to my attention, when I found Jenny
performing (along with her Dad and band) at The Opry Mills Mall in
Nashville. Let me say that it takes a lot of talent to drag me away from
the storefronts in a place like music city; so to say that Jenny Lynn has
talent is a fact. I sat down and listened to her perform song after song
from the top country charts, as well as her own original material. What so
impressed me was how she could take a song from one of the top artists in
country music and make it sound better; yet stay true to her own style and
Having witnessed the talent of Jenny Lynn, I vowed
to follow her career in music. When I learned that she had a new single, Its
All Over You, I traveled back to Nashville to see her perform the
song. This brought me to the KOA Campground, where you can find
Jenny Lynn performing every Monday evening at eight o'clock to a packed
audience. Taking the stage that appears like a set from the old Hee Haw
Show, Jenny Lynn would once again impress not only me but also the crowd
gathered for her performance on this evening.
As with the past performances of Jenny Lynn, she
would wow the audience with her cover versions of artists such as The
Dixie Chick's There's Your Trouble, Faith Hill's The Way You
Love Me, and Shania Twain's No One Needs to Know Right Now.
Stating that one of her favorite songs is Sara
Evan's Born To Fly, because it inspired her to continue her career
in music, she would sing the song with great emotion. The song that stole
the show for me, however, was a perfectly done Patsy Cline song Walking
Whether performing songs from past country charts
or today's hits, Jenny Lynn does them with ease (and often better than the
original artist.) Not only can she cover these songs; but she also
writes many songs herself, along with her Dad Jim and bass player in the
band Rick Casey. As is the case with Jenny Lynn's new single, Its All
Over You, a song about finding love with the person that everyone
least expected you to be with. Along with the audience, I was very taken
in by this track. The song being one of three that you will find on her
first self-produced single, you'll will also be impressed by the other two
tracks entitled Wonderin' If You Care ( a song written to
reflect the feeling of wonder at someone's feelings) and a patriotic song Land
Of The Free.
Jenny Lynn, at only nineteen years old,
already has many accomplishments to her credit. She has been a feature
entertainer at many venues over the years, from The Kentucky Opry to
the West Tennessee State Fair. She began her singing career at the
age of five performing in her church. Also to her credit are performances
at such well known venues as The Nashville Palace, The Wildhorse
Saloon, The Bluebird Cafe, and The Opry Mills Mall. She has been very
well received every where she performs and continues to win new fans.
She has recently moved from her West Tennessee
home to Nashville in the hope of securing a record deal. Recently has had
interest from recording industry executives and is hoping to secure a
record contract in the near future. Currently she is doing studio work for
Atlantis Studios and is also reviewing a production contract from Groove
Productions in Franklin, Tennessee. They have work with The Dixie
Chicks, Reba, and Tim McGraw.
I am not at all surprised to learn that Jenny Lynn
Melton has begun to draw the attention of Nashville music executives; she
is an outstanding artist with both singing and songwriting ability. Angry
Country highly recommends this young talented woman to our readers. If
you want a complete night of outstanding country music, she will satisfy
your need. For further information on Jenny Lynn, please visit her website
You will also find information there on how to purchase her new single Its
All Over You. Like myself, you will come away a fan.
