Sherry Lynn - A Beautiful Life

For Sherry Lynn, Beautiful Life is more than her sophomore album; it’s her view of the world. The title cut, a duet with Grammy-winning superstar Crystal Gayle, backs it up: Life is short, so jump in with both feet, chase your dreams, hold fast and relish the ride. That’s exactly what Sherry has been doing since she transitioned from the Karaoke stage to opening in 2006 for Sammy Kershaw at Pitman, New Jersey’s historic Broadway Theatre. Fast-forward two years, when Sherry was invited back to the Broadway to open for Crystal Gayle, one of Sherry’s musical heroes. The concert turned out to be a pivotal moment in Sherry’s career. “I’ve opened for a lot of artists, and when you’re the opening act, most of them don’t even come out of their dressing rooms until you’re finished”, Sherry says. “Crystal was one of the few who actually sat there in the green room and watched my performance. After the show, she sat with me, my mom and my grandma for over an hour, talking like we were friends for years.” It was one of those freeze-frame moments for Sherry. As a child, she’d set her career compass to singing the same day she watched Loretta Lynn’s biopic Coal Miner’s Daughter. And now there she was, hanging out with Loretta’s sister. In 2010, a chance meeting in Nashville with Crystal and her husband, Bill Gatzimos, took Sherry’s relationship with Crystal to another level. When Crystal heard about Sherry’s new album---there are no secrets on Music Row---she offered to lend her vocals to Beautiful Life, a song co-penned by award-winning tunesmith Danny Wells, best known for George Strait’s Check Yes Or No and Rascal Flatts’ These Days. Sherry and Crystal joined voices at Crystal’s studio, Audio 51, with producer Ted Hewitt, the studio wizard behind Rodney Atkins’ string of Number One hits.

You say you’re an island 
I think that you just might be
Cause your missing out on so much
 it’s like you’re lost at sea

You say you don’t need no one
 don’t want no one needing you
It’s all just a waste of your time 
but it’s just an excuse

Only love can break a heart and only love can make it better
When you think your gonna fall apart
 it’s the only thing that keeps you together
You can try and go and live without it 
dodge your way around it But while your running
 your gonna fall right in so what are you running from

you say you don’t need no one
 don’t want no one needing you
it’s all just a waste of your time
 but it’s just an excuse oh you know it’s not true

Only love can break a heart and only love can make it better
When you think your gonna fall apart
 it’s the only thing that keeps you together
You can try and go and live without it 
dodge your way around it But while your running
 your gonna fall right in so what are you running from

It could be just around the corner 
or she could be staring you right in the face yeah 

you try to go and live without it 
dodge your way around it
 but while you’re running
 you’re gonna fall right in
so what are you running from

what are you running from
