What’s Next

Singer/Songwriter Cristina Lynn infuses her music with a sound that is both fresh and familiar.  This native of North Alabama combines new takes on country standards with original songs to deliver a performance that takes the listener on a journey through the past, present, and future of country music. Click to purchase CD from CD baby! Growing up in rural Limestone County, music was an integral part of Cristina’s life.  Raised on a capella gospel singing, she developed both a love for these traditional hymns and the ability to “carry a tune” without any musical accompaniment.  Her vocal skills were further sharpened through performance with her high school FFA Quartet (the only all-female quartet to compete in the Alabama State Competition) and, after graduation, the Sweet Adelines.  After a short period of fronting for a local cover band, Cristina decided the time was right to explore her own “sound” and began songwriting in earnest. Recorded with only an acoustic guitar for backup, Cristina and guitarist / co-writer David Sheppard recently completed their debut album together.  As a new artist she is quickly developing a loyal following, and is excited about any opportunity to share her music with others. 1.

Sinners and Saints

Sinners & Saints © 2012 This ol’ world’s full of Sinners and Saints / Some times it’s hard to tell ’em apart / Cause every Sinner and Saint / They go through life trying to unbreak a heart – Cristina Lynn I penned Sinners & Saints after reading Kim’s first draft of ‘Downfall of a Good Girl’. These are my favorite lyrics because it’s so true about all of us. Sometimes we’re Sinners and sometimes we’re Saints. We all make mistakes and we’ve all had a broken heart at least once in our life. Today © 2012 Today is our wedding day / Sun-filled flowers, famly and friends they surround us -Cristina Lynn I’ve said for years that I was going to write a ‘wedding song’. I finally did it in 2012!! Not long after that, Kim sent me a text message asking did I have a wedding song for her second book!! I’d say this worked out kinda perfect! These are my favorite lyrics because these are the things I remember from my outdoor wedding. Whiskey & Honey © 2012 The coulda, woulda, shoulda’s and memories of – Cristina Lynn There’s a story behind this song that’s kinda cool and unbelievable, too. I’m happy to share when people ask me about it. I’m always saying I can coulda, woulda, shoulda something all day, but I finally have to just make a decision. This line just fell into place for the second verse. Rainin’ © 2010 Rainin’, oh it’s Rainin’ / Outside her window and inside her soul – Cristina Lynn I thought about this song for months before the lyrics unfolded. The idea came to me after I saw a show on adoption and hearing some of the moving stories. I felt like there was a song, but what kind. There was a period of time when it rained and rained and rained at home. I was sitting in our bay window watching and listening to the rain when the concept of rain inside and outside of the Mom’s soul hit me. The simple finger picking just worked…… it represented the constant rain. Service Your Heart © 2011 I dare you to hold me / One touch, you’ll never know lonely again – Cristina Lynn There’s an interesting story how this song came to life. We call this one my ‘Dog song’....
