From 1979 to 1987, Sylvia became one of the most celebrated women in country music. She released five albums with a dozen Number One and Top Ten hits, sold over four million records and won multiple awards including the Academy of Country Music’s Female Vocalist of the Year and Billboard’s #1 Country Female Artist. In the 1990s, Sylvia began sharing new facets of her voice and perspective as an artist. Last year she released the critically acclaimed ‘It’s All in the Family,’ her most personal album to date. While the sound of much of Sylvia’s formative music is iconic of a certain era and genre, she notes that the songs themselves are not bound to a specific time and place.
