Live! An Evening With Crystal Gayle Dvd & Cd Released

Nashville, TN. (Crystal Gayle Official Website/ - One of the most difficult challenges that can face an aspiring musician living under the shadow of a famous relative is emerging from that shadow and establishing himself as a star in his own right with his own individual identity – or her identity in the case of CRYSTAL GAYLE.

Born Brenda Gail Webb, the younger sister of country superstar and Country Music Hall of Fame member Loretta Lynn, was confronted with just that when she set out to find her place on the country music scene in the early 1970s. At the suggestion of her sis, she changed her name to Crystal to avoid any confusion with fellow country star Brenda Lee and the name proved to be a perfect fit. She may have been born a 'Coal Miner's Daughter' but she has risen about those humble beginnings to bring her talents around the world as a musical ambassador for country music – and manage to find her own star to shine.

Thanks to the immense success of 'Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue,' Crystal Gayle was a bona fide star. The world was now her stage and before long she was bringing her music to enthusiastic crowds throughout America and even as far away as England, Japan, Germany, and Australia. She even made history when she appeared on Bob Hope's ground-breaking 'On the Road to China' television special, the first American network program produced in China.

Her ankle length tresses and designer dresses set her apart from traditional country divas and her crystal clear singing made her one of the premiere voices in all of music. The accolades poured in, from CMA & ACM Female Vocalist of the Year to Grammy Awards to landing her own CBS television special that brought her amazing talent to a national audience. As the 80's opened, Crystal continued her domination of the charts with 11 chart-toppers and 9 top-10 hits through the end of the decade. The 90's saw her expand her musical boundaries with a Grammy nominated tribute album to the late Hoagy Carmichael and the critically acclaimed children's album In My Arms.

Crystal's name and accomplishments have earned her a special place in the hearts of fans around the world and the opportunity to see Crystal Gayle is person is still a 'must have' ticket. This live DVD and CD collection was recorded at the Renaissance Center in Dickson, Tennessee, just outside of Nashville, where Crystal and her family call home. It showcases her 30 years of hits and offers a special insider's view of the life and times of one of country music's – and the world's – favorite entertainers.
