Some people may not know this but the singer Shelby Lynne, whom I've covered on this channel, is the older sister by 3 years of Allison Moorer. The girls were raised with an abusive drinking father. When their mother fled his presence, he found them and shot their mother and then shot himself. I can't imagine the pain for a 14yr old and a 17yr old to have to go through.

Thru her music career, she eventually married Steve Earle and had 1 child in 2010 with him. Their relationship resulted in divorce in 2015. In 2019 she re-married another country artist, Hayes Carll. Her latest album, "Blood" was released in 2019. A beautiful voice in this lady.
