Kelly recorded her first Billboard single, “Lady, Lady” at the age of 15, filmed a video that came to the attention of CMT—, and in rapid fire time was soon appearing as a regular on Nashville’s popular Ralph Emery Morning Show.
Kelly’s teen years were a whirlwind that found the dark haired, green-eyed beauty poised on the very edge of a breakthrough to major stardom. She moved to national attention as a frequent guest on the highly popular Music City Tonight, with Crook & Chase, televised on TNN. Kelly next made the finals of Ed McMahon’s popular weekly-televised Star Search— bringing her vibrant, emotion filled vocal style to mainstream audiences.
Kelly became a semi-regular artist on Ralph’s Emery’s popular “Nashville Now” on TNN, pulling in major viewer mail and a large national fan base. On the road in concert, Kelly shared billings with legends such as Barry Gibb, Ronnie Milsap, Brenda Lee, George Jones, Lorrie Morgan, Ricky Skaggs, TG Sheppard and many of the hot new artists from her own peer group. Kelly has made music her true passion.
Along with balancing a busy career as a performing artist, Kelly is a highly sought after and accomplished songwriter and producer. Kelly’s songs have been featured on the major motion picture screen and have been recorded by artists such as Lorrie Morgan, Jerry Lee Lewis, Crystal Gayle, George Jones, BJ Thomas, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Janie Frickie to name a few.
Kelly released her third studio album, “11:11” in late 2011, which gained much critical acclaim. The single and video for her popular breakup anthem “I’m Done” has received over 230,000 YouTube hits and can be seen on some of the biggest music video networks. Kelly’s highly anticipated fourth studio album, “Shades Of K”, a compilation of love songs, was released in April 2013. Kelly and her country superstar husband, TG Sheppard, released “Iconic Duets” in late 2013. The album, which features some of the greatest duets of all time, is already gaining rave reviews from the media and has quickly become a fan favorite.
As a recent inductee into the North American Country Music Hall Of Fame, Kelly Lang’s career continues to grow at a rapid pace. She was recently invited by Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees to perform “Islands In The Stream” in honor of Kenny Roger’s, at his recent Country Music Hall Of Fame induction. Kelly and Barry also performed together at the Grand Ole Opry.
Kelly’s lyrics, voice and high energy show reach out to audiences of all ages. She brings her life experiences to the stage each night and shines as she connects with crowds of people, leaving them begging for more of her tender, moving and grooving songs. Kelly Lang is a true artist in every sense of the word.
