“The Charleston Listening Room Series” continues at The Circular Congregational Church on Friday, Oct. 4 with Nashville-based, Georgia-bred, singer-songwriter, Lera Lynn. Lynn, whose new self-released sophomore album “The Avenues” comes out this winter, can easily be filed under “Americana” and “country,” but those categorizations only tell part of the story. “There are definitely aspects of earlier country in there, and rockabilly and Western swing, music of the Patsy Cline era,” she says. “I take some things from people like Conway Twitty and some of the other old country greats, and that’s very different from what country is now. Maybe that’s why the ‘country noir’ label is applied to my music so frequently.”

Lynn’s song “Bobby, Baby” (from her debut album “Have You Met Lera Lynn?”) won Merlefest’s 2011 Chris Austin Songwriting Competition (an honor shared with Gillian Welch and Tift Merritt) and Best Alternative Country Song at the Independent Music Awards Later that year, she also walked away with Best Country Artist honors at Athens’ Flagpole Music Awards.
