Title: Country Singer
Location: Madison, Tennessee, United States
Cristy Lane, Country Singer, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of vocal performance.
Initially very shy, Ms. Lane began singing in at a church in Nashville and one day, after hearing her sing in the kitchen, her husband encouraged her to sing professionally. Her songs include, “Penny Arcade,” “Let Me Down Easy,” “I Just Can’t Stay Married to You,” “I Have a Dream” and “One Day at a Time.” Her albums include “Cristy’s Greatest Hits” and “Simple Little Worlds.” Her biography One Day at a Time, written by Lee Stoller, was a number one best-seller and is currently being adapted into a film. Earning her stage name from the Chicago based DJ, Chris Lane, Ms. Lane began her career with a guest slot on Chicago’s WGN radio program but struggled to get a career going. After her 120-show singing tour of Vietnam was ended by a devastating helicopter crash that almost took her life, she moved with her family to Nashville, Tennessee, where her husband began his own record label, LS Records.
After releasing several hits, Ms. Lane hit her stride and became one of the top-selling artists of all time on television and her biography sold over three million copies around the world. Her theatre, the Cristy Lane Theatre, became a popular attraction and in addition to her own shows, hosted those of Ray Price, Ferlin Husky, and Peter Lemongello. In 2003, Ms. Lane was awarded the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall of Fame Award, for special recognition of the joy and comfort her performances brought to military bases at home and abroad. No stranger to using her music to bring comfort to others, she released an album after the Sri Lanka tsunami in which all proceeds were donated to the victims and her album, “ 19 Classic Hymns,” was released in China and a portion of the proceeds were donated to earthquake victims in 2008. In further recognition of her talent and selfless generosity, Ms. Lane was featured in the first and third editions of Who’s Who in Entertainment and in the first edition of Who’s Who in America: Student Version.
