Early life[edit]

Born Rachele Lynae Wurm in 1988 to Robert J. Wurm, a commercial fisherman, and Alicia Ann Wurm in Yuba City, California,[4] Lynae was raised in Kodiak, Alaska, and Lynden, Washington, where she attended Lynden Christian Schools.[5] Her sister, Heather Cole, is also a singer.[5][6] Rachele attended Belmont University.

Lynae began singing in church choir at the age of five. She began writing songs at age 12.[7] Early musical influences include LeAnn Rimes, Reba McEntire and Shania Twain.[8]


In 2012 Rachele Lynae signed with Momentum Label Group of Nashville, Tennessee. At the end of her senior year at Belmont University, Rachele Lynae recorded a five-song EP. After sharing the EP with now-manager Jimmy Murphy, Lynae was introduced to Jamie O'Neal, Murphy's daughter.[5]

Working with Jamie O'Neal, Stephanie Bentley, and producer Jimmy Murphy, Rachele co-wrote and recorded "Party 'Til the Cows Come Home", a country party anthem.[9] The music video was directed by multi award-winning director Trey Fanjoy.[1][10]

In 2012, Lynae and Jamie O'Neal released a duet of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" as a holiday single and video, which was subsequently featured in People Magazine's Country Special Issue's Holiday Playlist.[11] She was also listed in Nashville Lifestyles’ Top 20 Musicians to Watch.[12]

Lynae's 2013 single, "Fishin' For Something" was very well received at country radio, and topped the Renegade Radio/Nashville.com Chart in August.[13] Earlier that same year, Lynae was invited to become an honorary “Friends and Family” member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.[14]

O'Neal produced Lynae's debut album "Rachele Lynae" (released on April 22, 2014), which includes her most current single, "Touch The Stars," released on February 18, 2014.[15] "Touch The Stars" is receiving airplay at Sirius XM Radio's country channel, The Highway.

Lynae has opened for such legendary artists as Wynonna Judd[16] and Leon Russell.[17] She has played at famed Nashville's local bar Tootsie's Orchid Lounge and made five appearances at Nashville's 2012 Country Music Awards events, including one acoustic performance and several autograph signings.[7]
