Early life[edit]

Born Rachele Lynae Wurm in 1988 to Robert J.

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]

Career[edit]

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]

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.
