Hello Everyone, first off Happy New Year to everyone! Here’s to a Healthy Happy 2017 to all! I decided to give you an inside look at what inspired me to write a song, and how the song came about. My plan is to do this each month on a different song, so today I have chosen the song “Songs of Yesterday.”
“Songs of Yesterday” was the second song that I wrote when I started this journey back in 2014. To date this song remains the all time favorite among the many fans of my music. The thoughts behind this song are, looking back to spending time with family, sharing the love of music together. It’s not that I lived what the lyrics are in this song, but while writing this song I was able to visualize it, so the words came freely to tell the story.
I have always been inspired by the songs recorded by George Strait, George Jones as well as many other Traditional Country Legends. So decided to include George Strait being he’s always been my all time favorite country singing artist.
I entered Songs of Yesterday into “The Great American Songwriting Competition” in Portland, OR and became a finalist in the 2015 competition. The judges encouraged me to continue on with my songwriting, as they felt I had a gift for songwriting. So these few words of encouragement have kept this journey going.
I truly feel that as long as this little voice inside my head keeps telling me, “Don’t stop, you’ve got more lives to touch and more love to share.” I will continue on with this chapter of my life, and must say it has been one awesome ride! From all the wonderful people I have met along the way!
I hope that you will continue on supporting my music, and I will be adding more songs this year so hope that you will continue on checking in from time to time, please join me on Twitter at @sheri_lynn95252 for the latest updates or here on my web page.

With Love, Sheri Lynn
