Whatever Happened To…Sylvia
So yesterday got me thinking about all the great country artists out there that we never hear anything about anymore...some of them one hit wonders...others had some pretty prosperous careers. So....I thought wouldn't it be fun to see if I could find out about what they are doing now?
Today let's talk about Sylvia...the original one named female vocalist you remember her...
Sylvia is best known for her hit "Nobody", which reached #15 Pop and #1 Country in 1982. The song earned her a gold record certification and a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female Country Vocal Performance (the Grammy went to Juice Newton for her hit "Break It to Me Gently"). Although "Nobody" was Sylvia's only single to reach the Billboard pop charts, her other big country hits include "Drifter" (#1 Country, 1981), "Fallin' in Love", "Tumbleweed" and "Snapshot". In 1982, she was named Female Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music. She is also credited with making the first "concept" music video clip to air on Country Music Television (CMT), with "The Matador".
But what is she doing now? Well not much as far as I can find anyway...other than living in Nashville & being a lifecoach for up & coming individuals working in the music industry – singers, songwriters, musicians, recording artists, and music industry professionals. She also coaches people who work at non-profit agencies. She is currently married with the name Sylvia Hutton and lives in the Nashville, TN area.
