Born and raised among the dairy farms of Upstate New York, singer/songwriter Cassidy Lynn was always getting caught day dreaming about country music over the peeks of the rolling hills in the distance. She started singing not long after she began to talk and gave her first public performance at age nine singing classic country favorites such as Loretta Lynn’s “Coalminer’s Daughter,” Patsy Cline’s “Crazy,” and yodeling along to Patsy Montana’s “Cowboy’s Sweetheart.” Not long after, she earned herself an invite to open for Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member Charley Pride at the Cortland Country Music Park in Cortland, NY.
By age sixteen, Cassidy’s constant pursuit of music landed her in a popular local band as lead singer. It was then that she began touring across New York State and teaching herself to play the acoustic guitar. Cassidy and the group quickly becoming the “it” band in Upstate opening for countless national acts such as Emerson Drive, Jason Michael Carroll, Ashton Shepherd, John Michael Montgomery and Bryan White (their duet can be seen under the “Media” tab) among others and giving live radio interviews across the state. Just months before making the move to Nashville with an incredible fan base intact, Cassidy co-wrote a song inspired by her family and their summer cottage on the lake with late Nashville songwriter Larry Wayne Clark called “Down by the Bonfire” whose music video was featured on GAC (Great American Country) and CMT (Country Music Television).
Since relocating to Music City in 2008 and getting her Bachelor’s degree in Music Business at Belmont University, Cassidy has had the humbling opportunity of playing the Ryman Auditorium, closing Riverfront stage at CMA Fest, appearing more than a handful of times at the Bluebird Café and writing with some of the most highly esteemed songwriters in town. It was her passion for singing and performing that initially brought Cassidy to Nashville and it wasn’t until she arrived there that she began songwriting. She has since fallen in love with the craft and has developed a truly unique “voice” as a writer. As one Nashville publisher described her, “She writes and sings like a country artist from almost a different plane of existence that found a way to evolve correctly.”
In 2012, Cassidy won CMT’s Listener’s Choice Award through NSAI’s Song Contest and was featured on BMI's annual Catalog Cast Comp that goes out to every publisher and record label in town. Cassidy released her self-titled debut EP in July of 2013 and was a co-writer on Black River Entertainment Recording Artist Glen Templeton’s debut single “Ball Cap” which spent two weeks in the #1 spot on SiriusXM, The Highway in January of 2014! A couple short months later, she signed an exclusive publishing deal with Given Music Publishing on Music Row. She is writing songs with some of the best in the business on a daily basis, recording regularly and performing every chance she gets. Cassidy says it feels as though her dreams are truly beginning to unfold but that she’ll simply always be a writer and singer of songs, lover of people, anything old school, cheap wine and Waylon Jennings.
