Sylvia Celebrates 35th Anniversary of No. 1 Hit “Nobody” With Appearances at the Grand Ole Opry and More!

Chart-Topper Reflects on Career in Online Video Series “The View From Here

NASHVILLE, TENN.
– This year marks the 35th anniversary of Sylvia’s No. 1 smash
crossover hit “Nobody,” which dominated the country music charts,
leading the acclaimed singer to win the ACM award for “Female Vocalist
of the Year.” The chart-topping vocalist shows no signs of slowing down
anytime soon, as she returns to the legendary Grand Ole Opry this
Saturday for another uplifting performance (purchase tickets HERE).





“I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of
‘Nobody’ topping the charts than to perform it on the Grand Ole Opry,”
says Sylvia. “I’ve been listening to the Opry my whole life. In fact, my
earliest memory of listening to the Opry was during a road trip from
Kokomo, Indiana to Lafayette, Tennessee on a Friday night to visit my
grandparents. It makes me wonder what little child might be out there
listening this Saturday night dreaming of someday standing on that
stage…”


After high school graduation, Sylvia moved to Nashville to realize
her dream of becoming a recording artist and in a few short years signed
with RCA Records. The rest is history! Sylvia is detailing her full
career journey on her web series “Sylvia: The View From Here,” produced
by The Nashville Soundbite. In the latest episode, the songstress opens
up about her early career when she auditioned for the part of Daisy Duke
in the hit series “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Even though ultimately she
didn’t get the part, the story came full circle when Daisy Duke actress
Catherine Bach was the presenter the year Sylvia picked up the award for
“Female Vocalist of the Year” at the ACM Awards. Fans can watch the
latest episodes, and past videos HERE.

On her latest album It’s All In The Family, Sylvia expanded
her horizons as a songwriter, co-writing 9 of the 12 songs on the
record. The singer/songwriter is returning to east Tennessee on
Saturday, August 19th for a 4:00p matinee show at the Sixth Annual Smoky
Mountains Songwriters Festival in Gatlinburg, TN. In addition to
singing the hits, Sylvia will take attendees on a musical journey into
the heart of her new album, exploring life’s challenges and joys, and
the growth that she – and they – have experienced along the way. Tickets
are available HERE.

About Sylvia:
With the release of Sylvia’s second RCA album, Just Sylvia,
the single “Nobody” sold two million copies and was #1 on all country
music charts. It was awarded BMI “Song of the Year” for receiving the
most radio airplay in 1983. “Nobody” also reached #13 as a crossover hit
on Billboard’s Top 100 chart and spent a total of 52 weeks on both
charts. Recording for RCA until the end of 1987, Sylvia recorded six

eight-year period, Sylvia crisscrossed America many times with her
popular concert performances (over 200 per year), and she was a frequent
guest on network television talk shows and specials – from The Today
Show and Good Morning, America to Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, and
