SHELBY LYNNE: Country's greatest semi-famous torch singer has lately devoted herself to reinterpreting the Dusty Springfield songbook, and the project -- captured on her album "Just a Little Lovin'," soon to be on year-end top 10 lists everywhere -- has revitalized her. She's not always consistent live, but reports from her recent tour bode well: This country outsider is poised and determined to dominate any stage she's given. (Tundra, 5:05-5:55 p.m.)

Eric Church , Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan will headline the 2014 Stagecoach Country Music Festival in Indio, festival organizers announced Thursday. They top the three-day bill scheduled for April 25-27 that's heavy on freshmen and sophomore country acts including Hunter Hayes, Brantley Gilbert, Easton Corbin, Florida Georgia Line, Lee Brice and Dustin Lynch. But deeper into the lineup, which will be spread across three stages, are veterans such as Loretta Lynn, John Prine, Brenda Lee, Michael Nesmith, Asleep at the Wheel, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Duane Eddy, Shelby Lynne and Crystal Gayle, who is Loretta Lynn's sister.

Is Shelby Lynne eligible to win the best new artist Grammy again? Well, no. But given that her best new artist award in 2000 marked not the start but the renewal of her career -- she'd been a country recording artist for a decade before getting the honor for her rootsy reemergence on the "I Am Shelby Lynne" album -- Grammy voters may have to consider her again. Her new album constitutes a similar fresh start and an even more personal statement.

Phil Ramone, the veteran record producer whose work with A-list artists including Barbra Streisand, Bob Dylan and Paul Simon made him one of the most respected figures in the music industry, died Saturday at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Billboard reported. He was 79. Ramone was hospitalized last month following an aortic aneurysm. Born in South Africa, Ramone studied classical violin at New York's Juilliard School before moving behind the board. His extensive credits include Dylan's "Blood on the Tracks," Billy Joel's "52nd Street" and Paul Simon's "Still Crazy After All These Years," for which he shared the Grammy Award for album of the year.

If Shelby Lynne's victory in the Grammys' best new artist competition last week makes you want to check out the Alabama-bred singer-songwriter, proceed with caution in the record store. The album you want is "I Am Shelby Lynne," her 2000 collection on Island Records that earned her the Grammy. It's an uncompromising work that speaks about romantic turmoil with a naked candor that is rare in contemporary pop.

Last year around this time, the critics were falling all over singer-songwriter Shelby Lynne. They marveled as she bared her ragged country soul on her bluesy, minimalist sixth album, "I Am Shelby Lynne," which earned her a somewhat incongruous--given her long career--best new artist Grammy Award.

Anyone who has read one of the flurry of rave reviews for singer-songwriter Shelby Lynne's new album knew Friday at the House of Blues to expect a touch of the sensual persuasion of Dusty Springfield and the desperate vulnerability of Janis Joplin. But whoever imagined that the connection everyone would be marveling about afterward would be the primal-scream fury of John Lennon?

SHELBY LYNNE, hiding behind vintage sunglasses and a casual sneer, slumped back against a bus-stop bench on Sunset Boulevard and checked her cellphone one more time. Lynne's manager was still fighting cross-town traffic and the singer was overdue for a lunchtime appointment with a pitcher of margaritas. "You'll like me better after a couple of drinks," the country singer said to the journalist sharing the bench. "After a few, I'll say anything." Lynne likes to have fun with her reputation.

Shelby Lynne, 20, is a brassy young newcomer out of Alabama who, on her second album, confirms her position as a sort of country Whitney Houston. She's got a set of pipes that could crush granite, but except for three canny remakes, she wastes them pulverizing musical marshmallows.

For the second or two that it takes for a presenter to read her name during the best new artist presentation at the Grammys on Wednesday, Shelby Lynne will be center stage in the pop world. If she wins, the exposure will go well beyond the few minutes we'll watch her step onstage and accept the award. The victory could set in motion the events that might truly make her pop's latest Cinderella story.

"I was just moved by Amy Winehouse and the music [on 'Back to Black']. I think she has best new artist locked up and maybe album of the year. . . . With everything that's been going on with her, I don't know what to think. I'm worried about her. Part of me likes some of the crazy stuff -- it's so rock 'n' roll, you know? But where are the people that are supposed to be watching out for her?" -- Shelby Lynne, best new artist Grammy winner, 2000 "The only really interesting artist who broke out in 2007 was Amy Winehouse.

You could look at the life of Ringo Starr and think: This guy has been so insanely lucky they should call him Lotto instead of Ringo. But, really, after watching the ongoing orgy of ego and self-destruction among today's young celebs, I think we all should thank the old bloke for wearing his fame and success so classily for 45 years. The oldest Beatle (and music pal Dave Stewart) will play the House of Blues this Friday at 1 p.m. The show is free but it won't be easy to get in. Fans should line up beginning at 9 a.m. More details at www.ringostarr.com which will also stream the show live.

Covers albums have become the easy road back for many singers who have faded from public view: Take songs many people know, apply a voice familiar from other contexts and you have a passable formula for success. Grammy winner and rebel country star Shelby Lynne isn't one to take it easy, however, as she proved Tuesday at the Ivar Theatre in Hollywood.

Shelby Lynne is half an hour late for an interview, but she doesn't bother to offer an explanation. She simply flops into a chair on the hotel patio and orders a beer. She probably figures that in the grand scheme of things, she's the one who deserves an apology. For more than a dozen years, she has been denied her rightful appointment with stardom.
