Country hitmaker Sylvia has captivated audiences for decades with signature songs like her multi-platinum crossover smash, “Nobody,” and the number one hit “Drifter,” which both propelled her to stardom in the 80’s, helping her win the coveted ACM award for “Female Vocalist of the Year.” The acclaimed singer/songwriter is pleased to announce that she has signed an exclusive agreement with Nashville based, ArtistLive Agency for booking representation. Sylvia and her team will work closely with ArtistLive Agency’s president, Deric Brown for future shows and appearances. “I’m very excited to be on this team and work with such a class act,” said Brown.
“I’m thrilled to be working with Deric Brown and ArtistLive for concert bookings,” said Sylvia. “We share a real passion for getting me out there on tour to promote my new album, It’s All in the Family and to breathe life into my music from the RCA days like ‘Drifter,’ ‘Snapshot,’ and ‘Nobody.’ I’m loving being back out on the road and seeing the fans! ArtistLive is taking our touring to the next level!”
Sylvia is hitting the road in support of her latest album It’s All In The Family, which was released in late 2016. Upon its release, the project was met with high critical-acclaim, securing features in The Huffington Post and Southern Living, marking the powerhouse vocalist’s return to county music. It’s All in the Family is Sylvia’s first album on which she co-wrote the majority of the 12 all-new songs.

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 albums and garnered a total of 13 Top Ten and No. 1 songs, selling over 4 million records. In 1982, Sylvia was named “Female Vocalist of the Year” by the Academy of Country Music and was a Grammy nominee in the “Best Female Country Vocal Performance” category in 1983. Over an 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 the Country Music Awards. Today, Sylvia records for her own independent record label, Red Pony Records and has released three CDs, “The Real Story” (1996), “Where In The World” (2002), and “A Cradle In Bethlehem” (2002).
