Sylvia sings “Nobody” on Larry’s Country Diner
Sylvia Jane Hutton was born on December 9th,1956 in Kokomo, Indiana–a small, simple town in the upper midwest. At the young age of three, she began singing at a local church, launching her passion for music and driving her to Nashville seventeen years later.
Upon her arrival in Music City, Sylvia took a job as a secretary for producer/publisher Tom Collins, best known for producing records for Barbara Mandrell and Ronnie Milsap. In 1979, Sylvia was signed to RCA records as a solo artist and released her first RCA single “You Don’t Miss a Thing.” In the same year, she was named the “Top New Female Vocalist” by the Academy of Country Music (ACM). In 1980, she would claim ACM’s “Female Vocalist of the Year,” and in 1982, after the release of her signature single, “Nobody,” she was named Billboard’s #1 Country Female Artist and received a coveted Grammy nomination. In 1987, after delivering 11 Top-10 songs for RCA, Sylvia departed the label to start her own, Red Pony Records.
Now in her 60’s, Sylvia remains extremely active with a full schedule of tour stops. Her latest album, “Second Bloom: The Hits Re-Imagined” showcases her still-amazing voice and is available on her website (see below). In her spare time, Sylvia works as a certified life and career coach and sits on the board of a non-profit organization that serves and supports people with mental illness and substance abuse.
