Tough All Over

A lifetime of ups and downs helps 'Bama songbird Shelby Lynne craft a stunning Southern pop masterpiece

"It's hard no matter what," she says of songwriting. "Really hard. I think the songs write themselves in the time that they're supposed to fall on the paper. I don't worry about it too much, 'cause whatever happens, happens.

"But the songwriting thing, that's just a magical moment that happens at the right time. If I have an idea, I'll fool around with it, but if I don't, I'm not gonna sit down and try to think up one. I've got too much to do for that."

The defiant one, Shelby Lynne: "I said, 'Screw this trying to get on the radio stuff. I might as well make a record I like.'"
