About Kelly Lang:
Kelly Lang is a prolific singer/songwriter from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, who has called Hendersonville, Tennessee home since moving there as a child. Growing up in country music, her father, Velton Lang was the long time road manager for superstar, Conway Twitty. Being around great legends in the music business gave Kelly the burning desire to pursue her own personal music career.
As a songwriter, Lang has had a stellar career with her songs being recorded by artists such as Ricky Skaggs, Lorrie Morgan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Crystal Gayle, George Jones, B.J. Thomas, Jimmy Fortune, Jerry Lee Lewis, TG Sheppard, and Johnny Lee, just to name a few.
She has also performed/recorded duets with iconic artists, Sir Barry Gibb, Dame Olivia Newton-John, Paul Shaffer, and Lee Greenwood.
As an artist, Lang has released several albums including ‘11:11,’ ‘Shades of K,’ ‘Throwback,’ ‘Obsession’, and ‘Iconic Duets’ with husband, TG Sheppard. In the spring of 2020, Lang re-released her classic children’s album ‘Lullaby Country,’ which was originally sold at Cracker Barrel.
As part of a regional campaign, her voice and writing skills can be heard on television with her song “I’m Not Going Anywhere” throughout Tennessee and the surrounding areas as the official anthem for the Ascension St. Thomas Hospital commercial.
About The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame:
More than 100 of the world’s most famous musicians, artists, and songwriters have the distinct honor of being inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.
It’s fitting that this relatively small state serves as home for the Music Hall of Fame. Why? Oklahoma’s roots are firmly planted in rich musical history, and the state has produced dozens of notable talents whose gifts and musical styles are as breathtaking and diverse as the Oklahoma landscape.
Inductees include acclaimed musicians, singers, songwriters, and performers like Woody Guthrie, Vince Gill, Carrie Underwood, Kristin Chenoweth, Bob Wills, Leona Mitchell, Hank Thompson, David Gates, and many more. Each inductee calls Oklahoma home and, in 1996, the Oklahoma Legislature created the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame to educate and entertain generations about this musical legacy. Perhaps, for obvious reasons, Muskogee was designated as home of the facility, in a nod to Merle Haggard, also an inductee, who put the place on the map with his Okie from Muskogee.
Considering the outstanding lifetime achievements of talented Oklahoma musicians, we can also appreciate the contribution they make to the quality of life for Oklahomans and everyone across the globe.
The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame hosts induction ceremonies and concerts and serves as an icon in the state and beyond for music lovers of all genres. In short, Oklahomans have had a profound impact on the world’s music culture.
