Kelly Lynn is a vocalist, songwriter, and music publisher best known as the wife of the American country music artist, Chris Janson. The 47 year-old mother of four married her 36 year-old husband in 2010 despite being older than him by just over a decade.
Kelly’s husband may not be one of the most prominent artists of the genre but he has come a long way in the music industry and has a lot to be proud of. Chris Janson has released a number of top-selling songs and bodies of work that have increasingly spread his fame across the United States and overseas. His popularity has rubbed off on his wife and has left many people curious about her.
Chris Janson’s Wife is Over 10 Years Older Than Him and was Raised in Coram, New York
Although a lot of things are yet to be learned about Chris Janson’s early life and family background, his career and the fame that came with it have brought many details about his life to light; the same can’t be said about his wife, Kelly Lynn. From who her parents are to the kind of upbringing she had, her siblings, the schools she attended and what have you, many facts about Kelly’s life before she met and subsequently got married to Chris Janson have remained unknown to the public.
Nonetheless, various platforms have reported that she was born and raised in Coram, New York. If these reports are true, then one must as well believe that Kelly is over ten years and a half older than her famous husband. If you check the records, you would easily find that the “Buy Me a Boat” singer was born on the 2nd of April 1986.
According to multiple reports, his wife Kelly Lynn was born over ten years earlier, on the 28th of September 1975. This means she is precisely ten years, six months, and five days older than her husband.
Kelly Lynn Has Been Working in the Music Industry Since 2002
From what we gathered, Kelly Lynn has had a strong passion for music right from when she was a kid. It is said that before she became a teenager, at the age of 12, she had recorded her first song. The song titled “I Believe” was played on dozens of Christian Radio Stations across the United States. Over the years, she has worked with various notable musicians, from Whitney Houston to Gerry Rafferty, Ron Dante, and much more.
Amongst other musical exploits, she has recorded vocals on at least three projects of Walt Disney Records. She would later settle for being an artist and repertoire consultant. After she met Chris Jansons and helped him consolidate on the attention he was getting during the early days of his career, she has been his manager.
Chris Janson Fell in Love with Kelly the First Time He Met Her
It was sometime in 2007 that Chris and Kelly’s paths crossed for the first time. The country singer was studying at Belmont University in Nashville at the time. As the story goes, he saw Kelly Lynn around the Melrose Pool Hall and was immediately taken to her, so much that he was convinced she would become his wife in years to come. He didn’t sit around and dream about the day she would become his wife. Rather, he started scheming for ways to win her love.
When he learned that she was an A&R consultant, Chris booked an appointment with her. They clicked when they met and he capitalized on that: Chris invited Kelly over to his place for a songwriting session and at the end of the day, they were in love.
The massive age gap between them and the fact that Kelly was a divorcee with two kids from her previous marriage didn’t pose any challenge the two couldn’t handle. About three years after they started dating, they were ready to take the relationship to the next level.
The Couple Got Married in July 2010 and Have Two Kids Together
Convinced that they should be together, Chris Janson proposed to Kelly Lynn and on the 4th of July 2010, they officially became a couple. Their union has been thriving since then as they have never had any marital issues that made headlines. As far as the public knows, Chris loves and adores his wife as much as she has been very supportive of his career.
It is said that she nudged him to independently release “Buy Me a Boat” which remains his most successful single. The country artist has appreciated what he shares with Kelly Lynn in several of his songs, including “Holding Her” and “Done”.
As hinted earlier, Lynn had had two kids from her first marriage before she met Jason; a son and a daughter named Graham and Chel. Reports have it that the country singer asked for their permission before he got married to their mother. Apart from Graham and Chel, Kelly has had two other kids with Chris Janson.
Their first is a daughter named Georgia Janson. She has a younger brother named Jesse Bo Janson who was born on the 20th of March 2014. The couple has been quite protective of their kids. This has made it hard to tell anything about them apart from what’s already known.
