McKenzie Jones is a Freshman at Angelo State University, born
and raised Llano, Texas. Her story began as a little girl in a poodle
skirt on stage with Fabian Forte.
That twist lit a fire in her that still burns.
Growing up in a small town has planted
her roots firmly in Americana, and deep
in the mountain music of her idols:
Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, & Tanya
Tucker. Her love for music has grown as she
has, coming to love rock-n-roll, folk, and
musical theater. Since the age of 9, she has
made the Texas Opry circuit, and has performed
in Branson, Nashville, Pigeon Forge, &
Gatlinburg. McKenzie has opened for many legends, including Neal McCoy, "Whispering" Bill Anderson,
Jody Miller, Stonewall Jackson, and The Bellamy Brothers.
She is #2 on Wiles Magazine's 2015 list of the top independent artists in the world, and is one of the best at performing our Nation's most beloved song. Her National Anthem rivals that of seasoned musicians, and has taken her to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, the San Antonio Live Stock Show & Rodeo, Rodeo Austin, P.R.C.A. events, and Dell Diamond.
She is currently writing original music with Debby Throckmorton in Nashville, TN, and working on her debut CD, produced by Chris Pelcer.
