McKenzie Jones is a 15 year old from Llano, Texas.
Born in 2003, her dreams of bright lights 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. 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.
A message from McKenzie:
I am currently under the tutelage of Nine Muses Studios in Austin, TX,
as well as Renee-Grant Williams & Christy Sutherland in Nashville, TN.
I show goats in 4-H and I am an active member of the
First Baptist Church Youth Praise Band.
I live to sing, and I love to entertain.
Follow me on my journey.
