Named one of CMT’s “Next Women of Country” (2023), country music’s tiny new powerhouse is a reflection of her generation. 

“I want people to hear my story and connect it to their story,” says MaRynn Taylor, country music’s fast-rising powerhouse vocalist who is on a trajectory to connect with millions of fans. MaRynn Taylor’s upcoming flirty new single, “Make You Mine” is set for a 3/31 release. Co-written by MaRynn, Dan Wilson and GRAMMY-winner Josh Kerr, who also produced the track, “Make You Mine” is going for adds at country radio in May. Her debut EP Something I Would Do is available now.

Her vocal prowess was on full display this winter as the snow-covered rising star led more than 70,000 football fans in singing the national anthem before the NFL’s highly anticipated Bills Vs. Bengals AFC Divisional Playoff Game. Leading into the 2022 holiday season, denim destination and specialty retailer, The Buckle, Inc. (Buckle), announced its new partnership with country music artist, MaRynn Taylor on her Christmas release of “O Come, All Ye Faithful.” The partnership included the outfitting and holiday premiere of her official music video of the holiday classic.

MaRynn’s garnered more than four million cumulative streams and won six Telly Awards. Her 5-song EP, Something I Would Do (Black River), provides a glimpse into the 21-year-old’s world, with each track offering snapshots of her present and past. The radio-ready “Every Single Summer” reflects on a youthful MaRynn spending carefree days on Lake Michigan, playing outside and hanging with friends. WATCH the official music video.

“As an artist and human being, I want my music to inspire and be relatable,” says MaRynn. “Growing up with idols like Carrie and Taylor, I could relate to them. It was as if I could feel their heartaches in the music and as if the stories in their songs reflected mine. Today, that’s what I want to give to my fans.” She eventually moved to Nashville, where a chance encounter at the 2019 CMA Music Festival gave her the break she needed—an impromptu performance after Black River Entertainment’s 60 Second Spotlight event had already closed for the day. MaRynn says she spent the next few months in “music summer camp,” learning about songwriting and recording music for the first time in a professional recording studio.

MaRynn is excited to get out on the road and share these songs that are so close to her heart with fans and hear their personal stories, too. “I genuinely care about people and their feelings. I’m a good listener and want to be there for people. There’s not enough of that in the world right now.” Today, MaRynn Taylor is no longer the little girl dreaming on the front porch; she is the voice ready to inspire a generation.
