Not knowing who you want to be is a normal part of growing up. Sometimes you have to search again and again to find your voice and who you are. Most importantly, being confident enough at a young age to keep pushing yourself and having the drive to succeed and work hard is why Jaclyn Kenyon is poised to make a real impact in Music.

With influence from such legends as Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood, Michael Jackson, and excited about such newer young female artists like Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini, Carly Pearce, “A little Rock n’ Roll and A LOT Country” is what you can see and feel just by meeting this 20-year-old Ontario native, who has been going back and forth to Nashville since she was a teenager.

Always a strong performer, Jaclyn has been on the stage since the age of 12, when she was the youngest performer ever in Canada’s all-female artist showcase Honey Jam, competing against artists twice her age. This prestigious showcase, Canada’s largest and best known, had launched the careers of Nelly Furtado and Jully Black.

At 15 years old Jaclyn caught the eye of world-renowned vocal coach and multi-platinum producer “Mama” Jan Smith who immediately saw her raw talent. “Jaclyn, as a writer, I believe she can write for anybody,” Mama Jan said of Jaclyn, “Stylistically, she really doesn’t have a lot of limits, which is awesome.”

After that Jaclyn was fortunate enough to learn more about herself as an artist with multi-platinum writers and producers in Nashville and Los Angeles where she spent time trying to find what inspires her

“People have always had me try and sing different styles, whether it was Country, Rock or Pop. I’ve always gone along and tried every idea to find my voice. I’ve even had producers make me sing ‘hard rock’ “, says Jaclyn recanting some of the musical adventures she went through as a teenager, “One producer kept telling me to lose my ‘country twang’ in my voice and I didn’t realize that was just a natural part of me.

Jaclyn’s first single off her upcoming EP, “Daddy’s Got A Shotgun,” was Produced by Mike Krompass and co-written with Nashville luminaries Clay Mills and Steve Diamond.

In addition, Jaclyn has been writing in Nashville with Producer Mike Krompass, and writers Robbie Nevil, Rich Redmond.

Said of her brand new song ‘Daddy’s Got A Shotgun’, ”This is a cute fun song I wrote about an overprotective father, …no matter how old you are you’re always gonna be your daddy’s little girl, right?

Jaclyn is getting ready for what’s next, “With the great fans I’ve been building, I’ll be able to play live more often than I thought” Said an excited Jaclyn “ I’ll let you know when I play next. Please keep listening and sharing my music”

Cam and Alicia Keys to Perform “Girl Crush” Tonight on the ACM Honors Awards

Tune in to watch one of the must-see and most talked about performances of the night…Grammy nominated Cam, and multi-platinum recording artist Alicia Keys performing “Girl Crush” as a mark of respect to the nights’ Crystal Milestone Award winners Little Big Town.
“Girl Crush”, written by Lori McKenna, Hillary Lindsey and Liz Rose and recorded by Grammy award winning country artists Little Big Town caused quite the controversy when the song was released late 2014 for its perceived provocative lyrics.   The track went on to receive numerous awards for the band and its songwriters, including two CMA’s, two Grammys and a CMT Award and has sold more than 3 million copies to date.
“That was one of the most magical moments I’ve had on stage, and of course it was at the Ryman!” said Cam. “Alicia is so insanely talented and such a gracious person to work with. We both felt so honored to be celebrating Little Big Town together.” With Cam on guitar and Alicia on piano, the duo delivered a mind-blowing performance that received one of the biggest and loudest standing ovations of the evening.
The two girls also have a lot more in common than one would think, including: both have worked with Jeff Bhasker, last years recipient of the ‘Producer of the Year’ Grammy award. Bhasker is Cam’s executive producer and co-writer of her break-out hit “Burning House” and most noticeably, Alicia’s co-producer and co-writer of “Girl on Fire”, amongst others; both girls are also Sony label mates.
