Written by MaRynn alongside Ava Suppelsa and Dan Wilson, and produced by Kerr, the track is featured in the highly-anticipated Country Star app, available now for download HERE. Her 5-song EP, Something I Would Do (Black River), provides a glimpse into the 22-year-old’s world, with each track offering snapshots of her present and past. The water-ready “Every Single Summer” and its accompanying official music video reflect on a youthful MaRynn spending carefree days on Lake Michigan, playing outside and hanging with friends. MaRynn’s vocal prowess was on full display last 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 with her Christmas release of “O Come, All Ye Faithful.” “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 rela
te 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.
