Nashville, Tenn., October 3: Black River's MaRynn Taylor continues to make her mark in Country music as the rising songwriter and artist enters the Mediabase Country and Billboard Country Airplay charts this week with her current single "Make You Mine" at No. 46 & No. 58 respectively. Taylor furthers her partnership with the Alzheimer's Association with the announcement that she is set to perform and walk in the 2023 Walk to End Alzheimer's at Nissan Stadium. Moved by a personal connection, the Alzheimer's Association Celebrity Champion has revealed that she is set to release a new track inspired by her grandparents. "i love you, remember" is slated for a Friday, Oct. 27 release on Black River, with a portion of the song's proceeds being donated to the cause.
Taylor—who is slated to perform at the Opry Plaza Celebration this Saturday, Oct. 7— continues to make a name for herself in country music with her first charting single, upbeat anthem "Make You Mine." This week, she secured her first career Top 50 hit at Country radio on the Mediabase Country chart, reaching No. 46 and breaking into the Top 60 at No. 58 on the Billboard Country chart — a milestone achievement for Taylor.
The decision to create Team MaRynn Taylor and join the Walk to End Alzheimer's was a natural next step for the rising country music star, who has been impacted first-hand as both of her grandparents are living with the devastating disease. She is beginning the day with a performance of the emotional "i love you, remember," and then will kick off her heels and slip on her sneakers to join the crowd for the mile-long Walk to End Alzheimer's.
"My grandma taught me how to whistle, and my grandpa taught me how to bait a worm on a hook," said Taylor. "I hold those memories, big or small, so closely because the day I knew my grandparents weren’t able to keep holding onto them anymore was also the day I started remembering for them."
The CMT’s “Next Women of Country” (2023) artist and songwriter continued, "I know I’m not the only grandchild going through the pain of watching my loved ones forget me — and that’s why I’m not only doing this for my grandparents but for anyone impacted by Alzheimer’s."
This past summer, MaRynn Taylor became an Alzheimer's Association Celebrity Champion to use her voice and platform in the fight against Alzheimer's and all other dementia. Taylor looks forward to the impact of her increased efforts and support for the Association.

Co-written by the "female powerhouse" (Country Now) with Emily Kroll and Black River Publishing's Jason Earley, "i love you, remember" is produced by GRAMMY-winning producer Josh Kerr. The moving ballad shines a much-needed light on the battles faced every day when a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. A tribute to her grandparents, "i love you, remember" is more than just a song to the budding country star – it is deeply personal and she hopes anyone impacted by this unrelenting disease may relate to it and find peace and resolve within the song.

ABOUT MaRYNN TAYLOR
Named one of CMT’s “Next Women of Country” (2023), MaRynn Taylor — the promising star in the making with more than 11 million cumulative streams and 12 Telly Awards under her belt — is a reflection of her generation. “I want people to hear my story and connect it to their story,” says MaRynn. Country music’s fast-rising powerhouse vocalist made her Grand Ole Opry debut on June 23, 2023, and returned to the coveted stage only weeks later for a second performance. The same day of her debut, she released her track, '01, a heartfelt apology to her younger self and a reminder for today to tap into the fearlessness, knowingness, freedom, and open heart of her youth. Produced by GRAMMY-winner Josh Kerr, fans can watch the precious lyric video featuring her animated drawings HERE. Her flirty single, “Make You Mine” entered the Top 50 and Top 60 on both the Mediabase Country and Billboard Country Airplay charts respectively on October 2, 2023. With nearly two million streams for the track and milestone performances on the horizon, MaRynn is only heating up. The Alzheimer's Association Celebrity Champion's latest offering, the upbeat "Shakin' In My Boots," and accompanying music video encompass that indescribable feeling of being in love and the undeniable happiness that comes along with it. 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. 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. “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.
