MaRynn Taylor

Black River Entertainment artist/songwriter, MaRynn Taylor first met her label family during CMA Fest as Black River held their first-ever 60 Second Spotlight, a performance opportunity for aspiring musicians, songwriters and music lovers to perform for 60 seconds in front of Black River’s executive staff. Only a few days shy of 18, MaRynn Taylor and her mom made their way to the booth just as it had closed at the end of the first day. Although MaRynn wasn’t old enough to officially participate in the 60 Second Spotlight, she took the opportunity to visit with the staff of Black River for a few minutes and was ultimately invited to play a song as she was sitting on the stage. That chance meeting led to several follow up conversations. Five months later, Taylor signed her recording and publishing deals on November 13, 2019, while in the middle of a live interview on the legendary 650 AM WSM radio’s Coffee, Country and Cody, the morning of the 53rd Annual CMA Awards. With music set to be released in 2020, the Rockford, Michigan native feels at home creating music in her new city. “I left my life in Michigan to chase my dream in Nashville and never would have thought that I’d find my Nashville family so perfectly in Black River,” shared Taylor.
