I am proud to be a West Virginia country girl who loves God and family. I have loved to perform for as long as I can remember and started singing publicly at the age of 7. I am happiest when I am singing. I have been inspired by many amazing singers including Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Reba McIntyre.
I currently sing across West Virginia at various talent shows, fairs, festivals and restaurants. I am taking vocal lessons from Janine LeClair of Music Row Voice in Nashville, TN and guitar lessons from Ron Sowell in Charleston, WV.
I have recently started writing my own songs and expressing my feelings through music. In my musical journey I have been blessed with many wonderful opportunities and made great friends.
I was honored to able to sing on the TV show Nashville Spotlight and meet Mike Jennings and many young singers. I was able to sing during CMA MusicFest with the Nashville Spotlight family in the summer of 2016.
I just released my first EP titled, "Playin with the big girls" with the help of producer Jack Mollette in Pigeon Forge. I am planning on releasing a full length CD, of all original music, in the summer of 2017.
I have been blessed by having the love and support from many friends and family who have encouraged me on my musical journey.
I love you all and appreciate all that you continue to do for me. God bless you all.
"Makenna is one of the hardest working young talents I've ever met! Her drive and work ethic coupled with her enthusiasm and natural talents, make her in a category all on her own! She can bounce her vocals from angelic ballads to an upbeat yodel. I truly believe that only the sky is the limit for this vocalist! It's been a thrill to work with Makenna and I'm proud to be her coach!"
