Mackenzie Wasner is an up-and-coming country music artist who is turning heads with powerhouse vocals that are both fresh and somehow classic, evoking the sound of greats like Dolly Parton. A “homegrown” singer/songwriter, Mackenzie is from historic Leipers Fork, Tennessee, just south of Nashville. She was born and raised in the world of country music thanks to her father Pete Wasner, who is Vince Gill’s pianist of over 30 years and a singer/songwriter himself. At just 14, Mackenzie sang alongside Gill at The Mother Church of Country Music, the Ryman Auditorium. At age 17, the judges on Season 12 of American Idol lauded her “star power” and “gorgeous” voice as they unanimously sent her to Hollywood. A seasoned live performer, Mackenzie has opened for Amy Grant, Jodee Messina and Vince Gill, among others. She is currently crafting new songs, playing shows in the southeast and pursuing her dream to become a country music recording artist. Mackenzie feels truly blessed by all of the great opportunities she has enjoyed to this point, and is excited to see what the future holds!
