East Coast country artist joins stellar musical line up.

makayla_lynn-9_(1)(Fredericton, NB) – The 10th annual Maritime Countryfest (MCF) 2015 has just announced up-and-coming East Coast based, Nashville recording artist, Makayla Lynn for event, Saturday, June 20 at Officers’ Square in downtown Fredericton.

Lynn joins an already stellar line up, including chart-topping, multi-platinum selling recording headliner, Johnny Reid, high octane country rockers, The Road Hammers, Grand Ole Opry member and country star, Joe Diffie and lively Kentucky country-folk duo, Sundy Best.

“This being the 10th Annual MCF, our dedication and ambition to make this the most successful country music festival in New Brunswick has never been stronger, said Bobbie O’Donnell, Event Coordinator. “Our mission is simple: For the love of music! It’s honest and true and reflects exactly why we do what we do. Year after year, we work hard to feature an impressive and highly talented list of performers from our region and beyond.”

Barely a teenager, singer-songwriter, guitarist, pianist, Makayla Lynn is already no stranger to performing. Over the past five years, she has shared the stage with some of country music’s top acts, including Carrie Underwood, Alabama, Rascal Flatts, and Tim McGraw and has opened for and performed duets with Serena Ryder, Ricky Skaggs, Chad Brownlee, Kira Isabella, and Dallas Smith.

Lynn has three albums to her credit, including her latest CD, Daydream. Recorded in Nashville, TN and released in June 2014, the album was nominated for two 2015 East Coast Music Awards, including Country Album of the Year, and Rising Star of the Year and she was also nominated for 2014 IMEA Country Album of the Year award and a 2014 Music Nova Scotia award for Country Recording of the Year.

With just a little over a month to go, Maritime Countryfest is gearing up to be one of the best. “We truly feel that the historic Officers’ Square is the most unique venue in New Brunswick; possibly even Atlantic Canada and we work hard to make sure our patrons know that,” added O’Donnell.
