“I grew up listening to country music and recordings from Dolly Parton to Patsy Cline. The simplicity of the lyrics and the characters of the artists who translated the music of yesteryear just hit home and Nashville feels like home! The event such as CMA Fest help to ‘break’ artists to become legends; the opportunity to perform is a dream come true,” Mags said.
Mags’ passion fuels each and every performance. She captivates her audiences with impressive and expressive vocals and spitfire energy. Mags recently celebrated the release of her new country breakout single, “Strong Enough;” she is prepared to formally introduce the track LIVE before the country music enthusiasts attending the annual country music festival.
