Check out her bio (taken from her website) below and then watch our full conversation. I know you will adore her as much as Center Stage Magazine does.

“Jordyn Mallory was born April 4, 1992, in the small town of Okolona, Mississippi, population 3,000.  Although Jordyn has now made the move to Nashville, Tennessee, you can throw rocks at her home in Mississippi from the historic Natchez Trace.  At just five years old, Jordyn had her first solo in a Christmas play.  After that, she started singing in church, talent shows, festivals, and fairs.  Jordyn remembers back to the day she wrote her first song.  Her mom had left to go to the grocery store and by the time she returned, Jordyn was ready to sing it for her.  Missy, her mom, thought it was funny and laughed it off, never thinking that it would lead to what Jordyn would hope to do for the rest of her life.  That one song led to many, many more.  She eventually picked up the guitar and considers it her main instrument now but she also dabbles in piano.  When Jordyn was an impatient freshman in high school, she presented a plan to her parents to graduate one year early.  She went on to take extra classes during the school year and summer and graduated with special honors in 2009 with the class ahead of her.  Jordyn has had the honor of opening concerts for Loretta Lynn, Crystal Gayle, Jake Owen, Eric Church, Emerson Drive, Ashton Shephard, Colt Ford and many more.  You can also look for her in Jason Aldean's music video for his hit song "Dirt Road Anthem".  In 2010, Jordyn won a Myspace contest to be a guest cast member on Simon Fuller's "If I Can Dream" show that aired on  Later, she auditioned for American Idol Season 11 and was shown on national television getting 3 yeses from Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson, and Jennifer Lopez to go to Hollywood. She went on to make the top 98 on the show.  Recently, Jordyn wrote a song with Kip Moore and Dan Couch that Kip sang with Jewel at the famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. With a major publishing deal under her belt, she has been working relentlessly to write great songs and has had the opportunity to write and work with some of Nashville's top songwriters.  Jordyn has new projects and new music she's been working on and is excited to share them in the upcoming months. Stay tuned!”

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
