Weekly News Update: November 5, 2017

I’m doing better than I ever was, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s still learning the lyrics to “Call It What You Want“, we’re still in awe of the amazing lyrics of this song. Let’s see what happened this past week and, let’s be real here, what’s going to happen THIS week.

  • On October 30, The CW’s show Supergirl featured Liz Huett’s STFU & Hold Me single during the Girl’s Night scene at Kara’s. It’s playing on the background. No, it never gets to the chorus 😉
  • Mallary Hope‘s self-titled EP is out now. She is now leaning more for inspirational gospel. I wish her the best, even if it’s not my kind of music.

Happy birthday, Mallary Hope! 🙂

Mallary Hope is a very talented singer/songwriter and an amazing person that has made my trip to Nashville worthwhile. She was the first person I ever met in Nashville. It was my first CMA Fest back in 2011, I walked down Broadway where they were doing this event of meeting a star on the bus. Up next was Mallary Hope… who I had befriended in Twitter. And so, I got in line and was the first person to meet her. Here’s the original post from The Nashville Diaries back in 2011.

In honor of her birthday, I’m going to highlight one of her newest songs and my current favorite (they’re in a rotation) from her Showcase: Six Days of new Mallary Hope music.

Hello, country music fans.

About a week ago, the talented and beautiful Mallary Hope asked out of the blue if we would like her to reveal a new song for every day for the next six days. Needless to say, everyone of her fans said yes to the songstress from Cohutta.

If you haven’t been paying attention, she’s a brilliant songwriter whose style continues to evolve and grow from the traditionally romantic to the kick-ass country without missing a beat.

Here are six new official unreleased tracks from Mallary’s official Soundcloud account.

Review Corner: Mallary Hope brings us Closure

Hello, country music fans.

It has been a while since we have checked with the talented and beautiful Mallary Hope. She has a new amazing song out in her official Soundcloud account called “Closure”. Mallary has kept evolving her musical style and this last offering shows it. This track sounds like a hit single which makes me wonder why it isn’t one. Time for a studio album, Mal! 🙂

Mallary Hope hails from Cohutta, Georgia. At the tender age of 15, she won first prize with a song she had written herself. She was doing 150 shows a year by the time she was in high school. By the time she graduated from home school, she had a song-publishing contrack and more than 500 demos recorded as a session singer of Music Row

Just so we’re clear, we have not turned into Weddings Quarterly.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who gets more IP addresses than phone numbers, we’d like to congratulate the talented and beautiful singer/songwriter from Cohutta, Mallary Hope, and her groom, Ryan Dokke, on the occasion of their wedding this past Sunday, April 13.

Mallary was generous enough to share several pictures on her Facebook and Instagram. This one was cute since they chose to have Mal’s dogs on the picture. From left to right that’s Penny, Nala and Java.

Have a great life, Mallary and Ryan 🙂
