Country Music Talent on her way to Nashville

The CMA Music Festival is an annual event that has been held in Nashville Tennessee since 2001. Running in the days leading up to the festival is the Global Party, in which a number of, talented, global artists are invited to perform.

New Zealand grown talent, Kaylee Bell, has music in her veins. Recently appearing at the Caboolture Urban Country Festival, Kaylee has made Australia her home. Kaylees first performance was as a 4 year old, with her brother and sister, in a variety show doing Bobby Darins 'Splish Splash".

A lady that loves country, she took out the NZ Golden Guitar at the tender age of 18. Most recently Kaylee won the prestigious New Zealand Horizon award in Hamilton. Included in the prizes were a guest trip, sponsored by Telstra, to Tamworth and chance to play at the Global artist party.

Amongst other artists, Kaylee will share the June 6 stage with Australian Luke Dickens, Diana Corcoran, McAlister Kemp and O'Shea (who are also hosting the show).

Tommy Emmanuel perfectly sums up the skills of this songstress “Kaylee is a strong and emotional singer with a great feel for melody and lyrics.”
