Jordyn Mallory was so gung-ho about starting her singing career she convinced her parents to let her double up on her schoolwork and graduate one year early. Once free from the shackles of high school, the Oklahoma native wasted no time moving to Nashville and jumping in to her new profession. Already Mallory has opened for Loretta Lynn, Crystal Gayle, Emerson Drive and many more salient country acts. Credit her success to her strong songwriting chops and powerful voice”like Taylor Swift, if Taylor Swift could really belt it out. Ready is pop country terrain with a swelling chorus that sounds similar to Demi Lovato’s Skyscraper. Summertime Song and I Don’t Want It Again both follow the downward trajectory of love gone wrong, building the pathos with shuffling beats, keening fiddles and pretty falsettos. Mallory may have been done dirty by a past paramour, but she’s kicked the dust off her boots and has moved on to greener pastures. Sometimes success is the sweetest revenge.
