Best of Halifax

Best Country Artist / Band

Gold Winner Makayla Lynn

Silver Winner Brooklyn Blackmore

Bronze Winner Samantha Power

Makayla Lynn is so country she’s calling from Nashville, where she’s been on a writing trip. “I’m here for the next couple weeks, hanging out and writing music,” says the East Hants native. Writing music means co-writing two songs a day, with different people each time. Maybe the songs will be recorded, maybe they won’t. Right now it’s all about the process. “Some of my biggest highlights of my career and my life have happened over the last year,” says Lynn. “It’s wild. The awards, different articles, a video on CMT. These little pinch-me moments that I’m sitting back, taking them all in.”
