Our “One to Watch” country music artist for the month of July is Kayla Conn. Kayla is a young 16-year old rising star from Cypress, Texas who is busy fulfilling her duties as a senior in high school while pursuing her career as a singer and songwriter on the country music scene. Unlike most young girls Kayla’s age who are just beginning to drive themselves to school, Kayla has been behind the wheel driving her dreams to reality for much of her life.
Many of us can’t even fully speak well at the age of three much less hold a tune, but Kayla began singing and writing as just a small child ready to take on the world. At the age of ten, Kayla taught herself how to play the guitar. Six years have now passed since she picked up that guitar to teach herself how to make music, and much has changed for Kayla. She is now performing with big name country music artists such as Gloriana, Love and Theft, Greg Bates, and Scotty McCreery.
Kayla’s latest single, “Ride”, is one she co-wrote. This song embodies everything most teenage girls love about life at the age of 16. It encompasses adventure and fun; two things Kayla loves. This young artist has only begun to touch lives through her music, adventurous spirit, and excitement for the future. With just one listen to “Ride,” all of our Justin fans out there will be ready to go hit the back roads with the windows down blaring Kayla’s tunes.
Away from the music scene, Kayla loves life and is always ready for an adventure. She has been highly active in FFA through her involvement in the talent competition. Kayla won first place at both her district FFA Talent Competition as well as her area competition. She has also competed at the Texas FFA Convention, and she represented her FFA chapter at the National FFA Convention as well. This camo-wearing and four-wheeling girl is more than ready to take on all the experiences, blessings, and songs that are just around the corner of her blazing career.
When we caught up with Kayla, she told us that she can’t take on all of life’s adventures without her Justin Boots, so we asked her what her favorite style of Justin’s are. The winner was (drum roll please!) the Justin Vintage Moka Damiana style L4337! Kayla says, “I’m a straight up country girl! I love off-roading, mudding, four-wheeling, and camping; basically the outdoors is my second home. My Justin Boots are perfect for my crazy outdoor lifestyle!”
