It’s not everyday you get to see a great performer like Mallary Hope! So when the opportunity presents itself, you go! Even if that means a 6 hour road trip for a 30 minute set! Yes friends, she is more than worth it!
Although Hope still doesn’t have a record label to call home, she has been having a lot more tour dates since she got signed with her booking agency. It’s wonderful to see her making new fans and opening up for some of the greats like Clint Black, Darius Rucker, The Charlie Daniels Band and Corey Smith (to name a few).
She has penned songs cut by other artists like Lauren Alaina (Georgia Peaches, The Locket), Jana Kramer (King Of Apology), Katie Armiger (Safe), Danny Gokey (Win Me Over), Danielle Bradbery (My Day) and Jennette McCurdy (Don’t You Just Hate Those People, Break Your Heart). She is also featured on a duet with Darius Rucker (I Will Love You Still) on his latest record.
Hope has a song called “Daughter of the South” which captures some of her feisty side. The songs reveals why she is the way she is and how growing up a Country Girl has shaped her. “I grew up on Johnny Cash and Jesus Christ…” she sings.
There’s a particular line in the song that goes “It don’t matter where you’re from, matter where you’re raised, from New York City down to L.A. everybody’s got a little southern running through their veins,” in which case Hope changes L.A. to whatever city she is in. So tonight it’s to San Jose. Here’s a clip!
Hope even sang a song she doesn’t normally sing, which happened to be her first single about 5 years ago called “Love Lives On.” Hope joked earlier on her social media accounts that she had to google the lyrics to her own song. KRTY plays the song on their station regularly which is why it was a nice treat for listeners to hear live.
Hope also sang her well known song Georgia Peaches, in which she likes to change Georgia Peaches to whatever the state is known for. So we got California Avocados, Nuts and Wine!
Here’s a clip!
Hope then went into a 12 minute Medley of a whole bunch of Country Songs she loves and grew up singing and invited the crowd to sing along. If they weren’t too familiar with one she would move on to the next.
That was fun!!! Hope took a video of the crowd and shared it via Instagram, Twitter and Instagram!

Once Hope’s set ended she watched former The Voice contestants The Swon Brothers do their set. Hope even texted a mother’s daughter who told her how jealous she was that she got to be there. The Swon Brothers also invited Hope up to sing the song that made Blake Shelton turn his chair around, American Girl!
After the show was over both artists signed autographs and took pictures with all of the fans who were wiling to wait to meet them!
If you have a chance to catch a show, GO!! Hope is not only an insanely talented song writer, but powerful performer. She hits those notes and delivers an upbeat performance that is sure to have you dancing along. She is also an extremely humble person who is down to earth and so kind hearted! As KRTY said “She owns Nashville!”
August 27, 2009 Taylor Swift Posted “Getting ready to “Juliet” by LMNT. It’s a middle school dance party in here.”
Oddly enough LMNT band member Bryan Chan was also getting ready… to be a father! His daughter was born that week and four years later he is the one getting ready to all of Swift’s songs!
Watch this adorable video of him and his daughter singing along to Swift’s music! (x)
Back in 2008, Thompson Square’s Keifer & Shawna were working at a small club in Nashville. Keifer recalls, “I was a 150 pound bouncer at a hip hop club. I had some interesting nights. I had to quit, or I wouldn’t be able to play guitar any more.” (Shawna) “Wasn’t there a night when Lady Antebellum came in, it was before we knew then, and Hillary was trying to get in. You were messing with her, like there was a password, she needed a password to get in.” (Keifer) “Dave was with her, he’s such a sweet guy, and I was messing with them. And there was no ego, they were like, ‘OK, we won’t come in then.’ They were real nice.” Lon played that story for Lady A, and Dave said, “Oh no, it was probably Hollywood Disco! Don’t tell my mom I ever went there.” (Charles) “It’s not a strip club. But the Disco name definitely takes it there. This is back in their single days, Hillary & Dave were out on the prowl. They’d go out together, she’d bring up girls for Dave.” (Dave) “If it was us together, then I remember being there a couple times.”

Charlie Worsham in the studio with America’s Morning Show! 2/6/14 -
We have been humming his song, stuck in our heads- “Could It Be”- for weeks now, and today we welcomed none other than Charlie Worsham into the studio! He joined us this morning to share about his new single, “Want Me Too” as well as his love of infusing bluegrass into his songs, playing banjo at the Grand Ole Opry as a kid, covering pop songs in 24 hours as part of his cover challenges and just exactly what country star and celebrity comparisons he always gets- from Vince Gill to Diamond Rio to Christian Bale! Plus, we HAD to ask about his signature orange shoes and just exactly what creative ‘instruments’ he plays…including the classic ‘box of rocks’!
