Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val as well.

Closer to home, she, along with The Heart­leys, won the Na­tional Coun­try Mu­sic Awards Best Duo/Group of the Year in 2012, along with the 2010 and 2013 South­land Al­bum of the Year too.

Kayla has now recorded her de­but al­bum with pro­ducer Roger Cor­bett from The Val­ley Stu­dio where she is step­ping into a ma­ture mu­si­cal­ity of­fer­ing per­sonal re­flec­tion and cre­at­ing her au­then­tic coun­try sound.

The year 2016 also brings plenty of ex­cite­ment.

Kayla says she will be off to Nashville in June to per­form on the Global Artist Show­case.

‘‘I won the Hori­zon Award in Au­gust which means I get the op­por­tu­nity to go to Nashville, a paid trip, rep­re­sent­ing New Zealand.’’

She will then head over to Aus­tralia in July to meet with some of the top Aus­tralian song writ­ers in coun­try mu­sic.

‘‘I’m just try­ing to get more shows go­ing. There’s lots of things go­ing on. I’m also up for some awards at the South­land En­ter­tain­ment Show in March.’’

It’s clear to see Kayla Ma­hon is con­tin­u­ing to take the coun­try mu­sic scene by storm, so be a part of this jour­ney by mak­ing your way to the Ra­dio Wanaka Stage at 12pm and 3pm on Fri­day and Satur­day to hear this tal­ented mu­si­cian in ac­tion.
