While Mary Fletcher is still a fresh-face to the Nashville music scene, at 25 she is already a seasoned professional. Growing up in Texas, this singer/songwriter became entrenched in the music scene at a very young age.
Efficient on the guitar and piano, Mary grew up performing on the stage at the Cactus Theater in Lubbock, Texas as a regular cast performer for nearly a decade. While there, Mary recorded two albums at Caldwell Studios in Lubbock, Somewhere and Christmas is Here.
One of those albums found its way into the hands the late Bob Heatherly, former Vice President of Sales and Marketing with Atlantic Records, who encouraged Mary to move to Nashville and pursue a career.
Immediately after graduating from Lubbock’s Monterey High School in 2011, Mary moved to Nashville. She studied commercial music at Trevecca Nazarene University before taking time off to work on her music full time, and has since gone back to Trevecca and will earn her Associate’s Degree in May, 2018 and has earned her Certification with the National Praise and Worship Institute at the University.
Early on, Nashville’s industry took notice of Mary’s talent, including Cody McCarver, longtime member of Confederate Railroad, who took her under his wing to help her champion her career, and hit songwriter, the late A.J. Masters (“Change My Mind”-John Berry, “Love Ain’t Like That”-Faith Hill), who began writing with her.
In June 2013, Mary released the Give My Love To You to country radio. The warmly-received 12-song album (available on Pandora Radio, Amazon, Itunes, CD Baby andMaryfletchermusic.com) was recorded in Michael McDonald’s studio in Franklin, Tennessee and features 10 songs co-written with Masters.
Her single “The Idea of You,” climbed to #42 on Music Row’s Country Breakout Chart. Her single “I Called Him Dad,” climbed to #75 on Music Row’s Country Breakout Chart. Her self-titled EP containing both hits and five songs penned by Mary was released in April, 2016.
Mary has played many notable venues, including the Bluebird Café, Douglas Corner, Nashville’s Hard Rock Café, The Billy Block Show, Dan McGuinness Pub, Jim Oliver’s Smokehouse, Sounds of West Texas, Grapevine Opry, Johnnie High Revue, Fourth on Broadway in Lubbock and countless songwriter’s rounds.
