It’s been several years since Mallary Hope has made an appearance at CMA Fest, and this year she took us to church! Hope has changed paths from Country Music to Christian, but she was still invited to take part in Spotify/Opry’s Hot Country/Christian Brunch at Blake Shelton‘s new restaurant Ole Red.
We had other plans during the time slot, but once Hope announced her performance we knew we had to be there! It’s been awhile since we’ve gotten to see her perform and after all, she is one of our favorites! Hope has been busy raising two little girls with her husband, Ryan Dokke and performing on the Winter Jam tour that recently wrapped. She has been working on new music since releasing her self titled debut Christian EP Mallary Hope.

Hope has had a big impact on the Country Music scene, writing songs for the likes of Lauren Alaina, Jana Kramer, Katie Armiger and the cast of the show Nashville. She has been featured on two of Darius Rucker‘s albums and contributed background vocals on Miranda Lambert‘s Platinum album.
Hope was the first performance of the day and CMA Fest goers were waiting a long time to get inside to experience Ole Red and all it has to offer. She did not disappoint and engaged the crowd to clap and sing along as she performed familiar songs and new ones as well. Hope is celebrating her birthday today! Happy Birthday Mallary! Enjoy the photos from her performance!
