Avery Anna Debuts New Song “Make It Look Easy”

Avery Anna’s new song, “Make It Look Easy” is out now, March 8th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.

Back in 2022, we introduced fans to talented singer-songwriter, Avery Anna. Back then, she was promoting her EP Mood Swings, and showcasing her undeniable talent. Today, she is back with new music that feels distinctly her, as well as more grown up, and even better than before! Anna’s new song, “Make It Look Easy” is out now.

Anna’s more refined sound is evident on “Make It Look Easy.” The song has grit, pain, and emotion. The songstress finds a way to mesmerize listeners even after just one listen. While all of Anna’s previous releases have been great, “Make It Look Easy” feels like a level up for the young, blossoming singer.

“You should just leave me // Why would you stay // I’ll never be what you want anyway // To be brutally honest // I’m really conscious // Of every single thing you say // It hit me last night // You’re planning the goodbye // Do you think that I’m blind // I see it in your eyes // Your truck’s in the driveway // Your mind’s on the highway // Know you’re gonna leave me / And make it look easy”

Anna absolutely shines on this new release.

It is hard to talk about 2022 without Megan Moroney popping into the conversation! The singer-songwriter steadily gained popularity on social media throughout the year. With half a million followers on TikTok alone, Moroney is clearly one to look out for. Her break-out single, “Tennessee Orange” was one of the biggest songs of the year.

It is hard not to fall in love with Mackenzie Carpenter. A co-writer behind Lily Rose’s smash hit, “Villain,” Carpenter is the real deal as a songwriter alone; however, her striking vocals add to her undeniable talent. Her current single, “Jesus, I’m Jealous” is one of our favorite new songs, and we anticipate that 2023 is going to be an incredible year for the new recording artist.



Listen: “Try Losing One”
Stay Connected: @tylerbradenmusic

Tyler Braden is the type of artist who knows exactly who is. The country-rock artist has the unique ability to create songs that are upbeat, yet sentimental or heartbreaking like his single, “Ways to Miss You.” This year, Braden is heading out on tour with Mitchell Tenpenny on the ‘This Is The Heavy’ tour and we look forward to seeing him win fans over show after show.




Listen: “Better Off Fishin'”
Stay Connected: @theshaneprofitt

We love a God moment, and Shane Profitt’s story is exactly that. Profitt is an artist that is hard not to love. His humble confidence is admirable, and his songs depict the exact experiences we all go through, while still conveying his own personal story. The Tennessee native lives and breathes country music, and it is evident both in his music and on stage.




Listen: “Narcissist”

Perhaps one of the biggest viral TikTok sensations on this list, Avery Anna rose to notoriety with her raw and incredible song “Narcissist.” She drew fans in by the thousands with each and every video she shared.

Who Is Avery Anna? The Story Behind Her Journey to Country Music

Who is Avery Anna? The singer-songwriter joined us to chat about her journey to country music. Get to know the rising star here…


Quick Facts:

Full Name – Avery Anna
Birthday – March 2
Hometown – Flagstaff, Arizona
Current City – Nashville, Tennessee
Music Influences – Taylor Swift, Kelsea Ballerini, Carrie Underwood
Label – Warner Music Nashville
Current project- Mood Swings EP (*as of date of article: 10/10/22)

The Beginning:

There is nothing better than championing young women in country music. Last week we shared country newcomer, Avery Anna’s brand new debut EP, Mood Swings, but today we are sharing her journey to where she is now. The young and talented singer-songwriter is an incredible storyteller with music that everyone needs to listen to.

Growing up in Flagstaff, Arizona, Anna always had a love for country music. She shares, “I started singing when I was really young with my grandpa. He would play guitar and I would sing. […] “We would sing traditional country music like Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard.” She credits those early experiences with her grandfather as the jumping-off point for why she fell in love with country music.

Anna also started writing music at a young age, after falling in love with Taylor Swift and her unique artistry.

“That’s kind of where my love of country music started and I’ve been keeping a journal, I write my own songs I guess since I was super little,” she began, adding later, “I remember going to a Taylor Swift concert when I was younger and watching her play, and thinking ‘I want to do this so so bad,’ but I never let myself verbally say that’s what I wanted to do for life, because I didn’t want that dream to be taken away from me if that doesn’t happen.”

Despite knowing in her heart that country music was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life, it was scary to admit that out loud. That all changed when social media gave her a platform for her music.

The Turning Point:

Like many of us, when the pandemic started, we went to social media to connect when we were born. For Anna, this started her on a trajectory to a record deal with Warner Music Nashville, but she didn’t know it yet. “When COVID hit during zoom school, I would get really, really bored, and I would go to my mom’s bathroom and I would sing in her big clawfoot bathtub because the acoustics were really good in there, and I posted on TikTok of me doing “Say Something” in there and it blew up.”

The viral video connected her with her managers, which eventually led to her record deal. “We started working together and I started posting my own music, and it’s just kind of taken off from there. It’s been a complete whirlwind,” shared the songstress. I graduated high school in May, so I’m 18, and I moved to Nashville in August and finished my senior year online.”

For Anna, the second she realized she could actually be a singer-songwriter and artist for a living, she was ready to go! “I never let myself have that dream until all the people around me believed in me, and then I was like pedal to the metal, let’s do this thing.”


Anna poured her love for artists like Taylor Swift, Patsy Cline, Zach Bryan, and Kelsea Ballerini into her debut EP, Mood Swings. According to the singer, “This EP touches on a lot of different parts of me as an artist that people haven’t seen yet in my music.”

The brand new project is an honest and incredible introduction to her incredible talent. “The reason that I called it ‘Mood Swings’ is because it has all the extreme emotions that I felt over the past couple of years. […] It kind of takes you on this emotional roller coaster if you listen to it top to bottom or even randomly, but I’m super, super proud of the writer’s on it.”

Songs like “Narcissist,” have already touched so many people across the music landscape “‘Narcissist’ for example has created this huge community on the internet of people who have walked through the same thing as me. And knowing that I wrote a song, created this space on the internet for people to talk about their stories is the most uplifting and comforting feeling in the whole world,” shared the singer.

Anna will continue to draw inspiration from her own life and infuse it into her music. Fans can catch her on tour with Spencer Crandall, and can anticipate more new music coming sooner rather than later! Keep Anna on your radar for sure.

Avery Anna: ‘Mood Swings’ – EP Review

Avery Anna’s EP, Mood Swings, is out now, October 7th on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new project below and check out our full review.

With over 27.5 million likes and 1.5 million followers on TikTok, Avery Anna has made quite the name for herself. She’s opened for Josh Turner, Martina McBride, Parmalee, and even scored a viral Kelly Clarkson #Kellyoke cover of her song “Narcissist” on the superstar’s television show.

Today, the Flagstaff, Arizona native releases her debut EP with Warner Music Nashville, Mood Swings. Produced by David Fanning, each song on the seven-track project was co-written by Anna, invoking hints of Taylor Swift, Lucie Silvas, Kelsea Ballerini, and Ingrid Andress.

Mood Swings is made up of songs that are inspired by moments in my own life where I have felt either really happy, really in love, really confused, or even really sad,” revealed the rising star. “These songs come straight from the heart, so I am so excited for you to hear them!” 

“I’m seventeen years old // My socks don’t match // Any other clothes I wear // When I get stressed I wanna dye my hair // Say ‘yes’ when I mean ‘no’ // Sometimes I think my Arizona license plate // Is my best personality trait,” Anna begins on the EP’s opening track “la di da,” introducing herself to listeners as an unapologetically honest ingenue.

This trend weaves its way through the EP, the honest vulnerability in each song is sure to endear Anna to her ever-growing fanbase. There’s the empowering first single, “Narcissist,” a piano-driven ballad that’s cleverly directed at an ex who can’t quite get over himself. 

“’Cause you say that I’m crazy // You say that you’re sorry // Won’t happen again // You say I’m dramatic // I’m overreacting // And maybe I am // And I know you’ll get over me // But can you get over yourself? // Before you go and love somebody else // You should probably get some help.”

While it’s “Narcissist” that caused Anna to truly break out beyond TikTok, the EP continues to show a depth rarely seen on debut projects. On the stunning, “what made you think?,” which she co-wrote with Andy Sheridan and Seth Ennis, she finds herself caught up with an ex who can’t help but to overstep his boundaries. “What made you think I should care what made you think of me?” She asks with a wisdom way beyond her 17 years.

“biggest t-shirt” is a song for every person, a heart-wrenching letter to Anna’s insecurities, hidden beneath an oversized shirt. “She knows she’s beautiful,” She sings, voice breaking. “But she thinks the mirror lies, but she keeps it all inside.” Meanwhile, “Critic” finds her dealing with a naysayer, who can’t help but put her down. “I thought I was my own worst critic,” she muses on the lush ballad. “But it’s you.”

Meanwhile, “lovesick” finds her in the throes of new love, while “Good Days” is a sunny and earwormy bop. Things are looking bright for Anna on the EP’s final track, declaring that nothing is going to bring her down, as “let them say what they say, ain’t nobody throwing shade on my good day.”

While Avery Anna may have begun her career singing covers in the bathtub, her new EP, Mood Swings, is certain to take her from the bathroom to the big stage in no time
