This talented, ambitious, inspiring and aspiring singer, songwriter, musician and entertainer is doing what it takes to get things done in the business of music show business. From Avery's recent appearance on the Hollywood version of American Idol (getting that far is a big deal) to attending the esteemed Belmont University in Nashville for business and songwriting, she's making the rounds and not getting dizzy. During her high school days, Ms. Kern took music lessons from Micah Walk and found they had similar tastes in songwriting. Between her busy gig schedule here, Avery keeps up a professional presence in Nashville where she's currently working on songs to develop into an EP of original music. Along with her aptitude for penning a fine tune, in her live shows she can cover a cover like nobody's business. She's also in the running for Best Songwriter and Best Female Vocalist in our Best of Springfield for 2020. "You go girl," would be an understatement, 'cause this young woman is already going, going, gone.
