Arvest Concert Series – FREE No Tickets Required
Marybeth Byrd, with full band
Thursday, October 26, 2023
Marybeth Byrd is a 22-year-old singer songwriter from Armorel, Arkansas. With a wheelhouse of Country and Pop, her love for music is rooted in her childhood where the stage gave her a voice and helped her overcome stuttering. Back in 2019, she made the top 8 semifinals on S17 of NBC’s The Voice with the help of her coach, John Legend, and mentors: Usher and Taylor Swift. In 2023, she made the top 10 on S21 of American Idol! She now performs at various venues, teaches vocal lessons, makes dozens of appearances and works on original music. Not only does she want to use her voice to sing, but also to story tell truth with grace in her music. A therapy - to herself and to those listening. Her dream is to make this a full-time career and hopefully one day, hear a crowd screaming her songs at the top of their lungs.
