On January 7, 2016, Mallary posted the following on her Facebook account. Finally!

Congratulations Mallary!

So excited to share that I signed a new record deal!! I'm so grateful to my management team at [sic] Mcghee who have not given up on me when others have.

These last 4 years, career wise, I've felt so often like I wasn't getting anywhere. Now I know it was out of my control and in God's hands...

I'm so thankful to have found a record label who believes in me as an artist. My voice, my songs & my message.

It's such an exciting time for me to know I'll be somewhere where I can make a Christian & Country album. I'll finally (after 12 years) be able to have a fully produced & *released* album.

I'm so excited to be able to get it out to my fans. (I hope I have some left) [smile emoticon] I'll be able to share more details soon, so Stay tuned.

Huge thanks to all of you who have been rooting for me. I'm so excited to see where this journey takes us. Bring it on 2016!

Mallary Hope's Song
Sung by Danielle Bradbery
Theme of 2014 Winter Olympics!

Mallary Hope wrote the following via social networking on December 10, 2013:

I am so excited and thankful that my song "My Day" recorded by Danielle Bradbery (winner of "The Voice") will be the "Theme Song" for the 2014 Winter Olympics. The first commercial will air tonight on NBC during "The Voice."

I have a show in Dallas so I will miss it. Baby you better hit record on the DVR for me.

Huge thanks to Allison Jones and everyone at Big Machine for believing in my song and allowing DB to cut it.

When I wrote this song 5 years ago and recorded it, I told everyone I knew that if I ever got the chance to make a video I could see the vision in my head of what I would want. I wanted to incorporate scenes from "The Biggest Loser," breast cancer walks, soldiers returning home from war, kids graduating, and, yes, even the Olympics.

I tried, but couldn't bring my dreams to reality. Now I understand why. It wasn't meant for me.. It wasn't (yes wait for it) "My Day," it is her day.

It is pretty amazing how someone else can help make your dreams come true. Even after you thought your moment had passed. So very, very happy at this moment.

You can hear the song "My Day" on Danielle's new album. You can also learn more of Mallary's recent successes on our Mallary Hope page here.

Mallary Hope continues to rise and make herself known in the Nashville music scene, having appeared at the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium, and on a video with Taylor Swift, among many other accomplishments. Though she tries to avoid calling attention to any glamor, the two pictures here demonstrate her appeal. Mallary's great draw, to this webmaster, is that she remains loyal to both God and Family.

From Ms. Kaye Whitener July, 2009 re: a tribute to our Janet for the Gene Autry Museum in lieu of Janet's upcoming Lifetime Achievement Award in September, 2009

Congrats on the Award Janet.
I know you truly deserve it.

To the Gene Autry Museum: I hope this is what you are looking for, it's just a little history of meeting Janet and her connection to Mallary.

Mallary was 11 years old and was performing a version to the LeAnn Rimes "Cattle Call" at shows when I started going on the web looking for help in teaching her how to learn to yodel correctly. I found Janet on her website and emailed her. She quickly returned my email with a phone number and we began a long conversation about Mallary and yodeling.

Janet has such a heart for teaching children and you could tell it even over the phone. We were looking for some yodeling songs that Mallary could record and perform out at live shows and Janet was such a wealth of information and sent us several of her songs to listen to just to see if that was what Mallary was looking for. The first song Mallary
recorded was Yodeling At the Grand ole Opry. Janet also sent some technique tapes for Mallary to practice with.

We stayed in touch and Janet called one day to say they would be coming through our town on the way back from Florida and wanted to see if we could meet and maybe she could work with Mallary personally. We rented a room at the Whitfield County Convention Center. Janet stayed with Mallary for two hours going over technique and delivery. We tried to pay Janet for her time and she wouldn't take any money at all. We agreed simply on buying dinner for her and her husband at Cracker Barrel.

Over the next few years we would stay in touch by email. Mallary had met a young boy two years older then herself when she was 15 and they started singing together. We contacted Janet looking for a Yodeling duet for them to perform together and again Janet came through with flying colors and sent us "Yodeler's Dream". Mallary and Justin performed this and received many awards at competitions. They even went on the following year to the finals at the Colgate Country Showdown.

Mallary was performing roughly 100+ shows a year when we decided to move to Nashville TN. She was just finishing up her Junior year of high school and was homed schooled her senior year. Withing a year of moving to Nashville Mallary received a demo deal from RCA. During the one year contract she was introduced to Mark Bright the producer for such acts as Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Sara Evans, Reba McIntyre and many more. Sony and RCA merged that year leaving the label top heavy with artist is and no place for a new artist.

During the next year Mallary fell under the creative wings of Mark Bright who signed her to a publishing deal with My Good Girl / Sony Publishing. Within 7 months she had her first cut with Emily West which became her single called "That Kind Of Happy".

After three record label offers within three weeks Mallary landed at Universal Records Nashville. She recently cut her first album and 10 out of the 11 songs are her songs.

Last week she finished her first video to her Single "Love Lives On" which will hit radio August 3rd and be available for download Aug. 4th [2009] at Amazon.com.

There is no magic yellow brick road into the music business however with people out there like Janet McBride willing to share her talent with young people it makes the journey easier.

We are so proud of Janet and proud that God put her in our lives.. Congrats again on this award.


From Kaye Whitener:

Please click to see a larger version.

I had to share this video with you guys of Mallary's visit to St. Jude in Memphis last week.

Last week was Country Cares week and a lot of Country Music artists go and spend the day with children and their families and sign autographs etc. They paired Mallary with three children, one is Jayden who is 2 and will be turning three 2-16.

Jayden had been throwing up a lot over the past year and his parents had taken him to the doctor. the doctor finally told them that they were only seeking attention that children throw up.

Of course they knew this was not right so they found another doctor who immediately ran tests and found that Jayden has brain cancer. His family has been at St. Jude's since July. The doctors there have told them that the cancer has spread too far to really be able to do anything about it now, and they are simply keeping him comfortable and trying to slow it down.

I said all of that so that when you go through this video pay attention to Jayden, because now you know his story and if fact it could be any one of our children / grandchildren at any time.

Please note the lullaby song that is playing in the background. That is a song Mallary wrote a few months ago for a little girl who lives across the street from us. She is 7 years old with Brain Cancer as well.

Please keep these families and children in your prayers.

Wednesday, November 19, 2003

After a search on the Internet looking for some instructions on Yodeling, I came across Mrs. Janet McBride's site. I e-mailed her and we began a friendship that I value very dearly.

Janet has worked with both Mallary and Justin in several workshops and individual lessons. She has helped them understand the methods and techniques to yodeling. She is such an great inspiration and teacher.

Mallary and Justin perform one of Janet's songs, "Yodeler's Dream," and have brought down audiences everywhere they perform it.

We are truly grateful for her friendship. She is the "best of the best."

Thanks Mrs. Janet, we love you.
