Australian native Kylie Sackley, winner of Australia's most prestigious country music talent search, Star Maker (Keith Urban was a previous winner), has been added to the schedule of songwriters performing at the Palm Coast Songwriters Festival May 3-5, 2019. As a wunderkind performer in her birthplace of Australia, Sackley dazzled audiences with her authentic grasp of country, her gorgeously expressive vocals and her electrifying stage presence. Now living in Nashville, Sackley's songs have been recorded by Sam Hunt, Keith Urban, Randy Houser, Alan Jackson, Danielle Bradberry, Faith Hill, LeAnn Rimes and more, including Walker Hayes' single "You Broke Up With Me." Recently she performed with Thomas Rhett and Luke Combs in the Australian Country Music Festival.
