Get to know Ava Paige
For several years now, even the most experienced songwriters in Nashville have been both astonished and thankful they were put in a room with 18-year old country music artist Ava Paige. Paige is simply not your average up-and-coming young hopeful. She is an entire world apart.
Writing songs since she was small and taking guitar lessons for over eight years now, she is decidedly unique from other teenagers. Her idols have always been the creators of songs and she has never wavered in her desire to be one of them. An innate understanding of lifetimes past with her naturally young perspective has proven beneficial in her delivery of any song. A marvel at conveying the emotion necessary to allow audiences to truly feel the lyrics. This skill is especially reflected in her writing, which is why she continues to work with some of the industry’s best, including Marla Cannon-Goodman ( “The Fool” /Lee Ann Womack) Kendell Marvel (“Either Way /Chris Stapleton), Terri Jo Box (“American Scandal”/Ashley McBryde), Kessy Timmer (“Yeah Boy”/Kelsea Ballerini) Tina Parol (“Champagne Night”/Lady A) and Artists such as Drake White, Craig Campbell, and Charles Esten.
Paige has come away with several music industry awards, including being named Best Singer/Songwriter in the 2019 Nashville Scene Readers Poll. She has been playing live shows in Nashville for many years and had her first standing gig at The George Jones when she was just 13-years old. She has played iconic venues such as The Listening Room and The Bluebird Cafe, and is a frequent participant in songwriter shows around town that include hitmakers.
With her music career traveling in the fast lane, Paige was delivered a blow just before her 15th birthday. She was diagnosed with leukemia. Gigs and songwriting were put on hold and replaced with chemotherapy treatments. Ava is excited to announce she finished all treatments for leukemia on Dec 13th 2021 and is Cancer Free! Paige is determined to pay it forward by forming her own charity, Pick’n and Kick’n Cancer With Ava Paige. She’s also involved with a number of other similar charities including Rally Foundation, Leukemia Lymphoma Society, and is even Children’s Miracle Network’s 2022 National Ambassador.
