Canadian Country Music Singer/Songwriter
Hailing from St. Thomas, Ontario, Traci Kennedy has been performing in the public eye for the past 30 years and remains one of the most grounded artists you will ever meet. It is evident in the way she interacts with her growing legion of fans and in the way she unselfishly gives of her time, both as a community leader and as a mentor to up and coming artists who have crossed her path.
Traci's accolades and accomplishments are endless and they continue to multiply. In 1999, she took top honours in the Female Open category at the Canadian Open Country Singing Contest in Simcoe, Ontario....and again in 2003 at the Ontario Open Country Singing Contest. In 2006, she was the only Canadian Finalist in the "All American Superstar" competition and released her debut CD "How Many Hearts" to rave reviews. That same year she was chosen to be a D.A.R.E. Role Model for the students in Mishawaka, Indiana. In 2007, Traci won "Best Country Female Artist" and "Best Country Album" in the Independent Artist Category with Toronto Exclusive Magazine. In November 2014, Traci received "runner up" placement in the International Song of the Year songwriting competition for her yet to be released song "Dirty Laundry".
Traci has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some of country music's best including Lonestar, Sawyer Brown, The Road Hammers, Trace Adkins, Johnny Reid and Charlie Major, to name a few.......and gives graciously of her time for a myriad of charities including the Alzheimer's Society, Canadian Cancer Society, and Easter Seals.
