Jackie K pays tribute to her father with her touching new country-folk single Night At The Opry — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Initially released on her 2021 EP Look For The Little Things, Night At The Opry is a captivating composition that tugs on the heartstrings. The song was inspired by a class trip the high school music teacher took to the world-famous Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
“My dad would have loved it there,” the Battleford, Sask,. singer-songwriter shares. “The sense of community, the music, the jokes. I really missed him, and I wished that he would have had that opportunity.” Shortly after she returned home, she began to pen Night At The Opry. “It was about my trip, but more about my dad Jake.”
Born in Saskatoon, Jackie Kroczynski learned to love music from an early age, enjoying a broad spectrum of influences that includes Elvis Costello, Diana Krall and Ron Sexsmith. When she isn’t playing the Unplugged show on CJWW Radio in Saskatoon or performing with her New Orleans-inspired band Jivin’ Jackie & Big Baby T, she’s teaching band and guitar at North Battleford Comprehensive High School.
