Lawler Elementary’s Fallon Kassinger is the daughter of Samuel and Miranda Kassinger of Leitchfield. She is simply known by Fallon Marie when she is performing live, and literally turned 11 this year on the stage in Pigeon Forge at the North American Country Music Association International while adoring fans cheered and sang along to her own unique throwback styling of bluegrass music. Fallon Marie brought home another Entertainer of the Year Award, this time adding a Female Vocalist of the Year, and an Instrumentalist of the Year Award with it.
Fallon Marie has been invited to return to Gatlinburg this summer for the Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival. With support from friends and mentors such as Jimmy Fortune, Linda Davis, Don Rigsby, Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent, and blossoming friendships with Sierra Hull, Ronnie Bowman, and the list just goes on, it’s exciting to see what Fallon Marie will do next.
