Marty Summers
Marty Summers
Marty Summers grew up in Cheyenne, a small town in western Oklahoma. As a young boy, he sang at church, school, and family events, but didn't "officially" take the stage until he joined the Rodeo Opry family in 2009. Marty purchased his first acoustic guitar in 2008. Often accompanied by his musical neighbor, Glenn, he began learning songs on his guitar and singing in living room jam sessions.

Marty and his wife, Stephanie, discovered the Rodeo Opry one weekend when looking for a live music show to attend - and they have been fans ever since. About a year after attending their first show, Marty auditioned and has since become a repeat performer.

Marty graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1994 and is currently employed by Devon Energy. He and Stephanie live in SW OKC.

In 2015 Merique co-wrote and recorded her Album, “The Coming Dawn” at Studio Seven/Lunacy Records, in Oklahoma City. It was released in January 2016.

Merique’s album was on the ballots for the 59th Grammy awards and continues to draw attention.
Not only has her album been play listed on numerous radio stations and music steaming sites worldwide, but her singles, “Butterfl-eyes”, “Legacy” and “Rivers” are also abuzz in the music world, with “Rivers” being awarded a Bronze Medal in the Global Music awards.

At a rugby game in July of 2016, Merique performed to a crowd of 30,000 people at the Emirates Park Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa. This has been her biggest performance to date and will certainly not be her last.

2017 was a busy year for the artist with performances and writing songs for her new album. She also created a few art projects, one of which was a 26 square metre train mural for a Coffee Shop near Paarl, WC, South Africa.
