Savannah Burrows stuns the crowd at Concerts in the Park

Central Park was packed on Saturday with attendees listening to their very own local Savannah Burrows.

Burrows is just 16 years old and is already starring in major productions like Concerts in the Park—the biggest performance of her life.

“This is my home town, I love Santa Clarita and it is the most heartwarming thing,” said Burrows.

Burrows performed 11 of her own original songs Saturday night to entice the crowd, such as Wayne Cox who is a new-found country fan.

“After 63 years I finally figured out country has something to it.”

“I think it’s so important to keep on performing in Santa Clarita,” Burrows said. “I can reach my audience in my hometown, but then extend that audience once I go to further venues and keep the people who love my music close to me.”

Burrows first performed in front of a large audience when she was 9 years old, more than seven years ago.
“I’ve been playing guitar and piano … ever since I really could,” Burrows said.

In 2016, Burrows won the local leg of the annual Country Showdown, a national music contest where over 400 radio stations compete to put forth the next big country music act. Burrows, the KHTS contestant for that year, reached the semi-final regional competition in New Mexico.

Savannah Burrows, a Santa Clarita singer and songwriter who only performs her own original music, is no stranger to playing for large crowds.

She has performed for a large audience of 3,000 in Los Angeles as well as at the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tenn., where Taylor Swift and Garth Brooks were discovered. In Valencia at a music festival, she opened for the Swon Brothers, who were nominated for the Academy of Country Western Music’s “Vocal Duo of the Year.”

However, she faced an even larger crowd Saturday night. Over 15,000 Santa Clarita residents showed up to hear the local finalists for the Country Showdown competition: Burrows, Jarett James and Joshua Wade Aigner.
