DaniElle plays in Harrison on Saturday.

DaniElle’s country music career got another big boost, as she was a winner in the CMT Chevy From the Tailgate Contest, announced Saturday.

“Finding the next local legend” was the contest theme, and Danielle Severinski is an up-and-coming country music talent out of Pitt Meadows. She has been hitting stages from her hometown to the Calgary Stampede, and at Harrison’s Bands on the Beach on Saturday.

The latest win gives here $10,000 worth of recording time, in addition to prestige.

To celebrate, she will be at Chances Maple Ridge this Friday for a celebration and performance, from 9:30 p.m. until midnight.

“When I was in the Chevy Tailgate contest, you guys really had my back and I can’t thank you enough,” she said in an online post to her supporters.

“I’ll be playing lots of music and I’m gonna bake y’all a thank-you cake, so you’re gonna wanna be there cause I’m the worst cook!”

The cake is a way to say thanks to the fans who took the time to vote for her in the online contest. So is the show – admission to the concert will be free.

DaniElle, 19, has been singing at church and in musical theatre classes since she was a child. In her Grade 11 year at high school, she started to get serious about a music career, entering contests and performing.

She received a golden ticket in YTV’s “The Next Star” and placed second in B.C.’s Best Teen Band Contest.
