You may know her name from her success as a world-class athlete; winning a Gold Medal in the 2012 Olympics as part of the “Fierce Five” Gymnastic powerhouse.

Since her departure from the sport in 2016, Maroney has had success in the acting world with appearances on the CW series “Hart Of Dixie” as well as the Fox hit “Bones,” but she found her true passion lies in music. Locked away, studying and honing her latest craft, McKayla is ready to shock the world again, but this time as a musician.

“COVID Lockdown is one of those songs I’d usually just keep for myself and never release, but every time I listen to it, it makes me laugh.. and I think we could all use a laugh right now,” McKayla explained. “It all happened supernaturally, and I just didn’t feel like fighting it. I freestyled over a Drake type beat in my car, just venting about my life, and It ended up sounding not half bad. I knew if I was going to finish it, I’d want JIG Lefrost on it with me. He, of course, he pulled up to my recording space and killed it, so here we are.”
