He continues to sing at the Oklahoma Opry where he first performed at the age of 10. Bryce also performs frequently at the new Oklahoma Centennial Rodeo Opry. He competed in last year’s Colgate Country Showdown, taking third place at Durant and second place at the Stillwater competition.
In the summer of 2005, Merritt was selected to represent Oklahoma at the National Youth Summit in Washington, DC. Merritt has sung the National Anthem at numerous athletic events including the OU/OSU bedlam baseball series, the Oklahoma City Blazers, and at Annapolis, Maryland for the United States Naval Academy Soccer Team. This spring, Merritt was in the musical play “Oklahoma!” at the historic Jewel Box Theatre in Oklahoma City. For the past two years, Merritt has performed for the Kingfisher Independence Day celebration.
In addition to singing, Merritt studies piano, picks at the guitar, is a competitive tennis player, plays club soccer, and is active in his church youth group. He has won numerous academic awards, is in the National Honor Society, and has served on the Student Council for his school.
Merritt can ride a horse but not a bull and says he is proud to be a part of the PBR festivities Sept. 1 and 2 in Ada.
