Saturday February 29As a newly inducted member of CMT's Next Women of Country class of 2019, Stephanie Quayle is celebrating a breakthrough year in country music.
The Rebel Engine Entertainment recording artist was one of the most active female artists with a consistent presence on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, official music video airplay on CMT and a vigorous performance schedule.
The singer-songwriter made her debut on both the Grand Ole Opry and historic Ryman Auditorium stages, along with hosting for Wrangler Network on the ACM Awards red carpet, as well as hosting for Sounds Like Nashville on the CMT Awards and CMA Awards red carpets. And in a once in a lifetime opportunity, she was the only indie act invited to perform for the five living former U.S. presidents (Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, H.W. Bush and Carter) as part of the hurricane relief concert "Deep From The Heart: The One America Appeal" in Texas.
Quayle's radio single, “If I Was A Cowboy,” charged out of the gates as a Top 10 Most Added song at Country radio (Mediabase) in its first week and continues to capture attention with its stunning music video. She follows this fan-favorite up with the lighter and infectious "Whatcha Drinkin 'Bout" - receiving early support from country radio - from the newly released project. The songstress has been working alongside producer Julian King and executive producer and industry veteran Mark Wright on her latest offerings, the IF I WAS A COWBOY - EP. The new sound impacts the country music genre with an evolved sonic that embraces her authentic western roots in today's contemporary country landscape. The trio have hit their stride in the studio blending baritone guitars with Quayle’s warm and powerful vocals drawing inspiration from the Montana native’s western roots. Steeped in cowboy imagery and baritone guitar sonics, the Montana native is on the road and sharing her music with her loyal fanbase known as the Flock Of Quayle.
“I am really proud of my Western roots and I’m leaning into them more than ever before, not only with my writing but sonically as well,” says Stephanie. She continues, “Montana is all over this project and nothing could make me happier than to share that with the world.”
“My heart and my western ways are in this project. As a songwriter and artist, I am proud of the craft that is shared in this body of work. Music is the soundtrack for all the different moments in our lives and I feel like these five songs hit on a little bit of everything. From ‘Evel Knievel’ to ‘Untitled,’ it’s the journey we’re on together….what lies ahead is endless and filled with possibility. This theme is where my feet are right now and how I feel about my next chapter of music,” says Quayle.
Named one of Rolling Stone Country's "Top Artists You Need To Know," Quayle is garnering a buzz from her high-energy live performances across the country while sharing stages with artists like Brett Eldredge, Jon Pardi, Carly Pearce, LoCASH, Billy Currington and more; her magnetic energy and booming personality grabs hold of audiences wherever she goes.
She has been highlighted in People, Huffington Post, Glamour, Hollywood Life, Inspirer Magazine, Taste Of Country and Sounds Like Nashville, to name a few. She also serves as music ambassador for Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply, an original store from her hometown of Bozeman, MT, and has teamed up with national brands like Wrangler, Kampgrounds Of America (KOA), Winnebago, Polaroid, and more throughout multiple campaigns.
