“This music has changed me and I have found what I believe to be my place in country music. I have never been more comfortable in my voice and skin as I am today.” -Stephanie Quayle
Rising country artist Stephanie Quayle continues to captivate listeners whether she is on stage in a packed venue or a small intimate setting. Recently invited to perform for five 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, the vibrant blonde’s radiating energy and booming personality grabs hold of an audience and doesn’t let go as she belts out her songs from behind her guitar and piano.
“Man, country music is better off with [Stephanie Quayle] in it!” - Lee Greenwood
Newest radio single, “Selfish,” offers a bold and honest female perspective that is garnering reactions from couples at every live performance.
“What can I say… I know how I feel about my man. I want all of his time. I can’t get enough of him. Walking into my writing session that day, we came up with this positive twist to a word that is usually a negative one. It’s been amazing to see couples react to this song like this is their story too. It is taking on a life of its own.”
Quayle covered over 9,000 miles on her summer “Winnebago Tour” in support of her latest project. Prompted by the single, “Winnebago,” the song transported the listener to all the beautiful places scattered throughout this great land from the Empire State to the Golden Gate and literally put Quayle on the road to live out each lyric from coast to coast.
“I just want to go live this song. I’d never seen the Hoover Dam before and I wanted to take a picture under Mt Rushmore! Growing up in the West, my grandparents would pull up in their motorhome and all the kids would jump in for the summer. It’s almost like everything has come full circle — Here I am singing about traveling this great country on the ultimate cross-country road trip in a new home on wheels!”
Partnering with national brands Kampgrounds of America (KOA), Winnebago, Polaroid and regional influencers The RV Loft and Summerfield Farms, the tour became a reality and took on a life of its own as Quayle played pop up concerts at must-stop destinations like the top of the Empire State Building, Mt Rushmore, the Hoover Dam, Niagara Falls while staying and performing at KOA campgrounds across the country.
Produced by the award-winning Matt McClure (2013 CMA “Song of the Year” - “I Drive Your Truck” by Lee Brice), Quayle’s album LOVE THE WAY YOU SEE ME is receiving critically-acclaimed reception with tracks penned by Quayle like “Post It,” “I’ve Got Your Six,” and the title track along with crowd favorites “Days Like These” “Ugly” and previous single “Drinking With Dolly.”
Nashville is buzzing about the rising star. Rolling Stone Country named Quayle a Top 10 “Artist You Need To Know;” Billboard.com filmed the exclusive performance on top of the Empire State Building; Our Own Nashville calls the new album one of the “most refreshing good albums” heard in awhile; and attended the star-studded Farrah Fawcett Foundation benefit event as a special guest and performer.
Quayle's debut single “Drinking With Dolly” from the new record is close to her heart. It is an anthem for all the women of country in a time when female artists are rising together to make a major impact in today’s music scene. Quayle celebrated her first Top 50 record on the Billboard Indicator chart. The single was a catalyst for moments like a #1 music video on the CMT Music 12-Pack Countdown, her national television debut on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” and an invitation to the respected Island Hopper Songwriter’s Festival.
