As 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.
On the heels of releasing the special version of fan-favorite “Ugly (Far From Ugly Edition)” and music video to support the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement, Quayle is ready to share her much-anticipated new music.
Quayle’s new 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. The new sound impacts the country music genre with an evolved sound that reflects her authentic western roots. Steeped in cowboy imagery and baritone guitar sonics, the Montana native is anxious to hit the road and share her music with her loyal fanbase known as the Flock Of Quayle and new listeners everywhere.
”I grew up with cowboys — always wanted to be one. This song highlights the toughness of the ‘cowboy state of mind,’ and as a Montana kid, I can’t help but connect with the imagery,” shares Quayle. “The feel and messaging are a really unique juxtaposition of vulnerability and strength. I think we all want to be a cowboy… if this isn’t universal, it should be!”
Co-written by Grammy-nominated hit songwriters Nicole Gallyon, Ross Copperman and Grammy-winning Shane McAnally, the song carries heavy lyrical weight. Quayle turned to Julian King, alongside executive producer and industry veteran Mark Wright, to produce the first taste of her forthcoming album (release date TBD). 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.
Named one of Rolling Stone Country’s “Top Artists You Need To Know,” Quayle is garnering attention 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 Kampgrounds Of America (KOA), Winnebago, Wrangler, Polaroid and more throughout multiple campaigns.
Quayle is just getting started.
