Payton Taylor grew up in South Jersey and developed an “old soul” through listening to her grandfather’s favorite records as a child. In 2013, Payton convinced her family to make the move to Music City, where she’s continued to develop her soulful sound as a country music singer-songwriter. Payton has spent the past five years learning from some of the best songwriters and producers in the industry, including Wade Kirby (George Strait’s No. 1 “I Saw God Today,” Blake Shelton’s No. 1 “Doin’ What She Likes”) and Phil O’Donnell (George Strait’s No. 1 “Give It All We Got Tonight,” Clay Walker’s “She Won’t Be Lonely Long”). She has also opened for Charlie Daniels and was invited to the Grand Ole Opry stage by William Michael Morgan. Payton’s single from her upcoming 6 song EP is set to be released soon.
