About Payton Taylor
During a trip to Nashville, Tennessee in August 2009, Payton was invited to jump on stage at a local music venue and perform a couple of songs. “That’s when I knew I wanted to sing Country Music for the rest of my life,” says Payton, “During that trip, I fell in love with Nashville – its history, its culture, and its music.” Fast-forward five years, and Payton is now making her mark in the industry with her energetic stage performances, her dynamic voice, and her melodic and lyrical songwriting.
Payton recently released her second CD in June 2014. The project, which features six songs written or co-written by Payton, was produced by award-winning producer Lynn Nichols, who has worked with artists such as The Band Perry, Amy Grant, and Switchfoot. In September, 2013, Payton released the first single from the project, a song called “Small Town Paradise”, to country radio and all major digital and online retail outlets. The success of the single helped further establish Payton as a formidable player in this new generation of up-and-coming country music artists.
