Rising country artist ​Payton Taylor ​is set to release her new single, ​Whiskey On My Wings, ​October 1​.

Written by Payton Taylor, Wade Kirby, Phil O’Donnell and Shane Minor, ​Whiskey On My Wings​ is the debut track from Payton’s new project produced by hit songwriters with Phil O’Donnell (George Strait’s “Give It All We Got Tonight”, Blake Shelton’s “Doin’ What She Likes”) and Wade Kirby (Easton Corbin’s “All Over the Road”, George Strait’s “I Saw God Today”),

“I feel like ‘Whiskey on My Wings’ is my confessional”, says Taylor. She continues, “It’s the Saturday night decisions that leads to Sunday morning salvation. Since moving to Nashville, I’ve learned that chasing a dream can be beautiful and messy all at the same time. I’ve had to grow up and try to walk the ‘straight and narrow’, but sometimes I lose my balance. We all do. This song is a testament to that, and I couldn’t be more ready for it to be heard.”

As a female country artist, Taylor is also a passionate supporter of other females working hard to make it in the music industry.

“Women are not just muses to be written about. Women are voices to be written for.”

Earlier this year, Payton was featured as an artist on ​American Idol​ after appearing only ​to accompany her younger sister on acoustic guitar. After hearing Payton’s rendition of “Angel From Montgomery,” the judges’ suspicions were confirmed and both sisters were offered their own golden ticket. Her performance was featured by ​Good Morning America​, ​ ​Billboard​, ​Hollywood Reporter​, Taste of Country, ​ and S​ounds Like Nashville 

Payton Taylor, born January 29, 1997, 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 “Whiskey On My Wings” is set to be October 2018.

Hi, I’m Annette, I have been a huge country music fan since the early 90s those were the days we were lucky enough to have CMT in the UK. I enjoy nothing more than listening to country music whilst having a cold beer (or a moonshine) with friends. I try to as many gigs as I can here in the UK and in the USA; I think of Nashville as my second home and I am lucky to have made some amazing friends in Tennessee. Think Country is something I am very proud of, I just want to share my love and passion of all things country music related with you all.
