PROJECT MFG TAPS COUNTRY MUSIC STAR AND ENTREPRENEUR STEPHANIE QUAYLE AS HOST FOR PILOT EPISODE OF CLASH OF TRADES
Read More 

Four student team finalists compete in the Project MFG National Challenge, a skilled trades competition, for a chance to win scholarships, prizes and title of national champion. The competition was filmed at each school in March and premieres as the pilot of Clash of Trades in April to celebrate National Welding Month. Hosting the show is Stephanie Quayle, Big Sky Music Group recording artist, CMT "Next Women of Country" inductee and entrepreneur.

The teams from Danville Community College, Calhoun Community College, Tennessee College of Applied Technology, and Southwestern Illinois College were selected based on rigorous judging of a complex advanced manufacturing project and conclude the 2020 competition series that was delayed due to COVID-19. Each team is comprised of current or recently graduated students who are learning a skilled trade. The teams work together in a challenge that mirrors real-world, hands-on skillsets needed to succeed in advanced manufacturing. 

The pilot episode of Clash of Trades premieres on YouTube on April 20, 2021, at 7 p.m CDT. The show will provide an engaging look at each team’s story and their approach to completing the challenge, which will be judged by a panel of expert judges and woven into the show format. The show intends to change the perception of the skilled trades by highlighting the stories of individuals entering the field and the high- tech, future-focused work being done in the U.S. manufacturing industry. Eligible trade students who register to view Clash of Trades on April 20 can enter a chance to win a $2500 scholarship (no purchase necessary, void where prohibited). 

The manufacturing industry is experiencing exponential change and new technologies are not eliminating jobs as some predicted. Studies have found the reverse – more jobs are being created (2018 skills gap in manufacturing study). The skills gap may leave more than 2 million positions unfilled if more young people don’t enter the skilled trades. The US Department of Defense declared this deficit as one of the most vital challenges for the US defense industrial base.

AMERICAN SONGWRITER: STEPHANIE QUAYLE EVOKES HER NATIVE LANDSCAPE WITH UPCOMING ALBUM
Read More 

Stephanie Quayle, a seasoned cowgirl, steps further into her artistry, bearing fruits from 2020. Hailing from Bozeman, Montana, the emerging country artist grew up working on a bison and cattle ranch. Looking at her mother’s gritted determination, Quayle refused minor setbacks and outdated industry standards to fence in her destined path to perform country music.  Recently named the First Female Country Music Ambassador for Bass Pro Shops & Cabela’s,  the artist reveals a new chapter in her music career with songs recorded remotely from familiar turf.

Quayle & producer and songwriter Alex Kline will be getting together on Wednesday, March 24 at 5 p.m. CT to host a FB livestream conversation about her latest collection of music, what it was like recording during the COVID pandemic, and being women in the industry. Tune in to Stephanie’s Facebook page or American Songwriter’s Facebook page to be a part of the chat.

Quayle’s latest single, “Wild Frontier,” is her love story. Released March 19, the galloping track is a forward step in her most intimate project to date. Recorded almost entirely virtually from home with breakout female producer Alex Kline, “Wild Frontier,” was written by a rock-solid team of Nashville tunesmiths—Maren Morris, Shane McAnally, and Ross Copperman. The lyrics transform her native landscape into a metaphor for the “unchartered territory” of newfound love. Though penned by others, the song story places the artist back where she first met her husband, David.

COUNTRY AIRCHECK: SKY IS LIMITLESS FOR QUAYLE, KANE
Read More 

The little Rebel Engine that did, Stephanie Quayle, took control of her career in 2013 through the launch of her own label and entertainment company. Quayle enlisted Carli McLaughlin Kane in 2015 and, by Oct. 2017, Kane was running the business. On the heels of announcing their more widely focused new venture Big Sky Music (CAT 2/2), the duo spoke with Country Aircheck about mission, identity and goals for 2021 and beyond. “This is something Carli and I had been discussing this past year – how much change we were wanting to create,” begins Quayle. “Things we wanted to leave behind, some of the lessons we’ve learned, what we envisioned as the next part of our business partnership.”

Quayle is the label’s flagship artist, although they’ve already received submissions, while Kane is running the company and eyeing expansion. “We’re putting in a structure and plans to take on more artists and be a home for great talent,” says Kane.

The mission of being a “safe, inclusive, supportive home” for artists and creators with an emphasis on collaboration was born from Quayle’s personal experience in the industry … good and bad. “It goes back to when I first moved to town,” she says. “People would come into my life and say, ‘You’re great, now let’s change everything.’” This, coupled with seeing young, female artists being signed, shelved and dropped, drove Quayle to create another way, not only for herself, but for others. “That was part of the [previous] name, I mean, I’m the little Rebel Engine,” she laughs.

STEPHANIE QUAYLE EMBRACES THE BOUNDLESS HORIZON WITH HER LATEST SINGLE "WILD FRONTIER"
Read More 

Big Sky Music Group recording artist, Stephanie Quayle, has released her latest single, "Wild Frontier," available now wherever you find great music. The track continues the story of Stephanie's journey through love which began with her latest release earlier this year, "By Heart." As she continues to evolve both personally and as an artist, she is inviting fans to join her every step of the way with her latest collection of music that tells a story of finding and fighting for love.  

LISTEN:      "Wild Frontier"

Recorded almost entirely virtually from home with breakout female producer Alex Kline, "Wild Frontier," was written by a team of powerhouse songwriters - Maren Morris, Shane McAnally, and Ross Copperman. The song explores the vast and limitless connection to those we love and that even through life's darkest and overwhelming moments, there's an unwavering anchor there to bring you back home.  

"I remember driving down that gravel road for the first time with my whole future on the horizon as the dirt and rocks kicked up behind me," says Stephanie. "I didn’t know my whole world would change that day as I headed towards my now husband. This song is my life, and Montana is the backdrop to our love story — it has been from the very start.  Wildly, the pens of Maren, Shane and Ross, captured the spirit of what we think is a legendary love. To be with someone and not need to “tame each other”— these words spoke to me.  And I know there are other couples out there that feel this kind of “no fences” love out there too. This song paints that vast picture that you can just get lost in." 

“‘Wild Frontier’ feels like an extension of ‘By Heart.’ So much so that we leaned into visually connecting the songs to tell this story in the artwork too,” shares Stephanie. “I’m definitely more vulnerable than I’ve ever been with this project -- even down to making sure we included that very gravel road that led me to love.”

Stay tuned for a third track from Stephanie this Spring which will round out the first chapter of her upcoming music collection where she continues exploring life and love.

WRANGLER: INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY - GRIT, MEET GRACE
Read More 

At 22 years old, singer-songwriter Stephanie Quayle had a moment of reckoning when she was told she was too old to break into the music business. “That just got branded into my brain because I never was raised to adhere to other people’s rules or fences,” recalls Quayle. Stepping up to the challenge with the ease of a seasoned cowgirl, Quayle formed her own label, Rebel Engine Entertainment, with a vision to empower talented women in the industry, some of whom were facing a myriad of challenges; for example, being sidelined and eventually dropped based on their perceived age value. “You can’t let anyone determine you’re done. You make that choice,” Quayle says. “That was one of the reasons I started my own company — to inspire that message of limitlessness.”

Quayle earned her tenacity, as well as her unbridled vision, growing up in Montana on a working bison and cattle ranch. “I was on the back of a horse before I could walk, you know? I was teeny tiny. You fall down, you’re in the dirt. My mom just dusted off my knees and put me back in the saddle and that was it. That’s just what I’ve done my whole life,” she says. For Quayle, her mom has been a model of resilience. “My mom taught me to ride horses. She is the west — grit and grace.” Even today, Quayle’s mom manages her own ranch. “She’s 72 years old. There’s no end to her. I think she’s my compass when it comes to choosing who to be like and become.” Now that she’s an adult, Quayle embodies the same spirit and determination as her mother, concentrating her efforts on forging a path for women in the entertainment industry. “What you see is women continuing to rise, create and do,” she says. “It’s one of the things I’ve really focused on — doing more and talking less. So that we show versus tell. Keep showing up and creating larger platforms for women in our genre. That’s very much my focus, that’s the hat I have on right now.” Quayle continues to lead by example by launching her new record label, management and entertainment company, Big Sky Music Group. The company is focused not only on signing top talent but also on providing mentorship to incoming talent, with a mission “to be a safe, inclusive and supportive home for artists and creators poised to positively impact female artists and young professionals starting out on their journey.” “I feel this is my purpose, my must. There’s such a need for more women to spread this message of, ‘No, you absolutely can and will.’ It doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy but who wants things to be easy?” Quayle emphasizes, “You gotta earn it. And then you get to own that. You know that you earned it. That’s a powerful way to walk through life. That’s grit and grace.” Visit www.bigskymusicgroup.com to learn more about Quayle’s recent endeavors.

COUNTRY NOW: STEPHANIE QUAYLE OPENS UP ABOUT NEW ERA OF MUSIC AND LATEST SINGLE, "BY HEART"
Read More 

Fans get a heavy dose of Quayle’s affectionate side in her recently released track, “By Heart.” The dreamy song, produced by respected Nashville producer Alex Kline, and recorded almost entirely virtually over the last 12 months, finds Quayle wanting to know more about the man she’s head over heels about.

“This song [By Heart] is simply complex. Love is supposed to be simple, and it’s also very complex…What’s interesting about [this song], is that, to me, it symbolizes the beginning of my relationship with my husband, but also, through the course of these last months, I’ve gotten to know him in ways that I never expected,” the Bozeman, Montana native and wife of David Couch, says in her bio, posted on her official website. “It’s that curiosity of wanting to know everything about the person you love; from start to, well, forever.”

"There are not enough words to describe how special it is to experience this together with my mom and to soak up every minute of her mentorship. It is a magical thing — riding is individual and can be a collective experience at the same time. The roads we will ride together are limitless!”

"There's a freedom and a new confidence that's now a part of me because of this journey," says Quayle. “I find a peace inside my helmet unlike anywhere else, so much so that I practiced singing 'By Heart' over and over again while riding before we headed into the studio.

AMERICAN SONGWRITER: STEPHANIE QUAYLE CAPTURES LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE WITH "BY HEART"
Read More 

Stephanie Quayle is a fairly new songwriter. Originally from Bozeman, Montana, the pop-country storyteller began releasing music with 2016’s “Drinking with Dolly” and co-wrote such songs as “Selfish,” “I’ve Got Your Six,” and “Post It” (from 2017’s debut record, Love the Way You See Me). But she didn’t start actively flexing her own songwriting muscles until about a year or two ago. 

“You get to see everything from the front view. You have to stay focused on what’s in front of you. I think that’s a really good metaphor for where I am,” Quayle tells American Songwriter of her songwriting journey. “Yes, everything in my rearview is still there, and I can look back and learn, but I’m really focused on what’s in front of me.”

It seems fitting 2020 would be the year of her greatest personal and professional growth. Locked in her home, like most of us, Quayle dug her heels into virtual songwriting sessions and deep introspection. She had nothing but time, after all.

“The three writers on this song are tremendous,” Quayle gushes to Everything Nash, “Anna Vaus, Cassidy Lynn and Ian Christian. That’s how I felt the first time I heard it. I was in New Orleans, in my little hotel room, and the song got sent over to us. I just was floored immediately.

TASTE OF COUNTRY: STEPHANIE QUAYLE'S STEEL GUITAR-SOAKED "I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS" IS AN ORIGINAL
Read More 

Stephanie Quayle's cover of the Christmas classic "I'll Be Home for Christmas" is nearly a duet, and it's certainly an original. Find yourself hanging on every beat during this Taste of Country premiere of her music video. The jazzy creation takes unexpected turns while never straying from its Christmas roots.

Vocally, Quayle lingers on notes you'd expect her to drop as she finishes phrases toward the end of this performance. These subtle twists make the song — a Christmas carol we've all heard thousands of times — quite unusual without sacrificing familiarity. Her steel guitarist really shines, however. From the very beginning of the video, he compliments the Montana native in the way another vocalist would, weaving between her lyrics before getting to lay down a solo that's simply enchanting.

Quayle says the challenges of 2020 inspired her to record the Christmas song.

"I think a lot of us are going to be experiencing a different kind of Christmas this year," she tells ToC. "Every time I think about this song, I think about not only coming home but also the longing to be home with my family, and just knowing that even if we can't be together, we're still together, if only in my dreams."

Bozeman, Mont., is home for Quayle. Growing up, she recalls memories of Christmas at her grandparents' cabin, strolls down Main Street and gatherings that inevitably led to singing around the piano. The career of a country singer doesn't allow for many annual traditions, but the holidays are always protected in the music industry. Now that she has her own family, she says, singing at the holidays is always a part of her Christmas tradition.

WATCH: "Untitled" - Part 2 of "From Horses to Horsepower" Series

"I have fallen in love with the feeling that I only experience when riding," says Stephanie. "I am overwhelmed by the sense of control, all that is in front of me -- I can explore new roads, find new adventures, and just make it up as I go along. There's a freedom in not having to have it all figured out, following my own instincts, and chasing the sun. I am in constant admiration of my mom's living example of staying curious.  Always challenging herself and leading with such confidence. I think I get that from my mama!"

The beautifully cinematic video watches Stephanie, alongside her favorite riding partner, take the seat of her Harley-Davidson® motorcycle as she explores the open road - venturing on paths untaken and finding new adventure around each bend. Setting the scene and capturing the unbridled spirit of the video is the inspiring new track from Stephanie, "Untitled," which reminds us of life's amazing freedom in "making it up as we go along."

LISTEN:  "Untitled"

Stay tuned as Stephanie's journey continues with the third and final installment of the "From Horses to Horsepower" series due out in early 2021.

Expect more new music from Stephanie out next year!
