Well to be determined, I’m on our farm in North Carolina, just north of Greensboro, it’s about seven hours from Nashville and so I’ve been there for the last about 100 days, which is crazy. I haven’t been in one place for this long in I think about twenty years (laughs), I’m always on the road. I’ve been doing a load of virtual concerts and virtual fan activities. I go to Nashville this week, I’ll go on Sunday and I’ll be there to record new music and do some different things there. It’ll be interesting to see how that feels, having to plan – like what door to go into the studio that no one else goes through. The part of music that I love the most is the community and us all being together, so the separate rooms that’s weird. The isolation booth for recording, yes but not being able to go back into the studio and listen as a group, it’ll all feel weird.
It's been a rough year for many since the coronavirus pandemic swept its way around the world at the start of 2020, eventually hitting the U.S. in mid-March. Country music artist, Stephanie Quayle, like many other performers, have had to shift and re-arrange their schedules once a lockdown and a new way of life was in place. However, a lingering question on everyone's minds is how will we all get back to the way things were, and how long will it take?
In an exclusive with PopCulture.com, Quayle admits she not only misses her band and is struggling with not being able to hug people, but despite the craziness, she's ready to create a new way for artists like herself to jump back in and give the fans a feeling of normalcy. "I miss my band, you know? I've been checking in on them regularly to make sure that they're good because it just went from like, we were booked for shows up until December, and it just got stopped in its tracks. So for me, It's like how do I make sure everyone's okay?" Quayle said.
Congregating in person for concerts is out of the question this spring and for the foreseeable future, so music fans have gotten used to watching performers livestream from home. What's less obvious is that segments of the Nashville music community that work out of view have been equally resourceful in finding virtual stopgaps during lockdown.
In the industry culture of Music City, fully booked and productive work days can have the appearance of neighborly socializing, so it only makes sense that many music-makers would look to shift their standard, three-hour co-writing appointments and studio sessions to videoconferencing in comfy clothes.
Among those working this way are Stephanie Quayle, a plucky, expressive country-pop singer and songwriter whose Montana roots make her partial to ranching and rodeoing imagery, and Alex Kline, the conservatory-trained composer and multi-instrumentalist producing Quayle's music.
Stephanie Quayle is making the most of the quarantine lockdown.
The CMT "Next Women of Country" 2019 inductee has been utilizing the time to create new opportunities to connect with her fans through her daily Facebook Live broadcast streaming series dubbed “Hay Y’all,” which Quayle films in a barn on her North Carolina property and, she said, “touches on heart, humor and country music.”
Growing up in a small town in Montana, a state which she refers to as ‘the little brother of Texas’, Quayle comes from a humble background. She accredits her love of country music to her mother, who used to sing to her often, and to the little silver radio in her horse barn which used to blast country music 24/7. After hearing several earworm songs by Shania Twain, Reba McEntire, and Willie Nelson among many other artists, Stephanie picked up the pen and began writing poetry.
At a time when the world is clamoring for things to take our minds off the coronavirus spreading across the globe, country artist Stephanie Quayle is answering our calls.
In an effort to offer encouragement and entertain fans, Stephanie has launched a daily morning talk show video series, Hay Y’all. The Facebook Live series was brought about to bring a smile to your face and relief to your mind.
During these uncertain times we are all looking for any glimpse of relief and just something to make us smile. Country music star, Stephanie Quayle, is hoping to do just that and provide a quick moment of levity during these difficult times. Stephanie is taking to Facebook Live and launching a daily morning talk show video series, “Hay Y’All.”
“Hay Y’All” will air live on Facebook Mondays thru Fridays at 11:00am ET.
Shot live from Stephanie’s North Carolina farm, Summerfield Farms, the series focuses on messages of positivity, music and includes the adorable miniature animals on her farm – donkeys, a calf, horses, goats, cats, and more – all named after famous Country Artists. Looking at this time in our lives as an emotional moment of “Spring Cleaning,” Stephanie is taking this opportunity to check-in with herself and fans and is embracing the moment to discover new things, take stock in the important things in life but always remembering to smile and have some fun!

ALL ACCESS is pleased to announce that REBEL ENGINE ENTERTAINMENT Country artist STEPHANIE QUAYLE has been booked to perform at next month’s WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT 2020 (WWRS) at THE CASTAWAY in BURBANK, CA

Country music star, Stephanie Quayle, has teamed up with iconic American company, Harley-Davidson®, for a three-part digital video series titled From Horses to Horsepower, debuting on May 3rd 2020, just in time for Mother’s Day.
Produced by Rebel Engine Entertainment, the series will follow Stephanie’s journey of learning to ride from a lifelong mentor, her mom. It was through her mother’s mentorship that Stephanie first fell in love with riding horses while growing up in Montana, and now her mother, a veteran Harley-Davidson Fat Boy® rider, will teach her how to master a motorcycle. With their shared love of freedom and the open road, riding strengthens their relationship outside of the traditional mother-daughter archetypes as Stephanie embraces and emulates her mother’s fearlessness and confidence in this new and exciting pursuit.
“It all started with a song. I wrote 'Evel Knievel' as an anthem of fearlessness to follow your dreams and take that leap of faith. I thought of my mom with all of the riding imagery, and couldn’t help but think of my own desire of wanting to get on a motorcycle. I felt this calling to conquer it and experience the joy and freedom that I know my mom feels every time she gets on her bike,” says Quayle.
She continues, “To learn from my mom, my greatest mentor, and share this new bond with her, means the world to me. There’s nothing like it. I’m so grateful to Harley-Davidson for capturing our journey, and hope the series inspires other women to try something new.”
Shot at a Harley-Davidson dealership in High Point, NC, and on Stephanie’s beautiful Summerfield Farms, located just outside of Greensboro, the series will show the shared cross-generational love and education for riding between this mother-daughter duo. Their authentic bond that developed from this hobby turned lifestyle gave these two women a deeper connection and provided a unique experience for them to share. Follow along as the project chronicles Stephanie’s own personal experience learning to ride and also spotlighting the stories of other female riders along the way.
