"I grew up with cowboys -- always wanted to be one. This song highlights the toughness of the 'cowboy state of mind,' and as a Montana kid, I can't help but connect with the imagery,” shares Quayle. “The feel and messaging are a really unique juxtaposition of vulnerability and strength. I think we all want to be a cowboy... if this isn't universal, it should be!”
Co-written by Grammy-nominated hit songwriters Nicole Gallyon, Ross Copperman and Grammy-winning Shane McAnally, the song carries heavy lyrical weight. Quayle turned to Julian King, alongside executive producer and industry veteran Mark Wright, to produce the first taste of her forthcoming album (release date TBD). The trio have hit their stride in the studio blending baritone guitars with Quayle’s warm and powerful vocals drawing inspiration from the Montana native’s western roots.
Quayle is a newly inducted member of CMT's Next Women of Country class of 2019.
