Payton Rae, the 18-year old country music star whose global fan base has generated over 13 million YouTube hits for her music and videos, is poised to release her next project. Gone Girl, a four-song EP of original music, is scheduled for release on December 17. A video for the title track, “Gone Girl”, will debut exclusively through Seventeen magazine’s site, seventeen.com, on November 25. The “Gone Girl” Tour, a series of promotional appearances and performances sponsored by renowned formal wear designer/manufacturer ALYCE Paris, will kick off in January 2014.
Gone Girl was produced by two acclaimed Nashville music veterans, award-winning songwriter Odie Blackmon and Grammy-award winning producer, songwriter and musician Kenny Greenberg. The new project presents a departure of sorts for the young artist: “Since my last EP two years ago, I feel I have grown as a writer, and am discovering who I want to be as an artist,” said the teen star. “Obviously, that’s not an easy thing – it takes time and a lot of experimenting. If I could say anything about the new music on Gone Girl, it would be that all of these songs really portray who I am now – they fit me perfectly.”
“Getting the opportunity to write with hit songwriters like Odie, Kenny and Liz Rose was an experience I will never forget,” Payton said. “I would bring my ideas into a songwriting session and they would bring the song to life, taking a good idea and making it great! This project wouldn’t be what it is without them.”
“ALYCE Paris has been such a blessing in my career; I have never felt so much support from a group of people,” said Payton Rae, brand ambassador for the internationally respected dress designer both last year and in 2014. “They are like family to me. They are always willing to do anything and everything tohelp me achieve my goals. Along with being an amazing support system for me, they are also true innovators in the fashion industry. Their dresses absolutely blow me away – they truly make a statement for anyone who wears them.”
The ALYCE Paris-sponsored “Gone Girl” promotional tour will kick off in Chicago on Jan 20; stops in Boston, Columbus, OH and Augusta, SC will take place, withadditional cities (and further details about the tour) announced at PaytonRaeMusic.com.
