Think spicy meets Country Music….
A prolific songwriter, singer, performer, musician, and yes, even a single mother. Amy Taylor has rocked the stages with Chris Young, Trent Tomlinson, Luke Bryan, John Rich, Cole Swindell, Florida Georgia Line, Parmalee, and Corey Smith just to name a few. She has sung live the duet made famous by Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn “After The Fire Is Gone” with Daryle Singletary and has been mentioned on the “BIG SHOW” with John Boy & Billy. She has been nominated twelve years in a row for Georgia-Country female artist of the year, was Georgia-Country artist of the month in April 2010, and nominated three years in a row for the Georgia Music Awards as Female Country Vocalist. She currently has an endorsement deal with CMG Guitars. Check out their new guitar and amplifier line. WWW.CMGGUITARS.COM
There are two sides to every story, as the old adage goes, and there are certainly two sides to the story of Amy’s country music career. Her producer and long-time friend Johnny Garcia (who just happens to be the lead guitarist for country music iconic legends Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood) owns a publishing company on music row where Amy gets to write and collaborate with some of the best writers in town, “Johnny is one of the few people I trust in this industry, he’s my rock. I’m very blessed I get to work with him and call him a friend,” Amy says.
Amy created her first released digital EP “Rearview” for the heartbreaks and dating mistakes (we’ve all been there). Her extremely versatile powerhouse voice makes any country girl proud and her musical persona is loved by many other genre listeners and fans. This is one album you’ll want to keep on your playlist!
“I tend to write music that relates to what I’m going through at that point in my life. It keeps the substance and content portrayed through the recordings real. We all know that dating today is hard in a world full of distractions. So, at the time I wrote ‘Rearview’ and ‘Poison’, myself (along with a couple of friends), were in some pretty toxic relationships. I chose to add ‘Dear Heart’ to this album to balance it with a soft, vulnerability that isn’t heard much throughout my projects,” Amy says. She adds, “Then I chose to add ‘Lonely Gone Wrong’. I think the title speaks for itself! We have ALL been there! These four songs are put together to tell a story. I hope that story is conveyed through to the listeners and hopefully is universally relatable to them all.”
Her next project will hopefully be finished by the spring of 2021.
“I’m super excited about this next project! I’m done with all the sad, lonely, heartbreak songs. There’s no more time for any of that! This is a new season in my life. So, this next project is going to be super fun, upbeat, something to chill out by the pool and listen to or bring to the beach along with you and your friends. It’s going to be completely different from anything I’ve ever done and I can’t wait to share it!”
It is no surprise that Amy Taylor is shattering the usual industry formulas because nothing about her entertainment career has been normal. Like idols before her, she travels the musical highway that spans from her hometown to Nashville’s famed Broadway Street and Music Row.
Raised in a “blink and you’ll miss it” small town in Southeast Georgia on a thousand-acre farm Amy Taylor learned the true values of life. She gives her grandparents the most credit for her raising. “My parents had full-time jobs, so I spent all of my days with my grandparents. I learned a lot growing up on a large farm. Not only about life and how to take care of myself, but how to treat others with respect as well. We believe in ‘The Golden Rule’ down here in the South. I never knew what the confined boundaries of a city were, I had no neighbors; I ran free and life was great! My roots were planted and yet, I had wings to fly,” says Amy.
Not only did her grandparents teach her about life and religion, but they introduced her to country music and the Grand Ole Opry. Amy Taylor had Music City aspirations at an early age. Her grandfather was a church deacon and song leader so she started singing in church as a young child. Asked at age five what she wanted to be when she grew up she replied, “I already AM a country music singer, but I just don’t get to be on stage much!”
Backed by her family and armed with a guitar with an affinity for music by country’s iconic leading legends, Amy enters every recording project dedicated to achieving perfection.
Everything about Amy Taylor is multi-dimensional, her penchant for fusing musical genres, her multi-faceted voice, and her contrasting personas. Is it any wonder then that the life and career of this artist is equally colorful and intriguing?
