NORTH WILDWOOD — Payton Taylor has been named by NBC affiliate, WSMV-TV in Nashville as one of the top three emerging female artists in country music.
This summer, Taylor’s second Hometown Tour will take her through the heart of the Jersey Shore, in North Wildwood.
July 26, Taylor will perform at 8 p.m. at the Lou Booth Amphitheater, Second and Ocean avenues.
Taylor’s unique blend of both modern and traditional styles of country music will appeal to long-time attendees of the concert series and to a new generation of music fans in the area as well.
The Lou Booth concert series traditionally hosts Doo-Wop groups, tribute artists, and big bands, so this is really something new.
Fans in attendance will be among the first to be able to purchase Taylor’s recently released CD, entitled “Proud,” which was released on June 25. It’s a collection of six songs the 17-year-old singer/songwriter penned herself, with long-time co-writer, Joe Caliva.
Payton Taylor’s performance at the Lou Booth Amphitheater is free to the public.
