About Payton

Payton Riley’s larger-than-life voice has been captivating audiences since she was nine years old. Her musical journey began almost immediately when her love for music and talent for singing was evident before she could talk. From voice lessons at seven to writing her own songs at nine, music has always been a central part of her life. She regularly travels to Nashville and Memphis to collaborate and write, adding to her already impressive list of original music. In 2022, her first release to Texas radio, “Long Live Cowboys,” earned her a coveted spot among the Texas greats. In 2023, at just 15 years old, Payton made Texas Country Music history by becoming the youngest-ever nominee for the Texas Country Music Association’s (TCMA) ‘Young Artist of the Year’ category, which she went on to win.

With goals as big as The Lone Star State, Payton aims to spread her music far and wide, serving as an inspiration to other young artists. Her faith in God guides her path as she seeks to uplift and encourage fellow musicians and fans alike. Known for her giving heart, sassy attitude, and captivating stage presence, Payton's original songs resonate with audiences of all ages.

Payton has graced big Texas stages at Sawyer Park, Dosey Doe, The Kenney Store, and most recently selling out The Table at Madeley during her single release party. She has shared the stage with Payton Howie and Ryder Grimes and will be adding to that list in the coming months.

Her current tour schedule has stops all over Texas and fans can catch a show by following her.
