Big Sky Music recording artist and Montana cowgirl, Stephanie Quayle will perform in concert with her full band as part of the Wrangler COWGIRL 30 Under 30 Empowered Gala that takes place at Hotel Drover in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards on March 4, 2022.
The Friday night concert will be for an audience of invited guests and the 2022 class of COWGIRL 30 Under 30, who will be honored at the Gala.
Quayle will perform a series of her best-known songs as well as her newest collection. Recorded almost entirely virtually during COVID-19, the latest releases, “Wild Frontier,” “By Heart,” “We Buy Gold,” “Lone Ranger,” and “I Want the World for You,” define a new era in Quayle’s musical journey. With a strong dose of Western, an emphasis on baritone guitar and a frisky put-it-out there candor, the singer-songwriter leans straight into what’s on her mind.
“I grew up with cowboys, and I consider my mom the greatest cowboy I’ve ever known,” Quayle explains. “It’s not about gender, it’s a state of mind. Growing up like that, it showed me how much of a gap there is in cowboy culture versus everywhere else.
The skyrocketing musical talent is well known on the stages of country music. Rolling Stone Country named her “An Artist You Need to Know,” CMT tapped Quayle as part of their “Next Women of Country” franchise, The Kelly Clarkson Show featured Quayle as a performer and guest, her last three singles garnered over 100 million audience impressions, and the Grand Ole Opry has hosted her on numerous occasions.
Quayle will also serve as a keynote speaker at the Wrangler COWGIRL 30 Under 30 Empowered Gala, sharing her experience as a ranch-raised cowgirl making it in the recording industry.
The Empowered Gala will take place amidst the rustic-luxe grandeur of The Barn, Hotel Drover’s warmly appointed and intimate special events venue. Honorees of the COWGIRL 30 Under 30 class of 2022 will be treated to a Hotel Drover veranda cocktail reception and red-carpet entry beginning at 6:00 PM, followed by the Empowered Gala inside. Guest speakers will include event sponsors from COWGIRL, Wrangler, Montana Silversmiths, Charlie 1 Horse Hats, Durango Boots, Cavender’s, and The Cowboy Channel.
The private live concert featuring Stephanie Quayle will begin at 9:00 PM.
