  • PRISCILLA BLOCK PAYS TRIBUTE TO TAYLOR SWIFT AT LAST NIGHT’S NATIONAL MUSIC PUBLISHERS’ ASSOCIATION EVENT.

    Priscilla Block paid tribute to her musical influence, Taylor Swift, as the 2021 National Music Publishers’ Association honored the global superstar with the Songwriter Icon Award on Wednesday.

    Priscilla turned in a perfect medley of a few of Taylor’s early hits, including “Tim McGraw,” “Teardrops On My Guitar” and “Sparks Fly.” Check it out below.

    During Taylor’s virtual acceptance speech, she spoke about why the acknowledgement from the NMPA is so meaningful to her.

    “It honors the part of my job that is so magical and mystifying to me still,” she said of the award. “I love songwriting so much because there’s an element to it that’s still really mysterious.”

    “I think any songwriter will tell you when you get an idea, you’re not quite sure where it floated down from,” she continued. “But if you can grab onto that idea and turn it into something — a piece of music — that’s where craftsmanship comes in. And that’s where you have the opportunity to learn and to nurture that craft.”

    Priscilla is currently making her way up the country charts with “Just About Over You.”

    In early 2020, Priscilla was struggling to make ends meet after losing her job and her apartment. Unable to get out and play in person due to Covid-19, Priscilla began experimenting on TikTok and quickly developed a rabid fanbase with songs like “Thick Thighs,” “PMS” and “Just About Over You.” Fans rallied together to independently fund Priscilla’s recording and since its release, “Just About Over You” peaked both the iTunes Country and All-Genre song charts, the song was named one of The New York Times Best Songs of 2020, it is now playing on country radio, Priscilla’s streaming has topped 75 million and her self-titled major label debut EP is out April 30th.

    Originally from Raleigh, NC, Priscilla moved to Nashville to pursue music shortly after high school. In Nashville, the affable, hardworking, student of life worked multiple jobs to make ends meet, then a chance encounter with her idol – Taylor Swift – was the sign she needed to dive all the way in on her music. Priscilla is a seasoned performer playing sold-out shows across the southeast including Deep South the Bar in Raleigh, the storied Listening Room Cafe, and Nashville’s rowdiest block party, Whiskey Jam. Priscilla has also shared the stage with artists including Gabby Barrett, Adam Craig and Adam Doleac.

    “This EP is such a vulnerable side of who I am and where I’ve been,” shares Priscilla. “It’s my story of falling apart in order to find myself again.

Named an artist to watch by Amazon, Pandora, Spotify, HITS, CMT Next Women of Country and more, Priscilla wrote each of the six tracks featured on the PRISCILLA BLOCK EP including one of The New York Times Best Songs of 2020 and her current country radio single, “Just About Over You,” and her brand-new song out today, “Wish You Were The Whiskey.” Priscilla’s grassroots, fan-first approach continues as she plans to share the full track list via her socials in the weeks leading up to the April 30th EP release.

  • CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY — MONDAY, MARCH 8TH.

    Monday (February 8th) is International Women’s Day, which is a global day celebrating

    the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. International Women’s Day has been observed since the early 1900’s.

    Many of your favorite female country artists are also celebrating this day in honor of women everywhere and of their influences and inspirations.

    Audio / Carrie Underwood talks about her amazing professional influences.

    Carrie Underwood (Musical influences) OC: …do it too. :54
    “I think my biggest influences musically, or career-wise, would have to be women like Reba, like Dolly, like Faith Hill, like Martina McBride. You see all of these women just juggle everything masterfully and many of them are moms and they’re superstars and they’re talented, and you know, I know how hard they work because I’m in their shoes somewhat and doing the same juggling. You know, you have the kids and the career and you’re just trying to crush everything you do and being pulled in a million different directions. And to see women like that who are just beautiful and smart and strong and talented, knowing that they have come first and they’re still getting to do what they love and they’re still getting to be the mom and the wife and all the things – that’s just such an inspiration to me and just lets me know that I can do it too.”

She was the first person that I was around that really taught me what it was like to be a woman, to be a Mom, to be a wife, to be a daughter and a sister. And just watching her and how she did everything with grace and integrity and she’s so strong. I mean, she was just the best role model anybody could have ever had.”

    “My first concert ever was Loretta Lynn. I was 13 years old and I got to see her in Columbus, Georgia. I begged my Dad to bring me, and I just remembered sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what she’d sing or say next. Loretta Lynn has been such an inspiration to me and all of the women who came before me – Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, all the way to Miranda Lambert and the legends of today. It’s unreal how many amazing women I have been given in this world to look up to.”

It was my first concert ever, and I will always remember sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to just see what she was gonna sing or say next. The power she had on stage is something you don’t see much; there’s a magic there. I think that when a woman tells her story – a woman like Loretta Lynn – everyone should listen.”

I‘m just so very grateful that not only do I have women that have paved the way for us coming up in the country music industry, but I also have amazing women around me that I get to celebrate every single time that they put a new song out or win an award. I feel like I’ve found a family in country music, in the women of country music and I just couldn’t be more grateful.”

You are really good at living in the moment, I feel like; very good at being present and I always pick that up from you every time we hang out. (TAE SAYS, “Your joy inspires me.”) My mom, she is just a baddie and amazing. I would say our manager Haley. She is just so great at balancing work life and family life, and I really admire that. And I would say, I don’t know. All the women in my life – my sister, my sister-in-laws, my mother-in-law. I love ‘em all. My grandma…everybody!”

We were all the way up in the nosebleed section, and the announcer says, ‘Please rise as 10-year-old LeAnn Rimes sings the National Anthem,’ and that was before ‘Blue’ came out. I was already stuck on her, and then when ‘Blue’ came out, I was just like done.”

    Mickey Guyton (on pursuing a career as a singer) OC: …all those people. :50
    “It wasn’t like something where I was like, ‘Dad, I want to be a professional singer.’ It wasn’t until I was older when I finally admitted it. When you say something like that, it’s pretty crazy. What are we normally supposed to be? We’re supposed to be a teacher, a doctor, a lawyer, go to school and for me to even say that was just kind of crazy. So, I took an interest in singing. I started doing solos in the church choir or the school had a talent show. I’d bring my boom box, and I’d sing ‘I Will Always Love You.’ I was just mesmerized by big-voiced women, so from LeAnn, I started listening to Dolly and Patsy Cline and Patty Loveless and Reba McEntire and Faith Hill and Martina McBride, all those people.”

    Priscilla Block may have been discovered on the social app Tik Tok singing songs, but she knew at a young age music was going to be her career path. She began her journey before she could even drive a car.

    “Because I wasn’t going to be a doctor, I wasn’t going to be a lawyer. I mean I wasn’t the schoolgirl. I wasn’t, at all, ever,” says Priscilla. “You know, I picked up the guitar when I was 15 and I started writing songs, and immediately I knew that was what I wanted to do, and I was like, ‘I think I’m kinda good at this.’ And, what better place to go to than Nashville, baby?”

    Priscilla, who was just named as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country, is currently scaling the country charts with her single, “Just About Over You.”
