Files coming soon.
Abby Payne is a 18-year-old award winning Western and Gospel Music performer. Many renowned musicians have deemed Abby as an extremely talented multi-instrumentalist and a perfect pitch vocalist with gifted ability in harmony. In 2013, she became an active performing member of the Cowtown Opry Buckaroo youth organization, as she was not born into a family of musicians but sought out a music family of mentors and peers in which she could develop and cultivate her gifts. As a performing member of the International Music Association she has been given many opportunities for professional growth and serves as the current Youth Chapter President. In 2019 she was a featured performer of the IWMA Youth Chapter Showcase at the Arizona Folklore Preserve and a featured performer at the 2019 Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering. When not participating in music events, she enjoys playing and singing in the band at church or at home with family.
