Weknowthedj checks-in with Payton Rae!

January 11, 2013

She’s only seventeen and is already proving that 2013 is going to be her year! Payton Rae is about to take over the music world even more than she already has. The blonde beauty from Texas has won the heart people all over the world; she has 158,000 Twitter followers, almost 77,000 Facebook likes and over 8 million YouTube views. The seventeen year old is home-schooled because it gives her more time to focus on her music career and makes travelling between Texas and Nashville easier. While she might not have the same high school experience as you, there’s plenty of other ways to relate to her. Tweets like “Algebra 2…. UGH!!!!!!” and “The fact that Pretty Little Liars comes back on tonight>>>” prove that Payton Rae is a normal teenager, just like many of you. Recently, Payton was featured in Seventeen Magazine where she was named one of the topics to keep you most entertained on cold winter days. I promise that once you start watching her videos on YouTube, you won’t be able to stop. These videos are so entertaining that the Houston native has been nominated for The 2012 Yallwire Video Awards for Best New Artist Video for “Stomp the Fire Out,” you can vote at https://www.facebook.com/questions/10152091295616393/

Payton has also become the face of Alyce Paris, a dress designer who makes beautiful dresses. If you’re one of our readers looking for a prom dress for this year, be sure to check them out. With the help of Alyce Paris, Payton Rae has recently been featured in Seventeen Prom wearing a yellow high-low dress and Teen Prom wearing a pink sparkly dress that just screams Southern Belle. Along with Alyce Paris, Payton Rae visited New York City where she saw her spreads for the first time, visited VEVO, attended a fashion show and sang Country Strong beautifully. There’s a video of this trip, showing the quirky side of Payton below, so be sure to check that out!


While Payton wasn’t busy travelling between Texas, Nashville and New York City this holiday season, she was teaming up with trio 3Union for a charity project called “Two is Better Than One.” Any funds raised benefit Shepherd Community Center in Indianapolis, Houston Children’s Charity in Houston and the “Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital” at Vanderbilt in Nashville. Below is the video of Payton giving back this holiday season and showing the world what the holidays are really about.

2012 was a year of writing music for Payton Rae but this year it’s all about recording! Between recording and projects with Alyce Paris, it’s safe to assume that Payton Rae might be Texas’ busiest teen this year. She can’t legally buy a lottery ticket yet but my guess is that by the end of 2013, Payton Rae is going to feel like she won more than just the lottery. Below are all the links to Payton’s various websites so be sure to check those out and keep your eyes open for more from the blonde superstar!
