ASHEBORO N.C. (RCPL) – Over 13 years ago, Stephanie Quayle experienced a profound tragedy when the love of her life died in a fiery plane crash.

But what she thought was the worst day of her life soon turned surreal: as she was stumbling through the layers of grief, pain and confusion, a shocking story came to light: she was not the only woman in his life.

Over time, she dug deep, transcended the pain, found her voice again and with collaborator Tori Tullier, created On the Edge, an eight-song album charting her path from a life shattered to the place of grace where she finds herself today.

Quayle and Tullier will perform the entire album followed by a Q & A in a Friends of the Library Sunset Signature Series event at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 10, in downtown Asheboro’s historic Sunset Theatre.

The performance is free and the public is invited. The Sunset Signature Series is sponsored by the Heart of North Carolina Visitors Bureau, City of Asheboro and the Friends of the Randolph County Public Libraries.

Quayle is a country music recording artist and a repeat performer at the Grand Ole Opry. In 2019, she was named as a member of that year’s class of the CMT Next Women of Country.

Her songs have hit the Billboard Country Airplay chart twice, and her last three singles have reached 100 million listeners on Country Music radio. On tour, she has shared the stage with Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Watson, Gabby Barrett and others.

She has appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show and Ellen, and was named an “Artist to Watch” by Rolling Stone Country.

Quayle grew up on a farm in Montana, where her family raised bison and cattle, kept drafting and riding horses, and grew alfalfa. She came to music early, starting with piano lessons.

Her creativity flourished in the form of stories, poems and songs and making music on piano and guitar. On graduating high school, she moved to California to pursue a music career, working day jobs and performing wherever she could.

After the trauma she experienced, she moved to Nashville and saw her songs hit the charts as she gained industry accolades.

Quayle is married to businessman David Couch, an Asheboro native.

The Sunset Theatre is located at 234 Sunset Avenue. For further information, contact the Heart of North Carolina Visitors Bureau at 800-626-2672.
