Paulina Jayne Interview
By Big Al Weekley for Country Music News International Magazine & Radio Show
Paulina Jayne is a joyful, high-energy, people-loving entertainer, artist, songwriter and actress. She is often referred to as the “millennial Dolly Parton,” both on and off stage! “God blessed me on the lower half though!” says a smiling Paulina. Raised in Detroit and a Nashville resident, Paulina’s music is an urban country marriage of the storytelling elements of country, the edge of rock and roll, the danceability of pop and the introspection of folk.
Paulina oozes personality on stage. She is a moment-making performer, and her musicians are ready to fly off-the-cuff in a second’s notice. Paulina has opened for heavy-hitters like Sheryl Crow, Sam Hunt and Rascal Flatts and has shared Live Nation festival marquees all over the country with Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan. She has written with several #1 writers, including JT Harding, Shane McAnally, Bonnie Baker, Danny Orton and the list goes on.
Her autobiographical solo-write single, “Big Hair Bigger Dreams,” was the national Discovery pick on Shawn Parr’s ‘Across the Country’ syndicated radio show airing on over 50+ radio stations. Paulina’s single, “Love’s Gonna Always Win,” garnered over half a million streams and radio play on 68 stations internationally. “Drove By,” produced by Grammy Award-Winning engineer and producer, Mills Logan, has over 150,000 music video views and landed on CMT. Paulina made her Netflix debut singing her original music on “Top Grier” (Hayes Grier). She can also be seen in a nationwide Folgers Coffee commercial on ION Television Network broadcasting to over 100 million homes.
