Country Girls Stealing Angels
All three descendants from famous folks, the girls of Stealing Angels have a very unique story of how they came together as a country music trio.
A long lost relative of Daniel Boone, Caroline Cutbirth had always dreamed of becoming a country music star. After struggling to make a solo career in Nashville, she finally came across Jennifer Wayne - a tennis guru with a striking country singing voice. While they both continued to strive for solo success, the two began writing music together.
In 2007, Caroline and Jennifer - who is the granddaughter of actor John Wayne - were approached by a TV producer looking to create a program called "All in the Genes," a reality show focused on the benefits and struggles of coming from a famous family. After searching for a third cast member, the producer introduced Tayla Lynn, the granddaughter of country music legend Loretta Lynn, to the mix.
Surrounded by country music and what comes with it since she was a little girl, Tayla shared the dream of becoming a singer and performer just like her potential "cast mates."
The country hopefuls decided against the reality show and continued focusing on solo careers. Songwriting and frequently practicing harmonies together, the girls realized that their chemistry could really shine on stage as a trio.
The group's debut single, "He Better Be Dead," was released in July and hit No. 59 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs list.
