Hello! I’m Stacie - I’m a Christian, married to my soulmate Paul for over 15 years. Together we have 5 children and 8 grandchildren. I’m a registered nurse unable to work due to battling multiple chronic illnesses for years. However, I strived not to stand on the sidelines, to find something to fill my time that I was equally passionate about. Aside from spending time with my family & friends, riding our Harley, traveling, and camping - I fill that void with music!

I am a lover of all genres, with a passion for country! In March 2020, I decided that I wanted to start my own social media platform. With no musical talent but an absolute love of talking :) I created Rt66CountryMusic. 

 

“Talk and Tunes” is my main show, hosted each Tuesday and Thursday at 1:30 pm EST. These interviews include interviewing artists and singer-songwriters, who perform their original music and are accompanied by a full-day IG takeover to showcase 'a day in the life of' that individual.

 

“The Other Side” is hosted on Wednesdays at the same time and focuses on other areas of the music industry. This may include anyone from members of the band, record label executives, management, and PR, to photographers and road/stage crews. No matter what their role, these individuals are integral to an artist's success and deserve to be showcased too!

Hey Everyone! My name is Rachel & I am the Founder of the UK-based company, Scarlet River PR. I grew up in Wales, UK, and was a worship team leader in my local church. I was always surrounded by and loved music but I didn't have any initial desires to be a part of the industry. I went to University to study Anatomy and Human Biology, followed by a master's degree and, I am currently 2 years into my Ph.D. in Neuroscience. However, throughout it all, I fell in love with the music industry. After helping an old friend with his debut release, which led to multiple award nominations, and gig dates in the US, UK, and mainland Europe, I knew I belonged in music and wanted to make a career of it! And so, Scarlet River PR came to be! 

 

I am so excited to be a part of the Rt66 team and cannot wait for all that the venture holds!

Howdy from Austin, Texas!

I’m excited to have joined Rt66 to support independent country artists. I grew up singing in church, eventually taking some music classes in college because my dream was to write for a music magazine. As I child, I’d draw album covers, makeup song titles for the album, and then write liner notes and review songs that didn’t exist. I think I started writing songs just so I’d have something to review.

 

I've utilized my journalism degree throughout the years doing freelance work. 

When I turned 30, I decided to become an actress and started doing community theater shows, mostly musicals so I could sing. Folks I met at the theater got me a stint as their church worship leader, and I volunteered there until I moved to Austin in 2006.

Once I moved, I didn’t have a church to sing in, so I started singing in local cafes and coffee shops. This led me to be the lead singer in a classic rock cover band, which led to me forming a folk music acoustic trio. After both of those bands had fizzled, I formed a duo with Joey, a guy I met at a songwriting competition in 2017, and whom I married in November 2019. Joey’s been a tremendous influence on my music and my life, and I’m so thrilled to have him along for the ride.

During the pandemic, I started listing to a lot of music online and found Rt66 Country Music.  It has been so fun to watch the artists’ interviews, see their videos, and hear some great music I never would have found otherwise. I really love the curated New Music Friday playlist. Thanks to Stacie and her team for getting the music out there.
