Artists are constantly coming and going from Nashville’s biggest labels, but sometimes I question ‘Where are they now?’. The last couple of years we saw a member drop from Love and Theft, the breakup of Edens Edge, and the separation of Steel Magnolia.
One of my favorite up and coming groups a few years ago was Stealing Angels. The trio consisting of Caroline Cutbirth, Tayla Lynn, and Jennifer Wayne had the voices of angels, fitting of the trio’s name. Of course, they had a little kick-ass attitude with a granddaughter from John Wayne, a descendant of Daniel Boone and a granddaughter of Loretta Lynn in the group. Signed to Skyville Records, the group released three singles that had them opening for the likes of Tim McGraw. Shortly after the announced break-up in 2011, Tayla married and became a mother, then Jennifer and Caroline joined the cast of the Amazing Race season 22.
Where are they now?
MusicRow announced that Tayla Lynn, granddaughter of the legendary Loretta Lynn had signed an independent deal. She has signed with Victor House Records and will be releasing a Vinyl EP on April 19th (Record Store Day). One side will have a duet with the singer’s grandmother; the other a song titled ‘Coal Dust’ about being in the Lynn family. To promote the release, Lynn will perform at Ernest Tubb’s Record Shop in downtown Nashville. As a turn of events, it appears that none other than Jenn and Caroline will be joining her on stage for the release!

After being a crowd favorite on the Amazing Race 22, Jen and Caroline released a single to iTunes. Not even a year after their last time on the show, the duo was asked to return to the Race and are currently competing for a million dollars on the Amazing Race: All Stars. You can watch ’em every Sunday on CBS.
A few years ago, the Angels met up with an aspiring singer-songwriter at CMA Fest in Nashville. This picture is Stealing Angels with the little-known singer.
Yup, that’s Eric Paslay and the Angels in 2011. It appears that they became friends because his debut album (released earlier this year) features a cut co-written with none other than Jennifer Wayne! “She Don’t Love You” is one of my favorite’s from the disc – you can buy the song on iTunes.
On behalf of everyone on the CMchat team, I would like to wish the best to Jennifer, Caroline, and Tayla. We can’t wait to see what happens next in your careers. Here’s a look at back…
