Taylor Moss has dropped limited edition ‘Country Proud’ candles to celebrate her latest single of the name kicking goals on the Countrytown Hot 50 Airplay Chart.
The candles come in the winter scents hot jam donut, butterscotch pudding, blueberry cobbler and hazelnut latte.
In August 2022, Moss announced her new line of candle merchandise. The candle brand is named after her hit single.
“GET IT GIRL CANDLE CO,” she wrote. “My new merchandise! Hand made by me. I’ve been waiting to share these with you! Been busy in [Victoria] making candles and I’ve already sold out of my first batch.”
Additionally, Moss also has ‘Get It Girl’ candles in scents coconut and lime, watermelon, one million and vanilla caramel still available for purchase here.
All the money made from the sale of the candles goes directly into funding Moss’ independent music career. Previous limited edition and now sold-out candles include holiday scents such as Christmas pine, spiced pumpkin latte and hot baked apple pie, as well as cocktail scents in mojito, sex on the beach, lychee guava martini and piña colada.
Made from soy wax with 33 hours of burn time, the candles are priced at $30.
Released in April, Country Proud peaked at #3 on the Countrytown Hot 50 Airplay Chart, where it currently sits at #4 after four weeks on the chart.
Reuniting with the production team of powerhouse, hit-making duo MSquared (Michael Delorenzis and Michael Paynter) who also co-wrote the single with Alys Ffion and Moss, the track is a foot-stomping anthem, celebrating the simple joys of life in the countryside.
Moss says, “The lyrics paint a vivid picture of the red dirt roads, sprawling fields, and close-knit communities that define rural living. The song celebrates the hardworking and honest country folks who know how to have a good time, whether it's at a backyard barbecue or a Friday night bonfire. Country Proud is a tribute to the timeless values and traditions that make the countryside such a special place.”
2023 is shaping up to be a special one for Moss, with her consecutive top 10 Airplay hits across several releases securing her a Golden Guitar nomination for ‘New Talent Of The Year’ in January. She also received an APRA Award nomination for ‘Most Performed Country Work’ for her #1 Airplay hit, Get It Girl and her first Queensland Music Award nomination in the ‘Country’ category for her additional airplay triumph, What Am I Gonna Do? which reached #5 on the charts.
Born in Ulladulla NSW, Moss started entering local talent contests as a child. Inspired by her Mum, the lead singer in the stage show called The Entertainers, Moss used to sit side stage during rehearsals and dream of being a performer. She made her first recording at age 15 in AC/DC’s Sydney studio. A guitar gifted from her late uncle guided her towards songs with stories at their epicentre, performed by musicians with heart.
After moving to Noosa QLD, she got her break at Urban Country Music Festival 2012, winning their talent quest and made finalist at Tamworth’s prestigious 2015 Toyota Star Maker competition. Supports with Jimmy Barnes followed along with further shows at Tamworth and Gympie Muster.
