Tiffany Woys just released her fun and fiery debut single ‘Priceless’ and we can’t get enough of it!
Penned by Emily Shackleton, Mickey Guyton, and Kelly Archer, the track is a female-powered proclamation that there is no need to “settle” when it comes to love.
“When listeners hear ‘Priceless’ for the first time, I want them to know that there is no settling in love,” says Woys. “Everyone deserves to be treated well in a relationship. Everyone deserves that great big, crazy love. I want all girls to be listening to this. Don’t settle. Fall in love the right way, and if he’s not it, keep going.”

It’s finally here! I'm unbelievably excited to be releasing my debut single, which has been five years in the making! Though my journey has had many unexpected twists and turns, I have learned so much about myself and the importance of hard work. Making your dreams come true against all the odds is truly #priceless. I hope you enjoy listening to the song (link in bio) as much as I enjoyed recording it. I love you all so much! XOXO, Tiffany Woys 💕
Celeb Secrets: You’ve been doing music from a very young age. What first got you into in and inspired you to turn it into a career?
Tiffany Woys: I started when I was 4 or 5. Definitely watching Celine Dion growing up, I know that’s such an unconventional answer for country music, but it’s just what I realized I wanted to be, a vocalist and an entertainer. I started going to concerts at a really young age, around 6 or 7, and then I just realized that’s exactly what I wanted to do was be on stage and then as I got older that’s when I started to discover other genres and more music. Then I landed on LeAnn Rimes and country music. Even then it was more like the vocalist route where I wanted to be on stage so I started doing things around town like community theatre or even cheerleading, anything that could be in front of an audience. Because Sacramento didn’t really have a lot of options for music, anything I could do to be in front of people and perform was pretty much what I wanted to do.
Celeb Secrets: Your EP is coming out in early 2019. What can we expect from that?
Tiffany Woys: So its been about 5 or 6 years in the making. I’m not writing songs right now, I’m kind of going along the lines of really just wanting to find the best music to release. I know right now we’re in this singer-songwriter time, which is really amazing, but there are so many songs out there that just aren’t getting heard and I would love to just be a vehicle for that. Along the way over the past 5 or 6 year I’ve been getting pitched songs and we work them up, we toss them, work them up, toss them, and now we’ve just come down to 4 songs and they kind of tell a story. For me country music has been built on the idea of love songs that are good or bad, that’s just the storytelling that everyone can relate to. These songs kind of in order tell the story of my journey of finding love, to losing it, to starting it all over again. That’s what I’m really excited to share is that story of the EP with people.
Celeb Secrets: What’s your proudest moment from making the record?
Tiffany Woys: Finally getting people to hear it I think, just because it’s been so long and I’ve been anxious. This whole process has just kind of taught me patience and that you don’t want to release something too soon or do something that you’re not going to be able to be super proud of to put your name on at the end of the day. Now I just feel like I’m super ready to put it out there and just to get people to hear it.
Celeb Secrets: Since we’re “Celeb Secrets” can you share one behind the scenes secret from making ‘Priceless’ that fans wouldn’t know just by hearing the song?
Tiffany Woys: What’s so funny is when I had chosen that song I didn’t know that it was going to relate so much to my life that I’m living right now and that’s something that I think is a secret that not a lot of people know about. I was in this really big relationship while I was choosing ‘Priceless’ and I didn’t think that through a huge breakup and then going in to record it that I would be starting this dating process all over again and realizing “Oh great, here’s the beginning of it all over again.” You have to know your worth and know what you deserve as a girl, and even as a guy. But I think that’s something that not a lot of people would know is that I’m living that right now.
Celeb Secrets: You grew up in Sacramento, CA and moved to Nashville earlier this year. How have you liked living in Music City so far and how has it advanced your career as an artist?
Tiffany Woys: Oh my goodness it’s never felt more like home than anywhere I’ve ever lived. I love Sacramento, CA and it will always be my home but moving to Nashville has been the best experience of all time. I would never take it back for even a second. Being here has really helped me in country music just being able to network and meet people and being in the community and getting integrated in by going to shows. That was something I didn’t get to experience a lot in California, going to live shows everyday of the week if I really wanted to and meeting writers and people who were recording music. All of that’s been the best and that’s what I really love about Nashville is that it’s a tight knit community. Coming from California you don’t get that. I’m such a people person and I love meeting people and getting to know them, which is why I wanted to do music to begin with. As an artist Nashville makes you want to be better and work harder. There’s so much talent. We’re all big fish in a small pond in our hometowns and then you come here and it just a million fish in a very big pong and you have to find your way and find your voice. That’s been a lot of fun for me, pushing myself to work harder. It’s only increased my passion knowing that’s what I want to do.
Celeb Secrets: Disneyland has been a huge inspiration and influence on you. Can you give us the backstory on that?
Tiffany Woys: I’ve been brought up going to Disneyland since I was an infant. I’ve gone over 100 times. People always think it’s weird as an adult that I’m always still so passionate about Disney, but the company in itself , what it represents and everything that they’re involved in, they’re all about making your dreams come true and kind of living this intimate life dream world. Nothing is too big to aspire to be and that’s what Disney is for me in the sense of music. Nothing is too big or too far out of reach if you just have the right work ethic and the right passion. Nashville is just the big Disneyland for music, a huge playground for people who have a passion and dream really big, which is why I’ve always stayed so close to Disney because of what their message is and it ties into what I want to do now.
Celeb Secrets: Some of your biggest inspirations are Carrie Underwood, LeAnn Rimes, and Faith Hill. What is it about those artists that causes you to gravitate towards them?
Tiffany Woys: Definitely their big voice. Just the fact of what kind of entertainer they are. They’re vocalists and that’s how I started out and what I knew I wanted to do since I was really little. They’re stylists. When you play each one of their songs you’re not questioning which one it is on the radio. They just have a style to them that’s so different and differentiates them from everybody else on the playing field. I aspire to do that myself.
Celeb Secrets: What are your goals for 2019?
Tiffany Woys: in 2019 people will actually get to hear my music, so that’s the main goal is getting it out there for people to hear it. But also reaching people, getting closer to this community and being able to relate to more people on a bigger scale. Having them say back to me ‘Wow we’ve been through similar things’ and to get closer to hopefully future fans. Being able to perform these songs is my main goals because it’s been awhile since I’ve been on the stage and I’m eager to get back to it.
Celeb Secrets: What is something you want fans to know about you as an artist?
Tiffany Woys: I’m a girl coming from Sacramento where there wasn’t a lot of opportunity to do what I’m doing right now but I want people to know if you work hard and you have a big enough dream, no matter what it is, you can definitely do it. I’m kind of a vehicle for people to see that you can follow these big dreams like coming to Nashville from Sacramento where there isn’t a lot of opportunity with music. When I watched Celine Dion as a little girl, when I was 6 years old at her concerts…I want to be someone’s first concert where they’re so excited to see me and think ‘I want to do that someday’ and then they pursue that and get to do it. That’s the kind of artist I want to be for somebody. So that’s what I hope and pray down the road for 2019 and onward that I get to be that for somebody else, what Celine or Carrie was for me.
