INSPIRED by a friend’s long distance relationship, pop country&nbsp;singer Stephanie Penrose has released her debut single, Take Me Home. The Tamworth local grew up on a property surrounded by horses, and said you can hear her country heritage in her music. “With my music I try not to confine it to a genre because then it’s more creative,” she said.

Her next singe will come out at the end of the year.
