Last month, Payne joined "Star Wars" director J.J. Abrams and James Corden on the "Carpool" segment of “The Late Late Show.” And her entire family received full scholarships to attend Florida's Southeastern University. She also attended the 2016 CMT Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee, and threw the ceremonial first pitch during a Tampa Bay Rays baseball game in St. Petersburg, Florida.
