COUNTRY TO THE CORE & MUSIC IN THE BONES
Calvin grew up in the small, hard-working town of Earle, Arkansas on his family's farm. Music was fused into every aspect of his childhood and he picked up singing from listening to the workers on the farm and at church. During his time in college at Lamar University in Beaumont, TX, Calvin was immersed in country culture and performed at festivals alongside established acts like TracyByrd, Zona Jones and Jimmie Van Zant. During these performances, Calvin would often hear praise of his voice and constant encouragement to move to Nashville. Though it wasn't an easy decision, Calvin took their advice and packed up for Music City and hasn't looked back since. With deep rural roots and a Voice grown in gospel, Calvin Lee has created his own unique blend of country soul.
In his first single, My America, the lyrics highlight the blue collar lifestyle he is so familiar with while paying homage to those who fight for our country. Featuring Heidi Newfield and Keith Burns the Grammy nominated duo formerly known as Trick Pony, the track is the quintessential picture of the American dream and serves as a call to action to the American people to hold on to life’s simple pleasures in the midst of hard times. With an authentic blue collar upbringing, Calvin is creating music for real America by way of true life.
