– Jesse Lee released her new single Like My Mother Does
to country radio Monday. The song will also be available on iTunes as of today and featured on her forthcoming debut album, set for release early next year.
Co-written by Liz Rose, Nikki Williams and Grammy Award winning producer Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), the track is a tribute to a mother-daughter relationship that represents Lee's personal relationship with her mom. "My mom's my best friend, so when I'm singing that song, I'm coming from a very real place," said Lee. "When I played it for her for the first time, she cried."
Lee is currently out on the road visiting radio in support of her new single. In between runs, she is in the studio writing and recording for her yet-to-be-titled album.
Born in Northern California and raised in Florida, Lee opened shows for artists such as Ronnie Milsap, Willie Nelson, Keith Urban and Clay Walker by her teens and spending extended periods of time recording and performing in Music City at famed Nashville venues like the Bluebird Café and the Ryman Auditorium. After high school, she enrolled in Belmont University's music business program until being signed by Atlantic Records.
