Drake White, named, one of Billboard Magazine’s Top 10 Country Artists to Watch in 2013 is an old-soul, who writes timeless songs. His lyrics reflect his mantra of making the very most of every moment. 2013 marked White’s debut on the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage and saw the release of his first single “The Simple Life,” which landed in the top 40 on the Billboard Country Chart.
Part poet, philosopher and backwoods rabble-rouser, White, who is originally from Hokes Bluff, AL, has a unique ability to tap into the emotions of fans. “I grew up surrounded by music,” says White, who has toured with Toby Keith and Kip Moore in addition to opening for Lynyrd Skynyrd, Eric Church, Alan Jackson, Little Big Town and others. “I got my first guitar from our neighbor, Mr. Brown who was a bluegrass musician. I was raised listening to the greats from Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and The Allman Brothers to Credence Clearwater Revival. I write music from my personal experiences to be shared whether around a campfire or in an arena, hoping that my lyrics resonate with people on an intimate level.”
