With a style that blends country sounds and pop energy, Jessie James Decker began singing at an early age, winning her first talent contest at just nine years old. By age 15, she’d begun writing songs, making regular trips to Nashville to land a record deal. Her big break would come two years later, with her debut album Jessie James arriving in 2009. Despite her initial success, James would go on to struggle for some time as she ultimately dreamed of pursuing country music as opposed to strictly pop. In 2013, she married pro football star Eric Decker, making a name for herself in the TV, fashion, and beauty world. Now recording under Jessie James Decker, she took another shot at pursuing her dreams and released her EP Comin Home, which rose to the number five spot on the Country Albums chart. In the years since, she has released two full lengths and three EPs. James Decker has cited several artists as inspiration for her unique fusion of country and pop, including Christina Aguilera, Shania Twain, Jessica Simpson, Janis Joplin, Bobbie Gentry, and Shelby Lynne.
