Country crooner Drake White has been steadily climbing the ranks with his relatable lyrics, clever songwriting, and no-frills live shows. Taking the stage with his band The Big Fire, White exudes feel-good country energy as he sings and struts through upbeat songs like "Alabama Dirt Road" and "Simple Life". The band keeps pace beautifully, adding guitar, bass, and no less than two drum kits to create a rollicking live sound that always gets fans hootin' and hollerin'. From his head-to-toe denim outfits to the no-nonsense chops of his backing players, White always gives ticket buyers an authentic, boot-stomping concert experience rooted in good old-fashioned country values.
Drake White was born in Hokes Bluff, AL where he grew up singing in his church choir. He started penning songs at age 14, but wound up earning a degree in building science and working as a general contractor after college. In the early '00s he quit his Nashville contractor job to pursue his music career, and in 2013 he made his debut on MCA Nashville with the song "Simple Life". The track was a success, cracking the Top 40 of the US Country Airplay chart and leading to opening slots with big names like Eric Church, Luke Bryan, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. White once again climbed the charts in 2015 with the single "It Feels Good", a rollicking tune with a title that perfectly summarizes his live shows. With his highly anticipated debut album generating much buzz in 2015, White continues to expand his fanbase with his no-holds-barred performances on tour.
