Drake White grew up singing in his church’s youth choir in Alabama before becoming one of Country music’s most spirited innovators, earning four Top 40 hits and traveling the country on multiple nationwide tours.

In early 2013, he released his debut single “Simple Life” through MCA Nashville.

White signed to Big Machine Records’ re-establishment of Dot Records in June 2014. The first single, “It Feels Good” released to country radio on Feb. 24, 2015.
