Imagine Miranda Lambert and Lynyrd Skynyrd living in a modern pop world: sassy country, southern rock, & songs so catchy they’re stuck in your head for days. Melissa Lee is a stylistically innovative 25-year-old super star on the rise.
Melissa has been performing 200+ shows a year since she was 19-years-old & has opened for artists such as Cole Swindell, Brothers Osborne, Josh Turner, The Marshall Tucker Band, David Allan Coe, Joe Diffie, Rodney Atkins, The Kentucky Headhunters, LANCO, William Michael Morgan, Walker Hayes, Tyler Farr, Jeff Carson, Buddy Jewell, Doug Supernaw, Saving Abel & Pop Evil. Melissa also toured with the ACM award winning band Confederate Railroad, performing for national fairs & festivals throughout the country. Her most memorable performance during that time was singing alongside country music legend Charlie Daniels at the Dallas Bull in Tampa, Florida.
Melissa originates from Michigan, where she started touring full-time in 2015 with an all-girls group called Girls With Guitars. In 2016 she sold out Michigan casinos as the only female singer in a “tribute to the Grand Ole Opry”. She moved to Nashville in 2017 and was hired as a performer in The Music of Nashville- an elite group whose weekly performances at the Texas Troubadour Theatre rated #2 on Trip Advisor, with the Grand Ole Opry being #1. Her picture was on 11 billboards, in the entrance windows and all throughout Opry Mills & other miscellaneous places throughout Nashville.
During that same year, Melissa recorded a full-length album at Mainframe Recording Studio in Nashville, which features top of the line musicians such as Bobby Randall (founding member of CMA award winning group Sawyer Brown), Dink Cook (current bass player for Toby Keith), Mark Beckett (current drummer for Olivia Newton-John), Joe Spivey (current fiddle player of The Time Jumpers) & Mark Oliverius (former keyboardist for Lorrie Morgan).
Melissa returned to her home state at the beginning of 2018 for an album release concert where she sold out Kewadin Casino. In 2019 she won “Female Country Vocalist of the Year” in Review Magazine.
Melissa is currently working on a new album in Orlando, FL.
