Daniel Lee, set to release his Average Joes debut Roots on Tuesday (July 22), offers up a bit of diversity in a crowded marketplace. As Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line deliver breezy summer anthems, Lee digs a bit deeper for a 13-track project that sweeps from the emotional ("For Sale Sign") to the gritty (his current single "Backwoods Tobacco") and every red-dirt stop in between. With years of club circuit performances and songwriting sessions with some of Nashville's finest, he is ready to make a bold statement about his life and character.
Possessing a bit of self-awareness, the singer-songwriter hopes to change people's pre-conceived notions. "I’m a walking, talking contradiction. I really just want people to understand that I am a songwriter as well as a singer," he says in an exclusive interview with NashvilleGab.
