Dee grew up on Loretta Lynn, Bobbie Gentry, Lynn Anderson, Charley Pride and Charlie Rich. As a teen, Dee also spent a lot of time listening to Casey Kasum’s Top 40 Countdown every Sunday night. It was clear music and radio were her “things” as she learned to play the guitar for real, as well as the piano, and worked as a DJ and news reporter on her college campus radio station. After graduation, she made a detour into the legal field. She spent several years as a paralegal, but kept one foot in music as lead singer for a local country cover band, Sagewind. She got back to her first loves of music and radio shortly after and she’s been happily playing the tunes since 2002. When she’s not playing country classics, Dee spends time with her other love, her 11-year-old cocker spaniel, Larry. The two of them make a great pack!
