In 1999, a seven years old went to an Arkansas rodeo arena with a cordless mic and sang the national anthem a cappella for the first time, claiming she could do it better than LeAnn Rimes. She went on to play at every rodeo she contended in, and also in other sporting events, ceremonies and opries. Not similar to most middle schoolers, Estes played every Tuesday night on an AM radio show, where she first found her love for traditional country music. A while after she moved to Nashville in 2015, she has been playing her dues for the time she came to Music City, working three jobs at a time to financially stay above and playing for anyone who would listen to her music.
Estes takes motivation from artists such as Lee Ann Womack and Keith Whitley, Mae Merges the Timelessness of Traditional Country Music with a new music sound and production to create her unique artistic background.
In 2019, Estes individually released her debut single, “Naked,” and toured internationally with Armed Forces Entertainment, playing for the U.S. Air Force Bases in Guam, Diego Garcia, and Singapore. During quarantine, she put out a nostalgic demo titled “Recycled,” followed by a spirited anthem named “Best Side.” In November 2020, Estes signed her first publishing deal with Plaid Flag Music joining a roll call including her “Best Side,” co-writer Autumn McEntire.
On March 31, 2021, Estes put out her brand-new single “Hell You Raised,” and this song is available to listen on both Spotify and iTunes. If you like to find out more about Mae Estes then check out her website at (https://www.maeestes.com).
