I have conducted several of these MEET interviews, particularly in the last year, and wanted to address the reason why I do these. I think it is important for all fans to help aspiring country musicians in any way we can. They are working dilligently to always reach a wider audience and often times it falls on deaf ears. I don’t pretend to understand what that experience is like for a musician, I just know it happens and realize how difficult the struggle can sometimes be.
I hope these interviews add insight to where the musicians are coming from and what is important to them. I always say that these are the questions and features that I would like to know about my favorite country musicians, commercial, indie or otherwise.
Check out our interview with Kevin Lee below to learn about his inspiration, what he listens to and more! Kevin’s current single “What Your Love is Like” can be streamed now on Spotify and iTunes.

How would you describe your “sound”?
I would say that I have a newer style feel, with a classic 90’s country undertone.
Where do you see your musical career in 5 years?
My goal is to be writing full time within the next 5 years. It would be nice to release a couple albums under a label, but writing has always been the main goal.

What advice would you give to yourself at the start of your musical career?

My first single being released and becoming #1 on the radio for a few weeks, and remaining in the top for 11 weeks. (Atlanta’s 94.9 The Bull Back Yard Country”)

I am currently finishing up on my newest single, “It’s Alright”, and working on my debut EP.
