The heart and the heritage of country music and farming are intertwined in EllieMae. Born and raised in Southern Idaho, EllieMae is familiar with the dirt roads that led to both harvest and song lyrics. As a songwriter, EllieMae writes what she knows: country life, family, love and loss, and Coors Light. She’s the best parts of country – good music and incredible storytelling.
EllieMae’s gumption is evident from the first note she sings. Listeners know she is exactly what she sings: hard working, kind, persistent and won’t take shit from anyone. Her lyrics are thoughtful and relatable with a touch of sass. Her stage presence is like watching a friend play you a song and then realizing that friend is on the cusp of country music greatness.
She was a member of Team Blake on NBC’s the Voice, and she’s recorded with Grammy winning engineer, Eric Delegard. EllieMae has opened for John Micheal Montgomery, Ian Munsick, Sam Riggs, Lainey Wilson, Morgan Wade, Koe Wetzel, Read Southall Bank, Chris Janson, Sundance Head and Jessie G. From county fairs to the Idaho Inauguration Ball, HWY 30 Music Fest to Iowa State University homecoming, EllieMae has a sound that’s raw and real. She’s been compared to Kasey Musgraves and Miranda Lambert and yet, she holds her own on every stage she sets foot on.
You can find her on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, YouTube and Amazon Music.
