BABY THERE'S BEAUTY IN WALKIN' AWAY
SO WATCH ME
MY BACK SIDE IS MY BEST SIDE ANYWAY
written by autumn mcentire, kenny foster, and mae estes
An empowerment-inducing anthem by an artist determined to tell stories in a way they've never been told. "Best Side" is narrated by a woman just dumped, who dusts herself off and uses her strongest assets to quickly rebuild her confidence. Clever lyrics combined with Nashville's best production and an authentic delivery make up Mae Estes' latest release.
In 1999, a seven year old walked into the middle of an Arkansas rodeo arena with a cordless microphone and sang the national anthem a cappella for the first time, claiming she could do it better than LeAnn Rimes. She went on to perform at every rodeo she competed in, and eventually other sporting events, ceremonies and opries. Unlike most middle schoolers, Mae performed every Tuesday night on an AM radio show, where she first discovered her love for classic country music. Eventually moving to Nashville in 2015, she's been paying her dues from the moment she stepped foot in Music City, working up to three jobs at a time to financially stay afloat and playing for anyone who'd listen.
TAKING INSPIRATION FROM ARTISTS LIKE LEE ANN WOMACK AND KEITH WHITLEY, MAE MERGES THE TIMELESSNESS OF CLASSIC COUNTRY MUSIC WITH MODERN MELODIES AND PRODUCTION TO FORM HER EXCLUSIVE ARTISTRY.
In August of 2019, Mae independently released her debut single, “Naked”, receiving over 100,000 streams on Spotify and making the Fresh Finds Country and New Music Nashville playlists. She has since released three more singles to all platforms. In 2019, she toured internationally with Armed Forces Entertainment, performing for U.S. Air Force Bases in Guam, Diego Garcia and Singapore. She also toured the U.S., with shows in Arkansas, California, Oregon, Washington, Florida, Illinois and Tennessee.
