In 1999, a seven year old walked into 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 2019, Mae independently released her debut single, “Naked” and toured internationally with Armed Forces Entertainment, performing for U.S. Air Force Bases in Guam, Diego Garcia and Singapore. During quarantine, she released a nostalgic demo called Recycled, followed by a confidence anthem titled "Best Side". In November of 2020, Mae signed her first publishing deal with Plaid Flag Music, joining a roster including her "Best Side" co-writer, Autumn McEntire.
