Scooter Lee - Biography
Ms Scooter Lee is considered one of the hardest working acts in country music today. Touring 175 days a year around the world, she commands the stage each time she walks on; and will take your breath away with the fine tuned precision of her vocals letting you "hear" right away that this lady is no rookie in the music business.
She is the world's leading artist for recorded country and pop line dance music, turning the country dance community on it's ears in the early 1990's when she developed and perfected the formula for creating a perfectly phrased song that was not only "dancer friendly" but "radio friendly" as well. There isn't a dance floor in the world that hasn't heard or felt the sounds of that formula with self-penned “J'ai du Boogie, Dizzy, Rose Garden, High Test Love, Little Jalapeno, Ribbon Of Highway, This Little Light Of Mine, Speak To The Sky, Old Friend, Rock & Roll Waltz, Roll Back The Rug, Rompin' Stompin', Let The Four Winds Blow, Swing Low Sweet Chariot, Honky Tonk Twist, Who Did You Call Darling, Over The Rainbow, What The World Needs Now Is Love and Who The Hell Is Alice.” Her music can be heard from the USA to the UK, Denmark, France, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Maylasia, Japan, Canada, Finland, Norway, Germany, Iceland, Switzerland, Africa, and the list goes on and on.
She proved that formula over and over again with the success of her albums “High Test Love, Moving On Up and Would You Consider,” all three charting in the country music charts in the UK, Europe and Australia - not dance charts but country music charts. In Nashville, TN she is considered the hardest working artist on the road doing more than 150 Shows a year worldwide. She has gone on to release five compilations of “straight ahead dance music” that have gone on to become five of the biggest selling country dance CD’s in the world! “The Best Of Scooter Lee, More Of The Best Of Scooter Lee, Test Of Time, Walking On Sunshine” and her latest CD released November 2008, “Home To Louisiana.” 2002 had her releasing her first Christmas album called “Set The North Pole On Fire.” In 2009 she released her first Gospel CD titled “Sing A New Song and Dance A New Dance.” Then she went on to win the UK Southern Gospel Artist of The Year 2009; a GREAT honor for her.
She holds the British title “Country Dance Artist Of The Year” for 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000 & 2001. She was nominated again in 2002. In the year 2000, she was inducted into the British Dance Hall Of Fame to stand beside Jo Thompson, Billy Ray Cyrus, The Village People and Brooks and Dunn. Also, in 2000 she received the “Spirit Of Europe Award” in Berlin, Germany. This award is given to the artist who has contributed the most to country music in Europe. She performed during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, GA, and at the 1997 Orange Bowl half-time show along side the Mavericks in Miami, Florida. She’s the singing voice heard on the Longhorn Steakhouse Restaurant TV & radio commercials, creating the now famous “Steakhouse Baby!”
Her latest CD titled “Welcome To Scooterville” released February 2013 takes you back to her early days of recording GREAT songs. With new songs and dances inspired by the energy that only Scooter Lee can harness on vinyl, oops.............CD. Her love for good solid country rockin' songs is apparent on this new CD as it is on all her CDs, and you will find yourself tapping your toes full of positive energy which is what this project is about.
