Country music singer-songwriter Drake White was born William Drake White in Hokes Bluff, Ala., in 1983. His entry into music started with lyrics born from the thoughts and ideas he would write down as a young teen. Also in his teen years, he joined the First Baptist Church of Hokes Bluff's youth choir at his parents' request. After attending and graduating college with a building science degree and working in Nashville, Tenn., with a general contractor, he eventually quit that line of work to pursue music. His recorded albums and live performances enthrall fans who love his country tunes and unique approach.
To this day, Drake White says that one of the greatest influences on his music was listening to his grandfather preach. When Drake White plays live, he is often joined by his backup band The Big Fire. After releasing several singles to country music radio stations to a great reception, Drake White's 2016 album Spark reached No. 4 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
