Michael Lee's Loving Me Comes Easy to You

Updated: Apr 19

Micheal Lee is not a stranger to the writing or performing world of music. He began singing in church at 14, writing songs at 16, and singing in nightclubs at 17, making $100 a night. Michael Lee reminisced with me about how his dad had to get him into the venues because he was underage. Michael Lee cut his first demo songs at 19/20 years old. He comes from a family full of performing artists. Michael Lee’s parents were part of a gospel group in the 80s and 90s. His granddad and great-uncles were in a country band in the 1960s touring the southern states. Michael Lee’s family reunions are full of family members singing and playing instruments together. 

Michael Lee grew up in the northwest corner of Georgia, a couple of hours from Nashville. Michael Lee and a friend he met through a family member casually played their guitars and sang while at a BBQ event for a hunting club at a dove shoot. It didn’t take long for them to gather a crowd and soon it became an event in itself gathering 300 or so people in the middle of a cornfield. Grammy Award Winning producer Wilbur C. Rimes was hunting at the club and heard them playing. Wilbur C. Rimes took an interest and brought the duo to Rosewood Studios in Tyler, TX  to cut a 3-song demo and then they returned the following year to finish the album, kicking off his career. Michael Lee began writing with many A-listed songwriters like Pat Alger (Nashville Hall of Fame, Georgia Music Hall of Fame, and hit songwriter on Garth Brooks's Unanswered Prayers, The Thunder Rolls, etc.) Michael Lee's catalog is full of Christian country songs and relatable country music with a 90's country vibe and rhythm.


Michael Lee continued to write music and recorded several projects with Red Hen Records as he took a break from touring to be at home with his family. He has been releasing new music, gracing the radio with his deep country baritone vocals and charming lyrics. He is signed to Private Label Artists and beginning a radio tour with tour dates added often. Following his Feb '24 release, The Well,  Michael Lee’s most recent song paints a picture very true to his own life and marriage. Showing the thankfulness of marriage and commitment, Loving Me Comes Easy To You was co-written with label executive Randy Smith from Private Label Artists. Loving Me Comes Easy To You was produced by Diamond Rio’s Micah Schweinsberg and Dana Williams. You can find Loving Me Comes Easy to You on the album Backdated which is available wherever you get music. Find Michael Lee on social media as michaelleetunes and by clicking the buttons below.
