By the time Jessie James Decker was a teenager living in Georgia, she would regularly cross over the state line to Nashville in search of a record deal. And after leaving her demos around town hoping the right person would catch a listen, she struck a deal at 17 years old. Blending country and pop, Decker’s single “Wanted” hit the Top 40 chart back in 2009. In addition to her music career, Decker was the star of her own reality TV show Eric & Jessie: Game On with her husband, a former NFL athlete. The artist also has a clothing line and has published a book.
