Rickie Lee Tanner grew up in Belton in a town with strong musical roots, just south of Kansas City. Rickie has been entertaining crowds of all sizes nearly his entire life, getting his start playing Opry shows in the Kansas City area when he was just a kid. In his late teens he began fronting bands that played in the smoke-filled bars, honky tonks and dance clubs all over the midwest. During his career Rickie has shared the stage with some of biggest names in country music. Rickie has brought his high-energy show to bars, clubs, fairs and festivals from Minnesota to Texas and nearly everywhere in between. Consistently logging over 150 shows per year. As a Nashville recording artist, 2013 will see the release of his second full-length studio album. The 10 track effort features 8 songs written or co-written by Tanner, including the title track "This Here" and features some of the best musicians in the business, including Troy Luccketta (TESLA) on drums, and Jake Clayton (Tanya Tucker, Sunny Sweeney). Rickie Lee's music is all about family, God and country and "This Here" is no exception. Rickie Lee Tanner believes that people go to see live music to see a show, not just hear music.
