Singer/songwriter Robin Lee was born and raised in Nashville. She began her career in music while attending high school, performing at school dances and talent shows. She later made demo recordings for local publishing companies. In 1982, Lee debuted on the charts with the minor hit "Turning Back the Covers"; "Heart for a Heart" came the following year. In 1984, four songs became low-level hits, including "Angel in Your Arms"; "Paint the Town Blue" and "Safe in the Arms of Love" both hit the Top 50 the next year. In 1988 she had three Top 50 hits, including "This Old Flame." Lee did not appear on the charts again until 1990 with the title cut of Black Velvet, which made the Top 15 and became her biggest hit to date. The album hit the Top 25, and two other cuts from it reached the Top 70. She had one hit in 1991, "Nothin' but You." After her own recording career slowed, Lee signed as a songwriter for Big Tractor Music, the service owned by Virgin Records Nashville. She married songwriter Trey Bruce and saw her songs recorded by such country music luminaries as LeAnn Rimes and Jo Dee Messina. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi
