2017 is already proving to be a breakout year for Broken Bow Records recording artist Jackie Lee. The singer/songwriter recently released his brand new single “Getting Over You,” and it is quickly becoming a fan favorite for the rising star. Additionally, Lee is introducing fans to even more new music out on the road this spring as he joins Dan + Shay’s Obsessed Tour.
The artist on the rise continues to establish a connection with fans via social media. The powerful tool has allowed him to connect with many online, and now he’s starting to get recognized off-line as well!
“It always blows my mind” Lee reveals to us. “I’m still at the very beginning stages, I’m definitely not like ‘famous’ or anything yet. Like Dan + Shay, they have a huge following on socials and they’re famous. I’m starting to get in that place of recognition a little bit, which is really cool, I’ve never been there.”
Jackie shared with us his first experience on being recognized while out & about, and we have no doubt that this was just the first of many more to come! “I was at Target in Nashville the other day and they were like “are you Jackie Lee” and I said “yeah,” and they were like “can we get a picture,” I was like “are you sure? Are you sure you’re talking to the right person?” It was really cool. That was the first time I’d ever met someone like this that I didn’t know that wanted a picture. It’s always awesome to see fans in general, and interact with them on socials.”
Lee’s fan base continues to grow, especially during his 30 minute set opening up the Obsessed Tour. With just a microphone and his guitar, Jackie is making an impressive introduction with fans. The stripped down set allows him to connect and provide a memorable experience for the audience.
“I kind of made the decision to do it just me. Everyone is still getting to know me” Jackie explains. “When they come to see Dan + Shay, some have no idea who I am. I’ve had someone once tell me that people won’t remember the songs all the time, or what they wore or what you wore, but they’ll remember how they felt. That’s what I want people to leave with. I want them be like ‘man, that was the best concert I’ve ever been to, and that Jackie Lee guy wasn’t bad either!’ I just want people to know that I see them sitting out there and I want all of us to have fun together, that’s my goal.”
Jackie intends to learn from both Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney during his weeks out on the road with them. What the duo has going on for them both on stage and off stage with fans is something Jackie admires. “Dan is so great and Shay is one of the best singers I’ve ever heard in my life. I hope to take away the inspiration of every single night and stay in their ball field.”
“And their fan experience. I hope to grow every night by watching those guys. Talk about social media, they knock it out of the park, they kill it. Their fans are very loyal and that is what its all about. You can’t always have number ones on the radio. There will be a time where that is not a thing for artists, so having those fans that will be with you for the long haul is what I want and that is what they have. I hope to learn their ways.”
Jackie’s partnership with Spotify will also enhance his connection with fans as he visits multiple cities throughout the Obsessed Tour. By streaming “Getting Over You” on Spotify, fans will have the chance to meet the rising star and watch him perform live.
