Tanner Lee is unapologetic, hard-rocking country with a Muscle Shoals soul.
With a passion for storytelling, Tanner writes and performs straight from the heart. Tanner’s music spans good time honky tonk to to Muscle Shoals soul. It’s real, passionate, funny and sometimes painful. His voice resonates with the clear passion of a singer/songwriter and his music is wrapped in the influences of traditional honky tonk, southern rock, a little bluegrass and a lot of Nashville country. His songs are the true stories of a real life and often crazy life. Tanner works as a guitar-toting musician across the US, his home state of Missouri, Nashville, Tennessee and Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
The Tanner Lee Band has had the fortune of sharing the stage and showbills with artists like Randy Houser, Sam Hunt, Jon Pardi, Aaron Watson, Logan Mize, Zane Williams, Joey Hyde and Grammy-nominated performers, The SteelDrivers and Brandy Clark.
Tanner is currently finishing an album in fabled Muscle Shoals, AL co-written and produced by the Grammy-nominated SteelDrivers' front man and Mercury Records recording artist, Gary Nichols.
