Jessie James’s Career
At the age of seventeen, Jessie Decker realized that she needed to refine her singing technique as she struggled to obtain a recording contract from a major label despite two years of auditioning. She sought advice from Carla Wallace of the independent label Big Yellow Dog Music and began working on both her singing technique and her lyrics.
Soon after, her songwriting improved, and one of her songs, “Gypsy Girl,” was presented to eventual American Idol winner Carrie Underwood. It exposed Decker to a larger audience, and she inked a record deal with Mercury Records shortly thereafter.
