Renee Blair is a singer/songwriter born and raised between St. Louis’ diverse music scene and a farm in mid-Missouri. Blair’s songwriting and melodies reflect the wide variety of music that shaped her upbringing; everything from The Dixie Chicks to Nelly to Justin Timberlake.
At 15, Blair made the move to Nashville to pursue her music career. Shortly after, a string of serious accidents left not only her career – but also her life – in jeopardy. In and out of the hospital for two years, Blair underwent a major jaw surgery that left her mouth wired shut for three months. While in recovery, Blair posted a video with her jaw wired shut that quickly went viral, catching the attention of songwriting legends Diane Warren, LA Reid and Shane McAnally. Since releasing her first single in 2018, Blair has been named as part of CMT’s ‘Next Women of Country’ class of 2020 and has been featured on Spotify’s Hot Country and Apple Music’s Today’s Country.
Her debut album Seventeen gives a raw and honest look at Blair’s life, who shares “there isn’t one song I haven’t lived. I share my fears, mistakes and all the love I’ve experienced.” The previously released singles from the album have already amassed more than 20M streams and includes songs written by some of Nashville’s biggest hitmakers, Shane McAnally, Jordan Schmidt and Matt McGinn.
Blair has shared the stage with some of Nashville’s hottest artists like Chase Rice, Mitchell Tenpenny, Kane Brown, Carly Pearce, HARDY and the Eli Young Band. Outside the recording studio, Blair hosts her own radio show, “YoCo,” every morning on Nashville’s only genreless radio station 96.7 FM.
