We’re on the road more than ever and I’m blessed because of that, so I wanted to give the fans some new music that I really think they’ll enjoy,” Lee said.
You Ain’t Never Been to Texas, distributed by Smith Music Group, includes 12 tracks that showcase Lee’s honky-tonk country storytelling with an edge, including the Bob Wills-penned “Deep Water” and the smooth pedal-steeled “Never Been to Texas,” co-written by Roger Springer, Tony Raymee and Jerry Lane. The record also includes 10 other tracks that exemplify Lee’s baritone on cuts like the feisty “Bullets First.” Fans are still transfixed when Lee belts out his 1980 hit “Lookin’ for Love,” which became a crossover hit spending three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Singles chart while also appearing in the Top 5 on the Billboard Pop chart and Top 10 on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart. In addition to “Lookin’ for Love,” Lee had a string of hit No. 1 songs reach the top: “One in a Million,” “Bet Your Heart on Me,” “The Yellow Rose” (a duet with Lane Brody and the theme song to the NBC TV-series of the same name) and “You Could Have Heard a Heartbreak.” Lee’s other major hits include “Pickin’ Up Strangers,” “Prisoner of Hope,” “Cherokee Fiddle,” “Sounds Like Love,” “Hey Bartender,” “Rollin’ Lonely,” and “Save the Last Chance.”
