Drake White started writing his thoughts down when he was 14, some of which would later become lyrics in his songs. At his parents’ urging, he joined the youth choir at First Baptist Church of Hokes Bluff in Alabama and began his lifelong love of music.
In performances, he and his band, Drake White and the Big Fire, have opened for like-minded musicians such as Luke Bryan, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tyler Bryant, and Zac Brown Band, to name a few.
Drake’s songs are true American stories put to music. He writes about the real ups and downs, loves and losses, and living the dream — themes we can all relate to. He is one singer-songwriter who will never run out of songs because he writes about real life. And, as the saying goes, “Life is one long song.”
When discussing his new album, “Spark,” Drake said, “Since we began this journey — working on the album — I knew I wanted the title to be ‘Spark.’ The idea of starting a fire from a tiny spark has always been so intriguing to me. That’s the way I have always lived my life, starting with a small plan and then it becomes this dream I didn’t even know to dream.”
If you’re a dreamer, watch Drake White’s performance of “Livin’ the Dream.” He inspires with hope, honesty, and the strength to realize that dreams are meant to come true. Just work your tail off and pour your heart into them.
