Hope, Ark. native, Mae Estes, has been paying dues in Music City for over seven years now. Working up to three jobs at a time her first few years in town, she’s now stacked with stories to tell. In 2020, Estes signed her first publishing deal with Plaid Flag Music, with advisement from Kobalt Music. She’s since racked up more than 10 million streams across platforms and over one million views on YouTube, independently and organically building a quickly-growing fan base with her “plain-spoken truth”, per The Boot. In 2022, “Thinkin’ Bout Cheatin’” became the first release from her upcoming debut EP as well as her first music video feature on CMT. That same year, Mae was honored with Arkansas CMA Female Vocalist of the Year for the second time in her home state. Post-pandemic events such as the NHL Stadium Series, PBR Stadium Series, Music City Grand Prix, The Bluebird Cafe, CMA Fest, Nissan Stadium, The Country Music Hall of Fame and more have hosted this “stone-cold country newcomer”, per Whiskey Riff. Mae also recently fulfilled a lifelong dream by debuting at the historic Grand Ole Opry in March. Estes prioritizes supporting our servicemen and women, having toured internationally with Armed Forces Entertainment and CreatiVets. She looks forward to touring her debut, six-song project, “Before the Record”, available everywhere now.
