Awarded Songwriter Jessi Alexander Announces Album, ‘Decatur County Red’

Jessi Alexander, a Grammy-nominated, CMA and ACM Award-winning songwriter, will release her first new album since 2014 with the release of Decatur County Red, out March 27.

Inspired by a cabin in Decatur County left to her by her grandmother, Alexander dedicates the album to “the folks that love sad songs, beer joints, pedal steel, and country music.” Decatur County Red was produced by Alexander, Jon Randall and Leslie Richter, and includes co-writers Randall, Brothers OsborneJosh Thompson, Glen Worff and more. One track, “Country Music Made Me Do It,” features Randy Houser.

“Mama Drank,” co-written by Alexander and Randall, is out today (Jan. 10) and is a testament to her own experience as a mom-of-three.

After writing more than 70 hits, including “The Climb” (Miley Cyrus), “The Way I Talk” (Morgan Wallen), “Mine Would Be You,” “Drink On It,” and “Turnin’ Me On” (Blake Shelton), and  “I Drive Your Truck” (Lee Brice), Alexander’s release of new original material is the first since her 2014 Down Home.
