Grace Leer is a California native who began singing at the age of six. Instead of skipping college, Leer followed her athletic passion by playing D1 soccer at the University of California, Berkeley. She made the move to Nashville four years ago and appeared in the Top 10 on Season 18 of ABC’s “American Idol.” Since then, Leer has secured a record deal via 19 Recordings, Inc. and has spent the last year writing and recording music for her self-titled debut EP, available now. Leer recently performed the National Anthem at the SheBelieves Cup in Nashville at Geodis Park.
Leer's latest release, “My Mind’s Made Up,” the highly relatable story song about falling for someone’s potential, went viral on TikTok and has almost one million streams across DSPs. Her Christmas single, “Star On Top of The Tree,” penned by Leer, Dan Agee and JoyBeth Taylor was released on October 27th.
The first single off the EP, “Brought A Girl,” was released in February of last year and shortly after its release, gold record holder and Kansas native Logan Mize asked her to join him on his latest single, “Nothing with You,” released April 8, and to serve as the direct support act on his spring 2022 It’s About Time tour. Leer has since released singles including the ode to country greats “Ones Before Me,” the breakup anthem “After 1” and relatable “The One.” Leer was CMT’s Next Up Now artist for November and named Country Now’s Country Next. Leer has also been included in iHeart Women of Country a couple of times.
