Drake White (born in Hokes Bluff, Alabama[1]) is an American country music singer.

White sang in the choir at his local church, and began writing songs when he was 14. He later attended Gadsden State Community College and then Auburn University, graduating with a degree in building science. Later, he worked with a general contractor in Nashville, Tennessee before quitting that job in favor of a musical career.[1]

In concert, he and his band ("Drake White & The Big Fire") opened up performances for such musicians as Eric Church, Luke Bryan, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tyler Bryant, and Channing Wilson.

In early 2013, he released his debut single "Simple Life" through MCA Nashville.[2][3]

White signed to Big Machine Records' re-establishment of Dot Records in June 2014.[4]
