James Norris has country and southern rock running through his veins. He writes and sings his own style of country and southern rock music. James grew up in Savannah, Tennessee on the outskirts of town in a community known as Walnut Grove. One of his favorite quotes that he loves to say is “Don’t try to be different, try to make a difference.” This quote has stuck with him throughout his lifelong dream of being a country music singer. The type of music that he writes associates with real life experiences.

James is an artist who is determined to get signed. Life has been a roller coaster ride for him while he has been motivated in making it in the music industry. “Expect the worst and hope for the best”, James says. “No matter how many hard times I have, I have to keep my heart strong for what I love to do.” He mainly plays music on the weekends and on his down time. He is a truck driver through the week to provide for his family. He has been in the trucking industry for 10 years now, but his heart has been in music his entire life. He has been rocking the bars and venues from Savannah, Tennessee to Nashville, Tennessee for the past 8 years. James has sang at the Wildhorse Saloon, Bluebird, Lyrix, Commadore, Broken Spoke, Nashville Song Writers Festival for 2 years in a row and the nationally known Trail Of Tears; having standing ovations and the crowds going wild with his music performance and entertainment.

Nashville country music charts will be blown away with James’ unique talent that he has. “Its Everyday Life” is a song that is of full of emotions, while “Everyday is a New Song” tells what truck drivers see on a daily basis out of their windows. “Everyday Is A New Song” is based on the experiences that he has encountered along with the stories of other truck drivers. He may write and sing his own style of genre, but he is also talented for singing other individuals’ music. He puts his own feelings and inspirations into any song that he does sing. One accomplishment that he is proud to tell is in October of 2007, he entered in the Rising Superstar Contest held at the Wildhorse Saloon. He finished in eighth place out of a one hundred plus contestants.
