About Daniel Lee Martin and Backstage & Backroads Productions:
There is something about music and the great outdoors that cannot be denied. Daniel Lee Martin spent his early years picking guitars with his dad and hunting and fishing when he probably should have been doing other things. Because of his extensive background in marketing, Daniel Lee found a way to include all of his passions into what would become one of the most successful independent country music careers in Nashville. In March 2004, Daniel Lee released his debut album, “All That I Am”. Awards, nominations, mentions in books, and a large fan base followed as he worked towards the release of his second album, “On My Way To You”. Sticking to his grass roots beliefs, he toured 325 Wal-Mart stores around the United States and connected with his fans on a level that is rare in today’s world. Now, working on his third album and a newlywed with wife, Julie McQueen, the couple is focusing on marrying his country music career with outdoor TV. Currently, they are the hosts and production company for “Brotherhood Outdoors.” Daniel Lee and Julie motivate and inspire each other to work towards a common goal, and it’s doesn’t matter who achieves it first. Instead of faking it, they laugh, they work hard, and they entertain – be it on stage or on TV. Learn more about Backstage and Backroads Productions at http://backstageandbackroads.com
