Keeira Lyn Ford is an actress and singer-songwriter. Born and raised in San Dimas, California, Keeira has been involved in show business since an early age. Her mother entered her in several beauty pageants at the ripe age of three years old, which got her into acting. Once she got an agent, she filmed a commercial with Garth Brooks at the age of ten. Her acting credits include “How I Met Your Mother,” “My Wife and Kids,” “Summoning,” “Living Single,” and “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper.”
Her father toured as part of Little Richard’s band and he exposed the 24-year-old to a rich culture of music. So when her grandmother introduced her to her first case of country music, Patsy Cline, and she instantly fell in love. As a child, she started working with Joe Jackson from the Jackson family. In 2009, she competed on CMT’s “Can You Duet?” and in 2011 she made it to the top 50 on season 10 of “American Idol.” A year later, she competed in the Texaco Country Showdown at the world famous Ryman Auditorium, where she performed with Leann Rimes. She has also teamed with other stars such as Garth Brooks and Vince Gill. Vince asked her to sing with him on a recent tour, playing the guitar for her as she sang Patty Loveless’ “Blame it on Your Heart.” They followed that up by singing a duet.
An all American singer, song writer and story teller. Cherish Lee is the daughter of Country music legend, Johnny Lee (Urban Cowboy’s Lookin’ For Love) and Hollywood vixen, Charlene Tilton (Lucy Ewing on the hit television series, Dallas).
Cherish spent the last few years on the road with her Papa Bear before moving full time to Nashville, TN. Writing music, performing, getting married, starting a family and recording her album “Tequila Cowgirl”, she has stayed extremely busy to say the least.
“Nashville has been so incredibly gracious to me. I’ve written with the most beautiful and talented writers, performed at the infamous Bluebird Cafe, the prestigious Tin Pan South Songwriter Festival. I’ve also performed with my Papa Bear at The Ryman Auditorium and The Grand Ole Opry, along with so many other bad ass venues around town. I met my husband here, our precious baby was born here, I’ve recorded my album here!!!! I owe so much to this city. I can’t get over how people just want to up lift you and champion you here!”
Cherish’s new album has a real Cinderella story attached to it. “It certainly is a home grown album and I could not have done it without my brilliant producer, Nate Wedan. I was respectfully allowed to be the artist and most importantly, a mother. No one flinched at my son coming to the studio with me or having to run home early on days he’s stayed with his daddy. This album is all heart.”
Tequila Cowgirl has an intimate, nostalgic feel to it. Add elements of modern day pop mixed with a healthy respect of country music, throughout the ages, and of course a little bit of rock n roll and you got yourself Cherish Lee’s Tequila Cowgirl!
