A native of Shreveport, LA, James LeBlanc, has earned recognition past decade as a singer-songwriter from Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
James has been writing for Fame Publishing in Muscle Shoals since December of 1997 and has spent these years building a publishing catalog and honing his musical talents. He has had dozens of songs recorded by major label artists, including the title cut to Jason Aldean’s “Relentless”, Gary Allan’s “Learning How To Bend’ and “Yesterday’s Rain”, Billy Ray Cyrus “Don’t Give Up On Me” and “I Can’t Live Without Your Love” , the top 10 single “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde” for Travis Tritt, and recent cuts by Rascall Flatts, Tal Bachman, Martina McBride, and Nashville Star’s Angela Hacker.
Angela Hacker is a country singer who first gained fame through winning Nashville Star, a country version of American Idol. She was born in 1978 in Muscle Shoals, AL. She grew up with three sisters and was shy as a child. When she was 13, she entered a singing contest at her school and claims that she “hasn’t quit since.” She struggled for the next 16 years with her singing career, but managed to get an audition on the fifth season of Nashville Star. She was selected to be one of the show’s ten finalists and, throughout the competition, was perceived as the frontrunner. For the finale of the show, she was competing against her younger brother, Zac Hacker. In the end, Angela took the title and won a recording contract with Warner Brothers Records.
