Jessie James Decker celebrated her thirty-first birthday in a big way on Friday, April 12th. She released her first single of 2019, “Roots and Wings”. A little different pace from her 2018 single “Boots” but keeping the 90s Shania Twain vibe, this is one you’ll be singing for a long time.
“This is one of my favorite songs I’ve written and I’m excited to share it with y’all!!”, she shared on her Instagram. The single certainly shows how talented the songstress truly is, showing off her voice and the variety of ranges she can hit. Decker co-wrote the song with Alyssa Bonagura, Dave Pittenger, and Shane Stevens.
“Roots and wings/I’m somewhere in between/Where I’m from and what I dream/What I’ve known and what I’ve seen/No matter where I go/The sky above, the ground below/My heart will have a home/Cause I got these/Roots and wings”
While the entire song is powerful, the chorus is where it gets personal. It hints that Decker has been through a lot but likes where her path has taken her and no matter where her journey continues to take her, she’ll be more than okay. Something we can all relate to.
Thirty-one is off to a good start for the singer-songwriter. Not only did she release her new single, but on Friday she also kicked off her 19-city headliner tour. Starting in Denver and wrapping up in Houston in June, Decker will also be performing and Stagecoach and CMA Fest.
While Decker hasn’t been on the road in two years, she certainly has been more than busy. She welcomed her third child, Forrest Bradley, to the world, wrote a book Just Jessie, My Guide to Love, Life, Family, and Food, which made the New York Times Bestselling List and opened her first brick and mortar store for Kittenish. Although she has only been thirty-one for a couple of days, it’s going to be a year to remember.
Catch Jessie James Decker when she brings her tour to NYC on May 16th at The Beacon Theatre.
