Pop/country singer-songwriter Ellee Duke opened for LeAnn Rimes at the Emerald Queen Casino last week. The stop in Tacoma was near the midpoint in their Today Is Christmas Tour. Ellee grew up in Utah and has since moved to Nashville to pursue her dream. She accepted a Songwriting/Artist development deal with Big Machine Music and is currently working on her debut album. With a beautiful voice, a knack for writing memorable songs, and loads of determination, the talented Ellee Duke is bound to make it big. Be sure to catch her the next time she plays in the Seattle area.
