Grand Ole Opry artist Jeffrey Steele was born in August of 1961 in Burbank, California into a musical family. His mother was a singer and his father always had dreams of becoming a country music songwriter. Steele first became interested in music when he was eight and sang “Joy to the World” by Three Dog Night at a church event. When he was seventeen, he performed in local groups as a keyboardist. In 1990, he co-formed the band Boy Howdy with three other California musicians. They performed together for the next few years, before Steele began performing as a solo artist.
Throughout his solo career, Steele released a variety of albums and several singles, including Top 60 singles “A Girl Like You,” “Somethin’ in the Water,” “Good to Go” and “Good Year for the Outlaw.”
As a songwriter, Steele has worked with artists and bands like Montgomery Gentry, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, LeAnn Rimes and Billy Ray Cyrus. His most successful song as a songwriter was the Number One single for Rascal Flatts “What Hurts the Most.” The song earned him the Songwriter of the Year and Song of the Year awards from BMI and the Songwriter of the Year award from MusicRow magazine. He has also written “Brand New Girlfriend” for Steve Holy, which earned him a BMI Award in 2006. In 2008, the Country Music Hall of Fame honored him as Poet & Prophet in the Hall of Fame’s quarterly series.
Also in 2008, Steele judged alongside Jewel and John Rich of Big & Rich on the show Nashville Star.
