Jaime Fox has a very familiar name, but the similarities with the “other” Jamie Foxx end at both of their abilities to soulfully wail “Georgia on My Mind.” Hailing from the great state of Maryland, Jaime moved south to Nashville seventeen years ago to pursue her country music dreams after graduating from the University of Maryland College Park with a bachelor of arts in Vocal Performance & Entertainment Business. Jaime hit the road hard for years promoting her music without the help of a major label, gaining thousands of country music, and recording four independent albums along the way. Jaime performed on Sirius Radio’s “The Highway” host, Storme Warren’s country music cruises and “Country on the Beach”trip a comined seven times. She has opened for artists like Phil Vassar, Lonestar, Mark Wills, Little River Band, Emmy Lou Harris and Lee Greenwood. Jaime also spent nearly four years as a staff songwriter for legendary producer, Rick Hall, at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL.
A former Miss Maryland in the Miss America Pageant, Jaime has a big heart for the causes she believes in, and uses her music to bring attention to foundations like the National Foster Parent Association and working with Carpe Artiste’s foundation, “Carpe Cares,” which creates enrichment opportunities for foster and adoptive children. “I was blessed with two parents who love me and gave me a beautiful childhood,” says Jaime. “Every child deserves that, and I’m doing what I can to help children find permanent homes.” She co-wrote the national campaign song for the Walk-Me-Home Foster Care Walk-a-thon, and most recently released a song called “Home Is Where I Make It” that she penned with three children in transition.
Jaime has released three studio albums including “Crossing Over” (2005), “The Devil Was An Angel Too” (2008), and “Last One Standing” (2011). Currently, Jaime is writing and performing new music with her longtime friends, Chad Trout and Travis Trout, in a band called “The Desert Okies.” The group recently an EP called “The Whole Damn Band” which is available on i-tunes, and they are working on new music and videos in the studio to be released in 2017.
Of course Jaime’s main purpose is to spread her music and her positive message far and wide, but she admits to secretly having one other dream fulfilled. “One day I’d like someone to go up to Jamie Foxx and say, ‘Hey, I thought you were supposed to be a blonde country singer!’”
