Career

Soon her songwriting improved and one of her songs ‘Gypsy Girl’ was pitched to American Idol contestant and the eventual winner, Carrie Underwood. It exposed Decker to a wider audience and she soon signed a contract with Mercury Records. The producers wanted to give her music a more ‘pop-like’ sound and even made her work with hip-hop producers despite Decker wanting to be a country singer.

The album had popular singles like ‘Wanted’, ‘I Look So Good (Without You)’, ‘My Cowboy’, and ‘Blue Jeans’.
