The Couldn’t Be Happiers are a married, songwriting alt-country/Americana duo from Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Jordan Crosby Lee (guitar and vocals) is a born again North Carolinian originally from Texas. His love of Texas music still runs deep, and his conversational songwriting style is redolent of Robert Earl Keen and Bruce Robison.
North Carolina native Jodi Hildebran Lee (drums, harmonica, and vocals) brings a more traditional/bluesy country dressing to their sound. Her voice is bold, brilliant, and hair-raisingly beautiful.
Their sound is uniquely their own, but if a comparison must be made, think Violent Femmes meets Ernest Tubb and Loretta Lynn. The songwriting duo’s oeuvre is as distinctive as their sound. No topic is off the table. They cover everything from their love for each other to the rueful life of a Sasquatch hunter. The lyrics are nuanced, funny, and purposeful.
