About James Dupré
James Dupré was born and raised in Bayou Chicot, Louisiana. Named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” Dupré has over 10 million views to his credit on YouTube, with three charted singles on the Billboard Indicator chart, including “Another Love Song,” “Hurt Good,” and “Stoned to Death.” The one-time aspiring meteorologist turned paramedic became a YouTube sensation in 2007 upon posting cover videos of country songs. His pitch-perfect, baritone voice and high engagement through social media platforms like YouTube led to an invitation to perform on Ellen. Shortly after, he released his debut album It’s All Happening in 2010, which charted on Billboard. After signing a record deal with Warner Music Nashville in 2011, Dupré began performing and touring full-time through 2014. Shortly thereafter Dupré appeared on NBC’s The Voice, Season 9, where a four-chair turn ultimately landed him a spot on Adam Levine’s team. The father of four, with another one on the way, made his acting debut in the film, The Price, playing the son of a country singer, portrayed by Randy Travis.
