Let me not even mince words, 28-year-old Ester Renay Dean is paiiiid. She’s got hits for days under her songwriting belt. Seriously, her resume is nothing to snuff at. The Oklahoma native comes from a very musical family. So musical that when she told her mother she was going to be chef, she told her no she wasn’t and directed her back to her musical roots. Dean said sometimes it takes your parents wanting it for you, for it to click. You know what they say, momma knows best. Check out some of the hit songs you may not have known Ester Dean wrote.
