Leah Turner Taps Into Her Latin Roots with Sultry New Single, “Once Upon a Time in Mexico”

Leah Turner

Country music singer-songwriter, Leah Turner marries her roots in country music with her Hispanic heritage, debuting her latest single “Once Upon a Time in Mexico.” Inspired by the love story of her parents Don Turner, a champion rodeo star, and her mother Susaña, a first-generation Mexican American, the song tells of a beautiful romance that blossoms under la luna (the moon) on the beaches of Mexico between a señorita and vaquero (cowboy).

Leah co-wrote “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” with mega producer and fellow songwriter, Jesse Frasure, who also co-wrote and produced her previous top 40 single “Take the Keys.” “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” infuses sounds from the Country and Latin genres creating a romantic melody that perfectly complements the song’s chorus, which is sang both in English and Spanish.

“This single is very special to me because it’s not only inspired by the love story of my parents, but brings together my American and Latin roots,” says Leah Turner. “It’s such a wonderful time to be a member of the Country music community as women and cultural diversity are being celebrated more than ever before.”

“Leah was the very first artist to give me a shot as a country music producer in Nashville,” states Jesse Frasure. “It’s been a blast reconnecting with her and collaborating on this song.”

Since moving in Nashville in 2014, Leah has had a top-40 single at Country Radio and toured the United States with many of Country music’s top artists such as Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and Jake Owen. Most recently Leah co-wrote Cody Purvis’ current hit “Drinking Terms,” which has over 8-million streams to-date, and co-wrote the song “Never Sorry,” with Jeremy Renner off of his latest EP.

Leah will follow up the release of “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” with the official music video premiering July 15th on CMT.
