Countrified focuses on the story of one woman's journey, splitting her time between Nashville and Los Angeles as she strives to balance pursuing her career as a country singer and her roles as a wife and mother of three children, whom she homeschools.
Leslie was also dealt the challenge of a surprise kidney failure diagnosis. Rather than let this stop her, Leslie has determinedly continued to stride forward despite her illness. She recently underwent a transplant operation and is recovering in her Los Angeles home.

As the daughter of a Lt. Colonel in the Army, Leslie Cours Mather has lived all over the world. She attended Vanderbilt University in Music City and during her time in Tennessee, she enrolled in acting school and worked for Bob Farnsworth at Hummingbird Productions. From there, Leslie moved to L.A., to hone her craft while starting a family. A chance business meeting introduced her to legendary producer/record executive Denny Diante who put her back in Nashville with a "Wrecking Crew" of studio players at Blackbird Studios. The result is the disc, COUNTRIFIED, due for release later this year. With influences ranging from Linda Ronstadt to Martina McBride and Trisha Yearwood, Mather presents a powerful vocal style that is uniquely her own.
Mather's most recent single, the patriotic, unity-anthem, "We Are America", debuted this summer. "We Are America" shows Mather in a new light. Her previous three MusicRow CountryBreakout™ Chart singles ("That Was The Whiskey," "Hell Hath No Fury," "Countrified") were targeted at Country audiences and more focused on the singer's sense of fun and showcasing her amazing vocal versatility. Appealing to a broader scope of listeners, the new release takes an unapologetic patriotic stand.
Leslie's music is available for purchase on Amazon, iTunes and Spotify.
