Jessie James Decker Talks 11 Years With Eric Decker and Life on Tour

Jessie James Decker has a bright future ahead of him. Rachel Smith of Dailion was present at the 33-year-old singer’s Nashville tour rehearsal and got the inside scoop on her marriage to Eric Decker, life as a mother of three, and her eagerness to play live once more.

Dailion’s interview with the country singer coincided with her 11-year anniversary with her husband, with whom she married in 2013. The couple’s 4-year-old son, Forrest, was born on the same day, making the “day of celebration” sweeter. They also have two children, Vivianne, 8, and Eric, 6.

Decker stated, “We met 11 years ago today, and we had no idea our last baby would be born today,” before sharing what her husband did to commemorate the occasion.

“He surprised me with a large bunch of roses when I awoke. “They’re stunning,” she exclaimed. “I hadn’t expected it.” ‘Oh my God, you’re so sweet that you like to acknowledge it,’ I thought… We’re quite fortunate to have met.”

“They are amazing,” Decker remarked of her children.

She remarked, “I just wake up every day so eager to be their mom.” “I truly believe that. ‘Oh my God, I get to just be with them again today,’ I think. It’s the most incredible sensation.”

One of the many reasons she’s looking forward to her tour, which begins on April 14, is the opportunity to bring her kids along.

“I’m not sure I’d be able to do this if they weren’t able to accompany me.” I’d just be depressed. I’m not sure I’d get as much enjoyment out of it as I should. Simply put, I’m too attached. “I can’t be away from them for more than a few of days,” she said before revealing her children’s favorite aspect of traveling.

“The kids all choose their bunk, so it’s a big deal for them,” Decker added. “Eric will find really entertaining locations for the kids to go during the days when I am rehearsing or need a little relaxation from the night before… It’s just for a good time.”

The three children like watching their mother perform, and Decker appreciates having them there, even if they may be a bit of a distraction at times.

“They just adore it.” They are pleased with me. “I’m constantly thinking about them,” she admitted. “I do get sidetracked from time to time.” I’ve been on stage and noticed Vivianne missing her ears, and I’ve been in the middle of a song and popped over to say, ‘She has to put her ears on!’ or ‘He’s getting tired.’ He must retire to his bed.’ I need to remain focused, yet my audience is familiar with me. They are aware that I am first and foremost a mother.”

Decker is excited to begin her first tour in 2019, despite the fact that parenthood is her most important job.

“I still feel like the little girl who came into this world right out of high school in Georgia.” I’m still a little nervous. My stomach still flutters. She told Dailion, “I’m very excited, but I’m also nervous.” “It’s been a long time since I’ve performed in front of tens of thousands of people.” I’m looking forward to it. I’m excited to see everyone’s expressions. It’s been far too long.”

Decker suggested that she’ll be “mixing up the setlist” and “adding some fresh aspects” when she takes to the stage.

“This time, it’ll just feel a little different.” We’re adding new songs from the upcoming EP. “I’m bringing some original songs from my debut album, which was released in 2009,” she stated. “I just wanted to give it a complete makeover and refresh because it’s been a while since I’ve been on the road.”

“I used to wear a T-shirt and cut-off jeans out there.” Decker continued, “I’m going to change things up.” “This time, I’m going to elevate it a little bit more [with] a little bit more jewels and jazz and everything else, more glitter… “If you’re going to do this once, you might as well put on the dang sparkles,” I reasoned, “so that’s what I’m going to do.”

It took some time to get ready for all of those sparkles, especially after being quarantined due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Since COVID, I’ve done what everyone else has done, which is to lock ourselves in the house and eat a lot of cookie dough and drink a lot of wine.” “I had a good time, but I didn’t like how it affected my body,” Decker remarked. “I wasn’t feeling well. I had run out of energy. “I was feeling a little icky.”
