The track, co-written by Turner and Skip Black, and produced by Alejandro Medina III, reflects Turner’s own life story. It’s a heartfelt celebration of diversity and the American spirit, capturing the essence of what it means to be truly "American Made."

"I come from two dirt roads - one from Mexico, and one from California," Turner shares. "Being second-generation Mexican American, it’s important to me to highlight the sacrifices my grandparents made to be part of this country. We all have dreams in our hearts - they followed theirs and became American Made, pero hecho en México. We may not all look the same, and we may come from dos mundos (two different worlds), but we are Americans and American Made. I’m proud to be American and Mexicana. I’m proud to be American Made."

Leah Galvan Turner’s life reads like a country song - a narrative woven with threads of American love and Latin passion. Born to Don Turner, a world champion rodeo star, and Susaña Galvan, a first-generation Mexican American jewelry designer, artist, and ballet dancer, Leah’s story began with a blend of rich cultures. This unique heritage has fueled her fiery spirit and shaped her musical journey, which began at the tender age of three when she first sat down at a piano. Her path, inevitably, led her to Nashville, the heart of country music.

In "American Made," Turner skillfully intertwines her Latin roots with the country music tradition, creating a sound that is both fresh and deeply resonant. Seamlessly blending country and Hispanic elements, Turner adds layers of cultural richness to her music. The song is a testament to her journey and her identity, celebrating the multifaceted nature of what it means to be American. It’s a tribute to her grandparents' sacrifices and dreams, a recognition of her dual heritage, and a celebration of the American Dream.

As the nation prepares to celebrate its independence, Leah Turner's "American Made" offers a timely and touching reminder of the diverse tapestry that makes up the American identity. Through her music, Turner invites listeners to embrace and celebrate the varied stories that contribute to the nation's rich cultural landscape. Her new single is not just a song; it’s an anthem of inclusivity, resilience, and pride.

Turner's powerful narrative and authentic voice make "American Made" a standout track, one that will undoubtedly resonate with many. It’s a reminder that no matter where our stories begin, we can all be part of the American dream, embodying the spirit of being "American Made."
