Lefty encouraged him to play fiddle and sing. Lefty stated that Dee was a "natural" It was shortly afterwards that Lefty asked Dee to meet him in Los Angeles. Dee won the award for "up and coming artist" in 1996. Dee was contracted to preform with major artists such as Johnny Russell, Freddy Hart, Jean Sheppard, and Johnny Rodriquez. Many of them would invite Dee to open their shows.
