In 2020, Carrie Lee released an album with Jazz guitarist, Rafael Chávez y Moreno entitled "Dreaming of Christmas Together." She is co-writing a Thai-American children's book called "Pai The Medicine Man" based on her mother's stories about her childhood on the family rice farm and rural village life in RoiEt, Thailand. Last year, Carrie Lee debuted her one-woman show, Blue Skies Cabaret: exploring Love, War, and Everything in between, as an 80's Asian American Army brat.
