Tammy has been singing Gospel music since childhood, touring with her mother and father as The Jones Family. As she grew older, songwriting became a chief interest, and a number of her songs placed high in the Singing News chart before she embarked on a solo singing career n the mid-1990s. Since that time Tammy has seen another 26 of her songs on the charts.
While she and her husband, Jim, have long been bluegrass fans, this will be their first album devoted solely to this kind of music.
They have enlisted an A-list team of pickers and singers in support of Let It Shine. Playing bass and producing is Mark Fain, with Ron Block on guitar and banjo, Aubrey Haynie on fiddle, Andy Leftwich on mandolin, and Rob Ickes on reso-guitar. Assisting with harmony vocals are Jamie Dailey, Jeff Parker, Dale Ann Bradley, Steve Gulley, Cheryl White, Sharon Skaggs, and Jeff Pedersen.
The new CD is available now from popular download sites, and on CD from her web site.
