Tammie Davis, an up and coming Nashville Recording Artist and songwriter from Lincolnton, N.C., was accepted into the United States Marine Corps as a Marine Musician & Pianist. She became the featured vocalist at Marine Corps Base Quantico for Marine band concerts and events.
In 2006 something happened that would change her life forever. Just minutes after joining an online dating service, Tammie received an e-mail from a man that would bring new love and direction to her music. The old adage, love at first sight seems appropriate. For shortly after Tammie and Mike met, Mike saw not only the love of his life in Tammie, but also recognized her tremendous musical talents as being unique and refreshingly special.
Mike's belief in her talents and musical ability, along with his insistent encouragement gave Tammie the boost she needed to take her career to a new and higher level. Tammie's uneasy resistance did not deter Mike's faith, nor his unrelenting persistence. Mike and Tammie married in November of that year, and he continued encouraging her to pursue her singing. Mike's love and encouragement were all she had needed all along.
Tammie met Nashville Producer Tim Sidden and amazing things began to fall neatly into place. With Tim as her producer and Mike by her side, Tammie recorded the first five original songs at Hilltop Recording Studios in Nashville, TN. One of the songs Tammie recorded that particular day was a song penned by Sidden and 'Always And Forever" has become the title track to Tammie's debut EP and her first single release. Tammie's CD is scheduled to be released in January 2010.
The banter being heard on Nashville's famed Music Row recently has been Tammie's songs and her unique sultry voice are a breath of fresh air to the Nashville music industry. Some are already calling Tammie and Mike the modern day "Loretta & Doo Lynn".
Stay tuned, this could very well be the ride of a lifetime.
Tammie took on Nashville with Nashville Record Producer, Tim Sidden. Teaming up with some of the best musicians in the country, Tammie recorded five original songs of a ten song CD which has been released to Country Radio in the U.S. A formal overseas release is planned for the near future, however, some overseas stations are already playing Tammie's music.
Tammie has been accepted into the small Nashville community as a star on the horizon. Nashville veteran music insiders have begun to include her in their circle of friends. To say that she was a hit on Nashville's Music Row would be an understatement. What's more, this success has spilled over to Radio DJ's around the world. In test markets, Tammie has already hit number one on several charts.
While Tammie has already topped the charts on several charting stations in the U.S., she has been placed on the fast track to success. Tammie's song "Sexy Little Note" was number #1 for 11 weeks on Hot Country Radio this year.
Tammie was chosen to be a featured artist in the brand new "Ladies of Country Music" magazine, which is scheduled for release in the coming months.
Tammie is a 2009 Carolina Music Awards 2009 Female Country Artist of the Year Nominee.
