Raised in Middlesboro, KY, smack dab in the middle of the Bible and Bluegrass belt, Tammy's love for Bluegrass was nurtured right along with her faith. Her father played mandolin and was a huge Bluegrass fan. During her formative years, her home was filled with the music of artists like Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs and Jim & Jesse, which had a huge influence on her music.
Despite her recent arrival to Bluegrass, Tammy Jones Robinette is definitely not new to the world of music, having already built an incredibly successful career as a top Southern Gospel artist and songwriter. Last year, she celebrated two back to back #1s and was named "Favorite Female Vocalist" at the 2015 Gospel Music Fan Awards.
Tammy Jones Robinette & The Drive is Tammy’s second Bluegrass album and debut album for Rural Rhythm Records. Once again, she has partnered with Mark Fain (versatile bass player and longtime band member of Ricky Skaggs' Kentucky Thunder) as producer and has assembled a collection of superstar pickers for support: Mark Fain on bass, Aubrey Haynie on fiddle, Ron Block on banjo, Seth Taylor on rhythm guitar, Rob Ickes on dobro and the legendary Sam Bush on mandolin. Steve Gulley, The Whites, Jimmy Fortune and Dale Ann Bradley are providing supporting vocals.
