Tammy Jones Robinette started singing when she was 8 years old, at revivals and church services across Ohio and Kentucky.
And she sang with her family on her grandfather’s religious radio program.
Robinette and her three siblings performed at The Jones Family for 12 years.
Then, she made her mark in Nashville as a writer of gospel songs, scoring 26 hits.
Now, Robinette is branching out into bluegrass with a new self-titled album on Rural Rhythm Records.
She wrote four of the songs.
“Be A Kid Again,” the first single off the album, is an uptempo journey down memory lane to childhood.
“The Letter,” a ballad, is about a box filled with letters from a dead son.
“Pages of Time” tells the story of an old mountain cabin where the singer grew up and the parents who are now gone.
“The Colors That Never Ran” is a song about the flag and the men and women who defend it.
“The Man In Those Shoes” is a tribute to working men.
As you would expect from a singer with a background in gospel, there’s a lot of bluegrass gospel on the album — “I Think I’ll Let You Drive,” “I’ve Got To Work On The Ark,” “There’s A Record Book,” “Mama’s In The Sweet By & By,” “My Rock,” “Love God” and “Oh I Want To See Him.”
