“In Tammie Davis, the southern belle charm of
Reba McEntire blends seamlessly with the
country-rock sass of Carrie Underwood.”
This is a story about a young lady who put her dreams on hold but then as fate had it, she quotes, “It’s been like magic from the start.” Let me tell you about a young pianist named Tammie Davis who left her home in North Carolina for Parris Island, SC to serve her country as a United States Marine. This North Carolina, gravel road country girl became a U.S. Marine Sergeant, Marine musician, Navy Achievement Medal recipient and is now the 2011 Carolina Music Awards Female Country Artist of the Year. When you listen to Tammie’s music you may hear influences from Wynonna, Joe Dee Messina, Carrie Underwood and a few others all rolled up into one.
Since 2009, when Tammie's career was launched professionally as a country music artist and songwriter, she has been named Female Country Artist of the Year for the Queen City Music Awards based in Charlotte, NC as well as three consecutive years of nominations for the Carolina Music Awards prior to winning in 2011.
Quite at home on the music charts, Tammie’s debut single, Tall Dark & Lonesome, charted for thirteen solid weeks after the national radio release hit stations in 2010. In addition to music row airplay, 'Tall Dark & Lonesome' aired in heavy rotation on media/billboard stations like WKML 95.7FM, ‘Carolina’s Best and Most country' for sixteen weeks. During Tammie's first radio tour she visited Jim Quinton, Music Director for WPPL 103.9FM in Blue Ridge, Georgia who said "I Love Tammie Davis! When I first heard Tall Dark & Lonesome, I knew that my listeners in Mountain County were going to love it and indeed they do! Tammie is a modern day Loretta Lynn, just as talented and such a sweetheart – can’t wait to have her back in Mountain Country!”
Since 2009, Tammie has shared stages with country stars like, Billy Dean, The Oak Ridge Boys, Gene Watson, Jeannie Seely, Bucky Covington and performed a pre-concert party for the Zac Brown Band. Tammie’s performance reputation caught the attention of a group of corporate planners in late 2010 when she was asked to perform with Charlie Daniels in Las Vegas at 2011 ConExpo events. Tammie begin to headline shows in 2010 and was showcased the prestigious Friars Club in New York City upon a special invite to perform for club members. Tammie says her highlight of 2011 was performing on stage with Charlie Daniels and being one only two independent artists invited to the 2011 Rapids Jam Music Festival where top country acts like Sugarland, Darius Rucker, Willie Nelson, Colt Ford, and Lady Antebellum all performed.
Since 2010, Tammie has turned heads with her debut CD “It’s A Beautiful Life” which was released to over four-hundred digital distribution outlets. It can be heard streaming on Pandora.com which makes Tammie one of the few independent artists accepted by Pandora. Along with her U.S. airplay, Tammie is receiving airplay in fourteen other countries. Tammie is also getting attention from Nascar with her 2011 invites to perform the National Anthem at the Kansas Speedway and the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
During 2012, Tammie appeared on RFD-TV Virginia Dreams Center Stage TV show and performed across North Carolina and the southeastern United States. Tammie performed the National Anthem all over the U.S. for NASCAR, ARCA and other events. 'It's A Beautiful Life' the single, was released to national radio and was picked up by 140 radio station across the U.S., Europe, Japan and Canada.
