Tammy Cochran Sings of Her “Angels in Waiting”

Tammy Cochran pays tribute to her late brothers in the soaring ballad, “Angels in Waiting” the closing track of her self-titled debut album, which was released on Tuesday (May 1). Much to Cochran’s surprise, Epic asked to release it as a single, based on the strong reaction the song received at her live shows. After a good bit of soul searching — and receiving her parents’ blessing — she assented. “One of my fears was that I didn’t want people to think I was taking my personal loss to gain from it,” she explains. “I wrote the song for my own personal healing, and then when I realized how many other people it helped, I thought, well you know what? It’s kind of selfish of me not to share it! I’m pretty active in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation — my family always has been. So to me it’s like spreading awareness, too.”
