I’m a few weeks late in getting around to Tammy Vice’s latest album, “More Than Just Getting By,” but it hasn’t lost anything in the wait.
It’s been more than a decade since Vice moved from her native Mobile to Nashville, but she’s still remembered by fellow former members of the Mobile Songwriters Association and other friends.
On “More Than Just Getting By,” those friends will quickly see that Vice has continued to develop songwriting interests she’s had for years. She walks the line between country and Christian music; sometimes the Gospel message is clear enough that the music is called Christian country; other times it’s more subtle, and simply calling it positive country, as some practitioners do, covers it quite well.
What jumps out immediately about this album is its clear, refreshing tone. Released by GodsChild Records, Vice’s label for years, it has a warm, rich sound based on the skillful arrangement of acoustic instruments.
Probably the hardest thing about country music is writing about simple touchstones of daily life without becoming corny. Once you’ve committed to writing only positive messages, unrelieved sweetness can also make an album’s worth of songs too syrupy for the listener to swallow at a sitting.
On “More Than Just Getting By,” Vice skates around both hazards so gracefully you’d never know they were there.
Music meant to be uplifting often glosses over the fact that it’s a hard world. Vice has reached a point in her songwriting where she acknowledges that while having faith can sustain a person, it doesn’t automatically make life easier.
The best of these songs are ripe to be picked up by some of Nashville’s big names. Mainstream country would be the better for it.

Bio

This Nashville recording artist is produced by GodsChild Records.
Originally from Mobile, Alabama, Tammy has performed her music nationwide at special events, festivals, churches, conferences, workshops, and music venues, including Nashville’s prestigious Bluebird Cafe. She has also appeared on worldwide television and radio programs. She was the Country Music Hall of Fame's 2009 nominee for the Mary Catherine Strobble Award.

As a songwriter and artist, Tammy has had four songs hit #1 on Christian and Country charts. Also among her writing credits is the theme song for "Come On In" with host Melanie Walker, currently playing on the TCT Network.

Tammy is the originator and host of the annual “Breaking The Chains” event held at the Bluebird, each year in April, to promote autism awareness. She has become a strong advocate after her younger daughter, Morgan, was diagnosed at age 3.

The purpose of Know The Hope is to support and strengthen families. Tammy integrates autism awareness into her program to help families like her own adapt to the everyday challenges of raising children with special needs, and give guidance to faith communities on how to include families with disabilities.

"Autism is a life long neurological disorder that effects as many as 1 in 110 individuals according to the CDC. Early diagnosis and treatment are essential to help them lead full independent lives."
