To Be a Kid AgainNashville, Tenn., (March 23, 2016)—Tammy Jones Robinette & The Drive’s recently released single, “I Think I’ll Let You Drive,” has continued its climb on Singing News magazine's Bluegrass chart this month, cruising up to the #5 position (May) after entering the chart at #7 for April. Written by Steve Gulley, the latest track is one of many songs from the 12-song, self-titled album that has found its way onto a variety of charts.

The first release from the album, “To Be a Kid Again,” debuted at #6 on Bluegrass Today’s chart last fall. In January, “My Rock” appeared at #8 on Powergrass Radio’s Bluegrass Gospel Chart. In February, the album hit the Top-10 on the Roots Music Report and “Work on the Ark,” debuted at #12 on Roots Music Report’s singles chart.

The album, and its dual activity on both Bluegrass and Gospel charts, are reflective of Robinette’s musical roots. Raised in Middlesboro, KY, a blue-collar town nestled on the Cumberland Gap in the heart of coal country, and in both the Bluegrass and Bible belts, her childhood home was filled with prayer and music. While faith led her to a highly-successful career in Southern Gospel, her deep love for Bluegrass music never subsided, leading Tammy to release her sophomore Bluegrass project, Tammy Jones Robinette & The Drive, on Rural Rhythm Records in October of last year.

Produced by Mark Fain (award-winning bass player/band member of Ricky Skaggs' Kentucky Thunder), Robinette is flanked by a collection of superstar pickers including Fain (bass), Aubrey Haynie (fiddle), Ron Block (banjo), Seth Taylor (rhythm guitar), Rob Ickes (dobro) and the legendary Sam Bush (mandolin). Steve Gulley, Jamie Dailey, Jimmy Fortune, Dale Ann Bradley, Jennifer Wrinkle and David Casteel provide supporting vocals. The album has been well received by both Gospel and Bluegrass fans, as well as critics. For more information of Tammy Jones Robinette & The Drive, please visit
