Tammy Cochran offers soldiers something extra

Thursday, November 29, 2007 – Purchase Tammy Cochran's new CD, and a soldier will benefit as well.

The singer said that those fans buying "Where I Am," will result in a second copy being sent via care packages unable to make it home for the holidays.

Earlier in her career, Cochran did several performances in a Spirit of America tour, leading her to write "On My Side of the World." This is 1 of 12 songs on "Where I Am."

In an open letter posted on her official website and also on her MySpace page, Cochran wrote, "A lot of our service men and women don't get care packages from 'home', and we would like to change that!!!! We would like to send them a little encouragement and support in these care packages!!!"

Cochran recently created a new page separate from her official artist MySpace, which is dedicated to soldiers and their families and friends awaiting their return home. Cochran wanted to have a place where fans to could gather and share their personal stories with her and also with fellow fans and friends. This new page is also named after her song, "On My Side of the World" and can be accessed at http://www.myspace.com/onsideoftheworld.

Fans can buy the "A Song For a Soldier: Where I Am + One" combo pack at Cochran's official website at http://www.tammycochranfans.com!

CD reviews for Tammy Cochran

Where I Am CD review - Where I Am
Tammy Cochran is an optimist. That much was clear in her 2001 hit, "Angels in Waiting," about her two brothers who died of cystic fibrosis. Her new album focuses on less weighty issues - mainly the lifestyle of the single girl - but is filled with the same hopeful tone. The album covers relationships from first impressions in "Chemistry" and "And More" through to a long overdue end in "So Long" and getting on with your life in "As Soon as I'm Over You. »»»
Life Happened
Even though Tammy Cochran has as much pure vocal power as the next diva, her singing always draws you helplessly into her web, instead of bowling you over. She also has the good sense to choose - or write - songs that tell stories, instead of settling for the kind of half-witted wordplay trying to pass itself off as songwriting these days. A winning album, much like life itself, doesn't just happen: Memorably recorded works of art are created with dedicated love and care, which is exactly how »»»
Tammy Cochran
Tammy Cochran is an extraordinary singer. Despite inconsistent material on her self-titled debut, she transcends the formulaic limitations of some of the songs with a determination and depth of feeling that's hard to resist. At her best, she merits comparison to singers like Ray Price, Barbara Mandrell and Loretta Lynn, among her childhood models. The first song, "I Cry," sets the tone, with her expressive voice giving extra weight to the song, a defiantly upbeat bit of country-pop. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Live, Shelley proves she's the real deal – After the concert, Joan Shelley was greeted by a fan at the near sold-out club who had never seen her before.

The fan walked away mighty impressed -based on her comments - and it was easy to see why.... »»»
