A tongue in cheek Americana vocal and lyric with Country production
Bio: Amy Ames’ Bio Texas singer/songwriter Amy Ames feels right at home in Los Angeles, California. The sunny West Coast has allowed her to pursue her passion of music of singing and video taping at the famous Cowboy Palace Saloon with Grammy Nominated Chad Watson and the Chad Watson Band. Most recently, she has spent much of her time recording music for her upcoming CD, "Do Drop In."
Ames was born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota and graduated from Duluth East High School. She went on to college to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Minnesota, where she graduated cum laude. After graduating, she moved to Texas to live with her grandmother. Amy’s granny loved to sing at the local bars in the Rio Grande Valley and would take Amy along. It wasn’t long before a neighbor called Amy’s father and reported her for staying out till the cows came home with her grandma. Upon being shocked, her father insisted she move back to Minnesota! But it was too late. Amy was in love with a Texas man by the Rio Grande. They married and had a daughter and 2 sons.
Initially, Ames and her daughter, Jackie Martinez, started writing zany commercials together, which were later formed into songs. After writing songs and recording, Ames titled her first upbeat effort, You Bug Me, Honey!, which has earned her the crown of “Country Music’s Funniest Woman.” Her second project reflects on her own personal journey, All God's Children Living with Autism, which shares the joys and challenges of raising a child with autism. Her autistic son, Sam, started composing classical music at the age of 10 and is now finishing up his own classical music CD. Ames’ third CD, self titled Amy Ames, got the attention of Nashville by quickly moving to the No.1 position on the Global Americana Charts www.AirplayDirect.com last July. Recently she had a No. 11 hit at http://www.hotdisc.net with her line dance song "Bedroom Blues". Also, Amy's comical song, "Holy Balls" had the No. 1 spot on Country & Western Music Radio Show (CMA Member) Radio Beiaard 106.3 FM.

Press Release: "...trust me, you have GOT to listen to “No Beer Here” by Amy Ames. It is a complete hoot. AMY AMES/No Beer Here Writer: Amy Ames; Producer: Eddie Hedges; Publisher: Amy Ames/Eddie Hedges, BMI; Grand Channel (CDX) (http://www.amyames.com/) —This toe tapper has zippy fiddling, dandy banjo plunking and hilarious backup men practically burping their lines. The whole thing is so goofy and zany that it doesn’t even matter that she can just barely sing. Must be heard to be believed.
