“To say I am excited about this new album is an understatement. I believe ‘Who I Am’ is the best project I’ve ever delivered. My fans know you can’t put me in a box and simply slap a label on my music. I love to play a country shuffle, and I love to make that piano rock. I love songs that paint a picture as well as songs that bring a tear because life isn’t always happy. I love songs that make you laugh, and I especially love songs that praise my Lord and Savior. My new album connects all of the pieces of my musical puzzle and gives you a true picture of ‘Who I Am,’ shares Atwood. “This album is me.”
With over 8,500 appearances on the Grand Ole Opry stage, Atwood has performed alongside nearly four decades of country music hitmakers including George Jones, Dolly Parton, The Oak Ridge Boys, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, and Taylor Swift. With this fourth solo studio offering, it is apparent once again that Atwood learned from the best and has emerged as a premier stylist himself with a mantle full of awards, honors, and hall of fame inductions to prove it, including his upcoming March 13, 2021 induction into the North American Country Music Hall of Fame.
“I spent a year producing ‘Who I Am,’ writing and selecting songs that are meaningful to me,” explains Atwood. “It is personal. Over thirty years ago, I played every instrument on the demo for Confederate Railroad’s “Somewhere Stoned Playin’ Pinball.” That song just stuck with me all these years later. “You First” chronicles a big piece of my life story–a story for anyone who has ever lost a loved one. And “Sending Me Angels” is a powerful song of redemption for me. It is the song I sang to my wife on our wedding day–a song I feel is especially important to us in today’s time: When all feels lost, look heavenward. I know from experience, the angels are there. It can not go unsaid that I want to thank Gus Arrendale and Springer Mountain Farms. Their help and support allowed me to record the music I love, with the musicians I love, for the people I love. My heart is full.”
“Sending Me Angels” is one of those songs that has the ability to move the listener to tears. Most of us have faced challenges and loss in our lifetime, but if we are quiet and pay attention, we see the angels that are sent to us in our time of need. Tim Atwood brings this song to life with his own emotions flowing through each note and lyric. It is beautiful knowing we are not alone and God keeps sending us angels to get us through!” – Missy Wolf, Center Stage Magazine
