Through a series of promptings and circumstances over the past few years, Tim discerned the Lord was calling him to record a Christian album. At the perfect time, God led Tim to Ben Isaacs of “The Isaacs,” internationally acclaimed and awarded Christian singing family. In July of 2013, Tim, Ben, and recording engineer Mark Capps, began recording Tim’s first Christian album. Through the recording process, Tim’s lifelong love of music, his relationship with Jesus, and Ben’s gifts as a Producer resulted in Tim’s new album, “His Way Of Loving Me.”
Tim Menzies grew up playing music in Virginia as part of the Menzies family band. In 1980, Tim moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music. By the mid 1980’s, Tim became a sought after session guitarist for artists such as Kenny Rogers, Tammy Wynette, Waylon and Willie and others. Recording with prominent artists and top musicians in Nashville was a dream come true for Tim, but the songs he had written as a boy began a lifelong love of songwriting. In addition to session work, he sang national jingles for Coca Cola, Bonanza Restaurants, and Chevrolet Trucks, as well as performing in Nashville venues at night, always continuing to develop his songwriting. Tim’s songs caught the ear of iconic Publisher/mentor, Bob Beckham, and in March of 1985, Bob signed Tim to Combine Music. As Nashville artists began hearing and recording Tim’s songs, he was able to transition to full time songwriting. Additional artists who have recorded Tim’s songs include George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Kenny Rogers, John Conlee, Gene Watson, Shenandoah, Doug Stone, Diamond Rio, Tracy Lawrence, Shelby Lynn, Reba McEntire, Trisha Yearwood, Mark Chestnutt, Randy Travis, Patty Loveless, Toby Keith, Martina McBride, Joe Diffie, Trace Adkins, Josh Turner and many others.
