AMBER DIGBY: the cover of her new CD album: 'Music from the honky tonks'.
At 23 years, Amber Digby has burst on the Country Music scene virtually overnight, with a series of concerts in Europe and the United States. Her latest CD album, 'Music from the honky tonks', a collection of 14 songs, has been much in demand in the last few months. Amber Digby is a pure and honest country singer, with a fabulous voice and a remarkable way of interpretation of her songs, such as 'Here I am again', 'I'm ashamed of you', 'Close up the honky tonks', 'Cowboy lovin' night', and 'The one you slip around with'.
Country music has been a big part of her life for most of her life. Her father, Dennis Digby, spent over 20 years as Loretta Lynn's bass player. Her mother, Dee Jee Overby, sang harmony for sever years on the Grand Ole Opry with Connie Smith. Her uncle is the legendary Darrell McCall. And her step-father, Dicky Overby spent over 40 years playing steel guitar for some of country music's top artists, such as Faron Young, Connie Smith, Hank Williams Jr., and Ronnie Milsap.
The new CD by Amber Digby, 'Music from the honky tonks', is probably the best female country album in the last 30 years--do get a copy, and enjoy!!
