Tim Menzies
This quote was submitted on Friday 6 June 2014.

'Most cannot sing, some learn to sing, and a few are born to sing; Gene Watson is among the few.

God blessed Gene with an expressive heartfelt voice, a natural sense of pitch, and unique phrasing.

The first time I heard Gene, he became one of my favourite singers, and decades later, he still is'.

Thank you, Tim Menzies, for your support of Gene Watson.

About Tim Menzies...

Tim Menzies grew up in Mechanicsville, Virginia where he was born on Tuesday 25 August 1959.

Tim’s Mom, Janet Menzies, fell in love with music early in life and began singing and playing guitar while still a young girl.

In 1952, Janet married Walter Menzies, who became her number one fan and supporter. Janet became a member of Richmond’s 'Old Dominion Barn Dance' and, as each of their five children was born, The Menzies Family Band gained a new member.

The Menzies Family Band performed extensively in Richmond and eventually traveled the East Coast and Canada, sharing their musical gifts with receptive audiences.

The Menzies Family Band frequently performed as the opening act for many future legends in country music, including Johnny Cash (Friday 26 February 1932 - Friday 12 September 2003), Dolly Parton, George Jones (Saturday 12 September 1931 - Friday 26 April 2013), Loretta Lynn and Merle Haggard (Tuesday 6 April 1937 - Wednesday 6 April 2016).

In 1980, Tim Menzies moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music. While playing night clubs in Nashville, Tim met future bandmates Jerry Fox, Jerry Johnston, Joe Van Dyke and Lonnie Wilson. Together they formed Warner Bros. Records recording band, Bandana.

While a member of Bandana, Tim Menzies first experienced recording in the studio, interacting with record labels, publishers and country radio stations across America. While touring and recording with Bandana, Tim met individuals in the Nashville music community who eventually hired him to play and sing on their Nashville music projects. This led Tim to transition from traveling for a living to staying home in Nashville with his wife Brenda and their son Timothy.

Bandana was an American country music band which was composed of Lonnie Wilson (lead vocals), Jerry Fox (bass guitar), Tim Menzies (guitar), Joe Van Dyke (keyboards) and Jerry Ray Johnston (drums).

In 1985, Bandana saw the release of their self titled album, 'Bandana' (Warner Bros. Records, 1985), which was produced by Jim Ed Norman and included four tracks which were hit singles on the Billboard country music singles chart:

'Outside Lookin' In' (written by Jerry Fox and Lon Wilson) (No.18, 1983)
'Better Our Hearts Should Bend (Than Break)' (written by Bill McCarthy) (No.26, 1984)
'It's Just Another Heartache' (written by Rick Giles and Steve Bogard) (No.46, 1985)
'Lovin' Up A Storm' (written by Jerry Fox and Lon Wilson) (No.37, 1985)

Bandana's self titled album, 'Bandana' (Warner Bros. Records, 1985), also included the following tracks:

'Tonight I'm Gonna Love Somebody', which was written by Conway Twitty (Friday 1 September 1933 - Saturday 5 June 1993) and Jamie O'Hara
'Let The Heartache Ride', which was written by Dave Robbins, Tim Dubois and Van Wesley Stephenson (Wednesday 4 November 1953 - Sunday 8 April 2001)
'I'm Leaving' (written by Mike Reid and Troy Seals)
'Heat Of The Night' (written by Jim English and Lon Wilson)
'What Went Wrong' (written by Kurt Howell)
'Good Groove' (written by Bobbi Meyer, Kent Blazy and Toni Dae)

Personnel involved in the recording of Bandana's 'Bandana' (Warner Bros. Records, 1985) included the following:

Tim Menzies (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, vocals)
Lon Wilson (drums, percussion, lead vocals)
Jerry Ray Johnston (drums, percussion, vocals)

Between 1982 and 1986, Bandana also saw the release of a number of non-album singles, which were hits on the Billboard country music singles chart; the tracks included the following:

'Guilty Eyes' (No.37, 1982)

'The Killin' Kind' (No.17, 1982)
'I Can't Get Over You (Getting Over Me)' (No.29, 1983)
'All I Wanna Do (Is Make Love To You)' (No.52, 1984)
'Touch Me' (No.54, 1986)

During the mid-1980s, Tim Menzies began playing guitar on records with artists such as Kenny Rogers, Tammy Wynette (Tuesday 5 May 1942 - Monday 6 April 1998), Waylon Jennings (Tuesday 15 June 1937 - Wednesday 13 February 2002) & Willie Nelson and others.

Recording with prominent artists and top musicians in Nashville was a dream come true for Tim Menzies, but the songs he had written in his boyhood home began a lifelong love of songwriting.

While Tim was making a living playing guitar on records, singing national jingles for Coca Cola, Bonanza Restaurants and Chevrolet Trucks, as well as performing in Nashville venues at night, he continued to develop his songwriting.

Tim Menzies’ songs caught the ear of legendary publisher Bob Beckham and, in March 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.

Eventually, Tim Menzies’ demonstration recordings of his songs attracted producers Bob Montgomery and James Stroud.

On Thursday 22 February 1990, Tim Menzies saw the release of 'Stone By Stone' (Columbia Records, 1990), which was produced by Bob Montgomery and included three tracks which were hit singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks Chart:

'Hometown Advantage' (written by Tony Haselden and Tim Menzies) (No.67, 1989)
'Stone By Stone' (written by Gene Dobbins, Tim Menzies and Glenn Ray) (No.60, 1989)
'You Still Love Me In My Dreams' (written by Tim Menzies) (No.82, 1990)

Tim Menzies' 'Stone By Stone' (Columbia Records, 1990) also included the following tracks:

'Don't Cross Your Heart' (written by Tony Haselden and Tim Menzies)
'Wrong Way To Find Mr. Right' (written by Debbie Hupp and Tim Menzies)
'Too Close To Tulsa' (written by Gene Dobbins, Tim Menzies and Glenn Ray)
'I Wish His Future Was Ahead Of Me' (written by Tim Menzies)
'I've Got To Hand It To You' (written by Gene Dobbins, Tim Menzies and Glenn Ray)
'Fork In The Road' (written by Tim Menzies)
'You Can't Throw Dirt' (written by Tony Haselden and Tim Menzies)

It was also in 1990 that Tim Menzies signed with another legendary Publisher, Pat Higdon.

On Tuesday 11 August 1992, Tim Menzies saw the release of 'This Ol' Heart' (Giant Records, 1992), which was produced by James Stroud and included three tracks which were hit singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks Chart:

'This Ol' Heart' (No.53, 1992)
'That's Good' (No.52, 1992)
'She Dreams' (No.74, 1993)

Tim Menzies' 'This Ol' Heart' (Giant Records, 1992) also included the following tracks:

'He'll Use His Wings'
'You Gotta Swim'
'America for Sale'
'Daddy's Shoes'
'I've Got A Heart'

Eddie Bayers (drums)
James Stroud (percussion)

While these albums, 'Stone By Stone' (Columbia Records, 1990) and 'This Ol' Heart' (Giant Records, 1992), did not garner the commercial success for which Tim Menzies had hoped, they did become another means of artists hearing and recording the songs Tim had written.

Throughout the 1990′s, Tim Menzies continued to enjoy hearing his songs sung by some of the most gifted singers in Nashville, including the following:

George Jones (Saturday 12 September 1931 - Friday 26 April 2013)

Jon Randall: 'What You Don't Know' (RCA Nashville Records, 1995)

Jon Randall recorded Tim Menzies' 'This Heart' (co-written with Tony Haselden) and included the track on 'What You Don't Know' (RCA Nashville Records, 1995).


On Tuesday 19 March 2002, Tim Menzies saw the release of the self-titled album 'Tim Mensy' (PJM Records, 2002).

Tim Menzies’ wife Brenda grew up in the Church. When their son Timothy was a toddler, the Holy Spirit compelled Brenda to raise him in the Church, as she had been. After many months of their attending without Tim, the Lord employed five-year old Timothy to compel his Dad to attend with the family.

Tim Menzies began attending Church with his family and soon felt the movement of the Holy Spirit in his life. In 1991, Tim joined a small Bible Study group with Brenda and, while studying God’s Word, Tim received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour. When Tim wasn’t writing songs, he was absorbed in God’s Holy Word. Over the next several years, God increasingly called and equipped Tim to teach others about the Holy Scriptures, resulting in Tim leading and teaching hundreds of Bible classes and being blessed to witness God’s Word transform lives.

Through a series of promptings and circumstances over the following years, Tim Menzies discerned the Lord was calling him to record a Christian album. At the perfect time, God led Tim to Ben Isaacs of The Isaacs, nationally acclaimed and awarded Christian singing family.

In July 2013, Tim Menzies, along with Ben Isaacs and recording engineer Mark Capps, began recording Tim’s first Christian album. Through the recording process, Tim Menzie’s lifelong love of music, his relationship with Jesus and Ben Isaacs' gifts as a producer resulted in Tim’s new album, 'His Way Of Loving Me' (Tim Menzies Music, 2014).

'His Way Of Loving Me' (Tim Menzies Music, 2014) is Tim Menzies' first foray into Christian music. The album is also Tim Menzies' much anticipated release in over a decade and features three of Tim Menzies' songs formerly recorded by other artists, two hymns and six newly released originals.

Personnel involved in the recording of Tim Menzies' 'His Way Of Loving Me' (Tim Menzies Music, 2014) included the following:

Ben Isaacs (bass)
Aubrey Haynie (fiddle, viola, mandolin)
Rob Ickes (dobro)
Bryan Sutton (acoustic guitar, banjo)
Gordon Mote (piano)
Kelly Back (electric guitar)
Greg Morrow (drums, percussion)
Tim Menzies (acoustic guitar, resonator guitar)
