“Amber D has an amazing voice! She continues to carry on with that unique style which makes her voice one of the finest female country vocalists! Her voice touches my heart and my soul.” – Ronnie Milsap, Country Music Legend
Texas claims Amber Digby, but her roots (both musically and geographically) lie in Nashville, TN. Born and raised in the birthplace of Country Music, Amber comes from a long line of Classic Country Music Royalty. Amber’s father is Dennis Digby, longtime bass player in the Coal Miners, Loretta Lynn’s road band. Amber’s mother, Dee, was a backup singer for artists such as Connie Smith. Amber’s stepfather, Dicky Overbey, is a steel guitar legend who recorded and performed with Faron Young, Connie Smith, Hank Williams, Jr., Ronnie Milsap, and Johnny Bush. And Amber is the niece of Darrell McCall, who garnered a #1 hit when he wrote “Eleven Roses”, on top of his own solo top 40 hits.
Although Amber is certainly in the family business, she is breaking ground in modern country music. In December, 2009, she released her 4th CD, “Another Way to Live”, with Heart of Texas Records. Following on the heels of 3 critically successful releases, the most recent CD showcases Amber’s newest venture into songwriting. In addition to the songs on this new CD, Amber is writing with some of the best songwriters in Nashville including Grammy nominee Odie Blackmon, hitmaker Dale Dodson, and Grammy Award winning, Country Music Hall of Famer, Vince Gill.
While Amber has toured internationally, playing at festivals in Sweden, Australia, Norway and France, she now has the Grand Ole Opry to her credit. Debuting on December 19, 2009, Amber was introduced and backed by the great Ronnie Milsap.
Amber has made a name for herself with top critics, radio and fans alike as the top female vocalist in music dedicated to country music tradition. But her star is rising in a direction of country music originality – writing songs that echo the themes and melodies of country music roots, while expressing the heart of a young woman in a modern world.
