Tammy returned in August with her highly anticipated studio release in almost 5 years and shines brighter than ever. “This musical offering has brought me to the most beautiful season yet on my personal journey from love to loss and into a deeper understanding of God’s faithful commitment to us through life’s growing moments.”
Her new album, SUNNY DAYS, is packed with strong infectious melodies and is lyrically covered with the promises of Hope. Trent, who co-wrote 8 of the 10 songs says, “Although this is my sixth studio record, it’s the first album that I can truly say really captured everything that is soo important to me. All these songs are my way of responding to God’s sustaining grace in my life. I love to worship and feel captured by the Father when I just can’t seem to breathe on my own; I love to dance because it’s sooo freeing and injects soo much fun and joy into my life; and I’m still over the moon excited about sharing my faith and hope with those that feel like leaning in for a listen.”
Since 1995, Trent has been a familiar voice on Christian radio with a string of hits, including “Your Love Is 4 Always”, “It’s All About You”, “Run To The Cross”, “My Irreplaceable”, and “Welcome Home”. She stepped away from the spotlight in 2001 after the tragic death of her husband in a diving accident, returning as a featured speaker and performer at the Women of Faith conferences in 2003. Trent spent four years with Women of Faith and was also a featured speaker and performer on the organization’s “The Revolve Tour” for teen girls, for two years. Since that time Tammy has maintained a very busy touring schedule, speaking and singing at women’s events all over the world.
Tammy’s dedication to the ministry was recognized in November of 2009 & 2010 when the Christian Music Hall of Fame handed her the award forInspirational Female Vocalist of the Year!
She is also the author of Learning to Breathe Again: Choosing Life and Finding Hope After A Shattering Loss (W Publishing), Beyond The Sorrow: There’s Hope in the Promises of God (J. Countryman), and she co-penned the hilarious & brilliantly illustrated Children’s Potty Training book The Log Family: See You at the Beach (September Day) with her late husband Trent Lenderink who sadly never got to see his work completed.
“SUNNY DAYS” – Well I sat in the studio talking to my producer one day about this song I wanted to write. I told him I had the title for my new album written down on a sticky note on my computer at home for the last 3 years, and that I wanted to write a fun song reminding the listener to embrace the seasons of life, however hard they may seem….this too shall pass….the sun will always come out again….and with it comes new life….new bloom….new growth. God is soo committed to us and will never let us go. This is my song welcoming a new season of life on my own journey of loss and triumph, too. Yes, there are rainy days, but there are also amazing sunny days. Both are a part of the seasons of life, and they have their own distinct purposes. Troubles are all around us and they do not discriminate in their visitations. Problems are a part of life. It is also part of life too – if you choose – to find resolution and growth in the challenges you face.
(Psalm 103:15-16, ESV)
“FALL AT YOUR FEET” – We often think of Worship as being the songs that we sing to God on Sunday morning. We can often make it about the music. But really it’s who we are and the way we live our lives that counts before God. Our worship must engage our spirt in the pursuit of truth. That’s the type of person the Father is out looking for and this Worship song that I wrote, is my way of responding to Him in my pursuit of truth. The amazing truth is, HE alone is our shelter, our hope, our healer, our passion, our peace and our mighty rock and redeemer in the very midst of life and all the ups and downs it can bring. What, if anything, should we fear? Nothing. I will fall at your feet and I WILL WORSHIP YOU, JESUS through it all. (John 4:23, ESV)
** NOTE: The original Welcome Home was a top 10 hit in June of 1997
“WELCOME HOME” – What can I say about this timeless song? It has meant soo much to me since I first recorded it in 1997 and it became a huge top 10 radio hit for me in June of that year. I guess you’d call this my “signature song” and one I’m soo proud to sing. Not just because of the music, but because of the powerful lyrics. It’s a song about the prodigal coming back home because of the love and mercy of God. He’s always waiting for our return when we doubt the way or the truth and wander from time to time. I love that promise that He’ll never leave through it all. I still put this song on every set list I’ve written for my events. And now, I re-recorded it on my new album and gave it a new sound without taking anything away from what made it so special 16 years ago. (Luke 15:11-32)
