ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tommie Branch grew-up in a small town in Franklin, VA. In a one bed-room house, seven kids in one bed, while his mother slept on the couch. His mother would send him fishing without a pole. She would say to him, "Sit beside a man with a tackle box, and don't disturb him. Just pretend to do what he does, and he will give you some of his fish." After listening to his mother, Tommie came home with more fish then he could hold. Years later he wrote a song about the experience entitled, "Cast Your Line". This song is on Tommie's new album, Broken Branch Vol.1. Music found Tommie thru his wife, she was watching the Country music videos. When she told him that he sounded like that, and that he should pursue music. So Tommie went from cleaning to singing, and becoming a prolific songwriter of Bluegrass and Country songs.

This CD is awesome! Tommie's songs and voice are so unique and original. Most songs nowadays have only a good beat or good lyrics, but his have both. Some of the best country music I have heard in years, you will not be disappointed! I can not wait to hear more.

One Man's Opinion
The first time I heard him, I know he was hot! When he was thru I said, "I have three questions for you? Why aren't you already famous, Why haven't you already cut a CD, and When are you going to cut one?" He puts me in the mind of Randy Travis, who's a nature..but other than that he stands alone. He told me his CD is on it's way and they call him Broken Branch. I told him that there's nothing broke about him, there's not a crack in his voice. I put my money where my mouth is, I just bought his CD.

Notice the picture on the CD cover, then read the notes about Tommie's wife saying he sounds like a Country music artist! Get it??? This guy is unique!!! His music IS Country, but it's also UNIVERSAL! His songs touch everyone's lives, especially when you realize that (except for the "upper class") "everybody's living on a shoestring budget, boy, you're NOT ALONE" The slogan on the back of the CD cover is: "You Can Rise Above It" and refers to everything that gets us down, like poverty, racism, drug/alcohol addiction and disability. Tommie helps us soothe our woes with his excellent music!
