Tim Menzies “His Name Is Jesus” Album Release Show With Ben Isaacs 2/24
Tim Menzies grew up playing music in Virginia as part of the Menzies family band. In 1980, Tim moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music. During the mid 1980’s, Tim began playing guitar on records with artist such as Kenny Rogers, Tammy Wynette, Waylon and Willie and others. Recording with prominent artists and top musicians in Nashville was a dream come true for Tim, but the songs he had written as a boy 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’s songs caught the ear of legendary Publisher, Bob Beckham, and in March of 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.
Some artists who have recorded Tim’s songs include George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Kenny Rogers, John Conlee, Gene Watson, Shenandoah, Doug Stone, Diamond Rio, Tracy Lawrence, Shelby Lynne, Reba McEntire, Trisha Yearwood, Mark Chestnutt, Randy Travis, Patty Loveless, Toby Keith, Martina McBride, Joe Diffie, Trace Adkins, Josh Turner, The Bowling Family, and many others.
In 1991, Tim started attending church and joined a small Bible Study group with his wife Brenda; while studying God’s Word, Tim received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. 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.
In 2013, Tim, Producer Ben Isaacs, and recording engineer Mark Capps, began recording Tim’s first Christian album. Through the recording process, Tim’s lifelong love of music, his relationship with Jesus, and Ben’s gifts as a Producer resulted in Tim’s GRAMMY nominated album, “His Way Of Loving Me.”
In 2019 Tim, Ben, and Mark released a new album entitled, “His Name Is Jesus.” Along with newly written songs from Tim, and a few classics such as “Something About That Name,” and “Walking In Jerusalem,” Tim is honored to be joined by many gifted guest vocalists on “His Name Is Jesus” including The Isaacs, The Gaither Vocal Band, Vince Gill, Karen Peck, and Rhonda Vincent.
Tim is most honored and thankful for the opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through “The Word And Song.”
