A bit about Amy:
Raised in San Dimas California, Amy has been singing since the age of
three. Mother of 4, she finally lived out her dream that has always been rooted
in country music. While in Nashville, Amy caught the attention of many industry
professionals for her powerful vocals and passion for supporting our troops.
Amy was featured in the July 09 issue of Country Weekly Magazine as well as
the Sept 09 cover story for Nashville Music Guide. Her contagious spirit and her
passion resonate to all who hear her. She has overcome tremendous
circumstances and obstacles and now uses that to bring hope and
encouragement through her music. Amy’s Patriotism shines through in her known
traditional version of the National Anthem. In 2011 Amy was chosen to perform
the National Anthem at Dodger Stadium for the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. Amy
performed at Dodger Stadium at the request of the United States Army, Los
Angeles Recruiting Battalion.
Since 2008, Amy has opened for many country music greats including;
Trace Adkins, Clint Black, Charlie Daniels, Little Texas, Hal Katchum, Phil
Vassar, Josh Gracin and others. Amy's single “Coming Home” written by Dave
Adams and produced by Paul McKenna is a celebration song for our heroes.
Amy was officially endorsed by the American Veterans (AMVETS) service
foundation for California from 2009 through 2011. At the beginning of 2010 Amy
decided to set aside touring and dedicate her musical talents completely to the
Veterans and Troops for all her performances. Amy’s oldest son, Ryan Scruggs,
stepped into lead guitar in 2011 and shared the stage and dream with her by
performing alongside her. Ryan is also credited with writing much of their new
music. After years of life changing work behind her, Amy took a break from
touring full time and she reentered the business world. Amy now resides in San
Diego, CA and performs upon request at events honoring our veterans and
heroes, while continuing to appear for speaking engagements. She continues
outreach to the veteran community and women’s and children’s organizations
while enjoying her position as Business Development Manager for New American
Funding of San Diego. Amy continues to use her life experiences as humorous
stories to help encourage people to have a healthy, positive perspective for daily
life and its many challenges
