The Shootout at the I'm OK, You're OK Corral

The first six songs are clever and often hilarious, with inspired lyrics about pop psychology and self-awareness. The next five are rockers and ballads about the power of love, emotional and spiritual growth. A best seller.

BIO
by Pam Grout

When you consider that most of the songs from Nashville are about broken hearts, shattered dreams, and mamas getting run over by pickups, it's no surprise that songwriter Greg Tamblyn finally found a new niche.

Tamblyn is much too successful to sing the country-western blues. He's just released his 6th CD, he's playing concerts all over the country, and he's even a sought after entertainer at health and wellness seminars.

He also leads tours to exotic destinations like China and Peru. (For details, email him at left.)

Tamblyn left his hometown Kansas City in 1986, stifled by a lack of opportunities. Oh sure, he was playing local bars, and he'd been rated "Best Male Vocalist in Kansas City" by a local newspaper. He'd even sold a couple of songs to a country singer from the Philippines. But the lure of Nashville was too great. Eventually, he landed a writing job for a Nashville song publisher.

Along with having some of his songs recorded by country artists, Tamblyn successfully released his own single, "It's Another Joyful Elvis Presley Christmas." It caught the attention of radio stations and reviewers around the country, and was named "Christmas Single of the Year" in Cashbox magazine.

Then the Cayman Islands Hyatt offered him a gig. Remember that pool bar that Gene Hackman sat near in The Firm? The singer in the background could have been Tamblyn. Except by that time, he'd left, burned out by tourists wanting to hear "Margaritaville" for the 896th time. He wanted to sing his own songs.

Soon after that a doctor heard him and asked him to play a wellness conference at Duke University Medical Center. With songs such as "The Shootout at the I'm OK, You're Ok Corral," and "My Life is a Beer Commercial," he was a smash hit.

The brochure for the conference listed Tamblyn as a member of the seminar's faculty. Where initials such as M.D. and Ph.D. followed the other presenter's names, the listing for Tamblyn was followed by N.C.W., which stands for "No Credentials Whatsoever."

With humorous songs about inner guides named Clyde and environmental slowpokes who think the greenhouse effect means crummy tomatoes, Tamblyn has found a huge audience. In addition to his public concerts, he's played for groups as diverse as the Department of Defense and the American Holistic Medical Association.

Stories from his life and songwriting have been featured in several recent books, including "Stressed Is Desserts Spelled Backwards," by Brian Luke Seaward; "Shelter For The Spirit," by Victoria Moran; and "Art and Soul," by Pam Grout.

When things are going rough, this will help you remember the light side
When recovery gets tough, when I think I can't hear one more thing that is 'wrong' with me, this CD reminds me that it is really okay. Greg's music makes me feel that I'm not alone, that life is a process and that laughing at the process and our foibles can help us move through the challenges better. This CD is a real treat.

A good introduction to Greg Tamblyn
My dad accused me of liking country music when I played him one of the songs on this album and I told him, "Well, I like THIS music" and fortunately he left it at that (because I really don't like most country music - too much twang). I later bought this album as a Christmas present for him (since he does like country music) and he LOVES it - he listens to it over and over on his iPhone. Almost all of the songs have great country style without too much twang, and a lot of edgy humor. The last song, Have a Little Faith, has more of a rock style to it with some great bass, and it is one of my two favorites on this album, along with "Can't Blame the Wreck on the Train" which is definitely country. Overall it's a very strong album with a nice variety of styles. Also, Greg won a Posi Award in 2012 for "Love Will Come Around" along with his co-writer on the song, Lance Cowan.

Great CD, Greg! Had us all rolling on the floor!
Wonderful, funny, right-on-target! For most of us who are usually pretty serious about this stuff, it was a great break from the usual, and everyone enjoyed it!

Loved the CD and the songs included. Liked Greg's voice.
Got the CD in good time and shape. Glad to finally get the words to CAN'T BLAME THE TRAIN and to know who wrote them.
The other songs were interesting and I loved the presentation.

Touching, funny and real to life.
This is a wonderful CD. With songs that both make you laugh and touch your heart. I have had so many family and friends ask who the author of these songs were as I had the CD playing. I am a nurse and the song about Evy's story is quite touching. It is even more heartfelt when you know that it is a true story about the power of unconditional love and healing.

Loved it!
Really enjoyed "the Little Soul in Space" - if only we could all realize that life is that simple!
Thank you Greg!

Can't say enough about this wonderful CD!!!
I had heard three of the songs on this CD by another artist ("I Have a Tendency for Codependency", "It's Never Too Late to Have a Happy Childhood", and "You Can't Blame The Train"), so I had a feeling I was going to like this CD. But I was totally blown away when I heard "Unconditional Love"! Like Evy, I have a nerve disease, and am hoping to have a healing. I've been listening to that song over and over... When people see me get up out of my wheelchair and walk, I'll be sure to give some of the credit to Greg! In addition to being a wonderful musician (and a down-to-earth funny guy), he's an amazing spirit!
