Wanette's grandfather told her, 'There is so much good that can be done in this life as long as you don't care who gets the credit." After years of working with children and youth at her church, she knew she wanted to do something for families with children, after seeing so much poverty. Wanette toured as an entertainer for many years and is now a tv audience producer, author, singer/songwriter and mother of a fast rising country artist, in Nashville.
"One day after being around music and witnessing its power to inspire, heal, to move and lift people up, I realized that there are many musical artists and industry professionals who have amazing influence, but haven't necessarily figured out a way to give back to the very people who support their music and careers yet. Music Amplifies was birthed from this realization, " says Wanette.

She and her husband Tim (Chief of Berry Hill PD) live in Goodlettsville, TN and have been married for 27 years. Their daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren live in Murfreesboro, TN. She is an active member of The Church at Avenue South in Nashville. Her hobbies include family, church, travel, animals, football, and of course music!
Cindy has always felt the Lord has abundantly blessed her and placed a desire within her to help those who may be in a season of need. Of course, as a nurse, she already had a heart of service and we are fortunate that she chose us to serve through!
Cindy said recently, "As Lainey Wilson has said, 'If you're gonna be a dreamer, you better be a doer.' Let's all come together as DOERS to support the less fortunate in our Middle TN community and AMP UP. I can't wait to meet and work with each of you as Music Amplifies continues to grow!" Let's go, Cindy!
