His songs have been recorded by George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Kenny Rogers, Reba McEntire, Trisha Yearwood, Randy Travis, Patty Loveless, Toby Keith, Shenandoah, Martina McBride and Trace Adkins, among others. Menzies has also been a sought-after session musician, playing guitar on recordings by Kenny Rogers, Tammy Wynette, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, to name a few. Upon moving to Nashville in 1980, Menzies began his professional career as a founding member of the acclaimed Warner Bros. country group Bandana. Following a five-year tenure with the band, he released solo albums under the moniker Tim Mensy on Columbia Records and Giant Records before shifting his focus to songwriting. Reba McEntire’s “Love Needs A Holiday”; “Mama Knows” by Shenandoah; Mark Chesnutt’s #1 hit “I Just Wanted You To Know”; the Doug Stone chart-topper “I Thought It Was You”; and “If You Were The Friend,” recorded by Tammy Wynette as well as Kenny Rogers, are among Menzies’ most noteworthy compositions. Menzies became a Christian in 1991 and the trajectory of his personal and professional life shifted dramatically. His debut Christian recording, the GRAMMY-nominated His Way of Loving Me, bowed in 2014, followed by the GRAMMY-nominated His Name Is Jesus in 2019.
