Wade Trammell was born on October 3rd 1992 in Rome Georgia. He spent the first 3 years of his life in a small town of Centre Alabama. He then moved to Chattanooga Tn where he attended school at Boyd Buchanan School from kindergarden on. Early in life Wade grew up singing in the kids church choir and sang solos for his home church at First Baptist in Centre Alabama. Wade grew up a big country music fan listening to some of his favorite artists such as Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney and so many more. Wade grew up being very close to his uncle Master Sergeant Warren Richey who spent his career in the Air Force serving his country. Wade's biggest dream was to join the military and follow in his uncles foot steps. While still in middle school Wade was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and couldn't enlist in the Air Force. He spent his high school years searching for who he wanted to be. Wade has always been inspired by music mainly through his stepdad Buddy Barnes. Wade started playing drums at age 10 and quickly developed the ability to become the full time drummer at his church for several years under the direction of his stepdad, Buddy. Wade was a member of the Boyd Buchanan High School marching band where he played bass drum. Singing or just being in front of people was always a fear that Wade had. He knew the glory of being a recording artist from attending numerous Brad Paisley concerts and often pictured himself in the spotlight. In February of 2009, Wade attended yet another Paisley concert and says that something just clicked in his head and that music was what he wanted to do. Shortly after seeing the fun and the excitement that music brought one of his music idols, at 16, Wade bought his first guitar and taught himself to play. He was then introduced to Grammy nominee and producer Brandon Barnes who had several number one hits for R&B super star Brian McKnight such as "Anytime" and " One Last Cry." Wade's first song titled "Remember Me," was one of the first songs recorded with Barnes. The two went on to record many more with one in particular that has stood out among many of Wade Trammell's fans. The song titled "American Hero has been a big part in Wade's local success around Chattanooga Tennessee and most of northeast Alabama. He wrote the song to pay tribute to SrA. Mark A. Forester who was a combat controller in the Air Force. "It was the craziest thing" said wade. " All the years I dreamed of fighting for my country I never knew I would have the ability to use my voice to highlight the sacrifice of not only a man that was in the branch of service that I wanted to be in but the sacrifice of each and every member of our military." Since the song was recorded, Wade has traveled to California to perform the song for the 362nd Air force Recruiting squadron at an annual squadron event. Wade was awarded a general's coin as well as a commanders coin which was a huge honor. In February of 2012 Wade organized an event to give back to the Wounded Warrior Family Foundation of Alabama. Wade put in a lot of hard work and sweat to bring this event to northeast Alabama by doing his own promotions for the event with the help of a man by the name of Joel Helms and the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce in Centre Alabama. The work paid off with the attendance of the show over 1,000. Wade says the feeling he had walking out on that stage to give back to the military was a feeling like no other. The family of Mark Forester was in attendance and was recognized during the show and received a personal and very emotional performance of the song American Hero. Since then Wade has had so many opportunities in the Music business. Wade recently signed a publishing deal with Best Built Songs in Nashville Tn. Wade now is working along side producers Larry Sheridan and Robin Ruddy building up a strong writers catalog and many relationships between many of todays most talented professionals in the music industry. Wade was voted in the top 5 local acts in chattanooga by the country radio station US101 Country to open for Lauren Alaina which was a huge honor in itself. Wade is excited to see what the future holds for him in his career in the music industry.
