Raised in Nashville, Tennessee, the capital of Country Music, Amber Digby is one of the most refreshing country singers in the first decade of the new century. She recorded her first album "Music from the Honky Tonks" in 2002. It received much attention from all over the world, selling worldwide and creating an overwhelming base of fans. For the last two years, her first CD, "Music from the Honky Tonks", and her second project "Here Come The Teardrops" have been at the top of numerous charts on the radio and internet broadcast stations.

Songs off her CDs are favorites among the DJs and listening audience who tune in to XM channel 13, "Willie’s Place". When Amber visited the XM studios, Willie Nelson personally called to thank her for being a part of "Willies Place", and for carrying on the tradition of true country music.

The popularity of her first album resulted in several tours abroad: she performed at the Furuvik Country Festival in Sweden, toured Australia, playing in Melbourne, Sydney, New South Wales and Brisbane. After returning to the US, she performed in Tulsa, Nashville and Forth Worth.

In summer of 2006, Amber signed with Heart of Texas Records (based in Brady, TX) and released her second CD, "Here Come the Teardrops", sending her back for another European tour, to Sweden and Norway. Digby just returned from a trip to France where she headlined her own shows and worked with John Schneider (of Dukes of Hazard fame).

By the readers of the Scandinavian magazine, "Kounty Korall", she was recently voted "Female Artist of The Year", along with her project, "Here Come The Teardrops", being voted "International Album Of The Year". Amber was also nominated for "Pure Country Female Vocalist" in 2006 by the Academy of Western Artists and won the award in 2008.

Her latest solo album, "Another Way To Live" has received extensive reviews and even made the first round of the Grammy Nominations in 2009. He duet album with Justin Trevino "Keeping Up Appearances" teamed both of the respected traditionalists together with fourteen duet songs.

"Amber Digby-Live At Swiss Alp Dance Hall" will be release on both album and DVD in March.

Other entertainers on the Mason Country Opry will include Justin Trevino, Benny Fred Kothmann, Dora Lee Sewell, Tommy Kent, Sammy Geistweidt, Kelsey Behrens and Shane Lively.
