Tori Gay

Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival, Tori Gay, Songwriter, SMSWF, Gatlinburg, TNTori Gay has been in the music ministry since 2005. A Mississippi native, she made the move to Tennessee to pursue the “music career” side of her ministry. She is a singer and writer (of songs and otherwise) whose desire is to communicate to others what God can do for them and what He’s done for her. Over the years, Tori has been invited to sing at numerous churches and events, and she was featured at the 2012 Mississippi State Quartet Convention. She also had radio success with “The Church will Prevail”, a release from her “All in His Time” project – a song that made its way to the Christian Music Perspective charts. She is a contributing writer to “My Journey of Faith Devotions”, as well as a member of the Knoxville Songwriters Association and the Inspirational Country Music Association. “A song only gives you about 3 minutes to make an impact on somebody’s life, so when I write, I want to use that time wisely,” she says. Most recently, Tori had the opportunity to co-write with Scott Reeves (Toby Keith’s “Made in America”) and Bill LaBounty (Shenandoah’s “I Want to be Loved Like That”) and share the stage with Jerry Salley (Reba McEntire’s “I’m Gonna Take That Mountain”), Carl Jackson (Garth Brooks’s “Fit for a King”), and Larry Cordle (Ricky Skaggs’s “Highway 40 Blues”).
