Sand PoseySandy Posey was born in Jasper, Alabama, the youngest of five children.

In this tiny southern town where she played as a child, she dreamed of far away places she might someday go and sing. Sandy’s first public singing experience was at the tender age of five, she sang with her sister at here grandpa Posey’s funeral.

As fate would have it, Sandy moved to Memphis, Tennessee where some of the most famous singers and musicians of all time were just beginning to make their mark on the world, beginning with the king of rock & roll, Elvis Presley.

During her teen years Sandy’s voice had influenced the music industry significantly. She was asked to sing background on recording sessions all over Memphis, including Sam Phillips’ Sun Records.

Sandy’s unique voice was also recognized by RCA and her career as a backup singer soared when she backed Elvis Presley on such hits as "Kentucky Rain”, "In The Ghetto” and "The Wonder of You”, just to name a few.

In addition to the Elvis hits, Sandy recorded backup for Percy Sledge on his timeless hit "When a Man Loves a Woman”. When Sand’s career led her to move to Nashville, she backed many legendary country superstars ranging from Waylon Jennings to George Jones.

Although Sandy had a thriving career in the recording studio backing all these great artists, her big dream was to become a recording artist herself.

As Sandy searched for just the right song, Gary Walker, a Nashville publisher, heard Sandy’s magnetic voice. During this time, Gary had discovered an unknown writer by the name of Martha Sharp. She had just penned what was to become Sandy’s long awaited, first, number one hit. The song was entitled "Born a Woman”.

Sandy Posey was nominated for two Grammys by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, in two different categories, along with Paul McCartney and Barbara Streisand. Sandy is married to Wade Cummins who performs as Elvis Wade.
