Tammy Graham is the only album released by American country music artist Tammy Graham. It was released on April 29, 1997 via Career Records, a division of Arista Nashville. The album produced the singles "Tell Me Again", "A Dozen Red Roses" and "Cool Water".

Critical reception[edit]

The album was met with mixed reviews. Jeffrey B. Remz of Country Standard Time compared her vocals to those of Wynonna Judd and Trisha Yearwood, but said that besides "Cool Water," the album was "middle of the road."[1] New Country magazine gave it one-and-a-half stars out of five, with Brian Mansfield criticizing Graham for singing "straight over the top" on every song.[2]
