Dottie Rambo, known throughout the industry as the Queen of Gospel Music, is a world-renowned singer, songwriter, and musician. Throughout her 60+ year career, Rambo wrote more than 2,500 songs. Her legendary songs have been recorded by music icons such as Elvis Presley, Barbara Mandrell, Carol Channing, Whitney Houston, and Dolly Parton.
At age 12, she had taught herself how to play guitar and was traveling to perform at churches, revivals, and radio stations. Jimmie Davis, then Louisiana Governor and noted songwriter, gave Rambo her first real break in the 1960s by providing her first professional writing contract with his publishing company. From that point her career skyrocketed as a songwriter, soloist, and leader of her family trio The Singing Rambos, later known as simply The Rambos, and brought her opportunities to work with industry greats such as Barbara Mandrell and Porter Wagoner. Some of her more noted works include "I Go To the Rock," "He Looked Beyond My Fault," and "I Will Glory In the Cross."
Her accolades include Grammy and Dove awards, the ASCAP Lifetime Achievement Award and being inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. She and The Rambos are also members of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.
Rambo passed away in 2008. Her legacy continues through her timeless songs and messages of hope and salvation.
Inducted to the Music City Walk of Fame on November 6, 2011.
