She graduated from MTSU with a Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in Music Business. Her 15-year long career in music publishing began at Hamstein Music and continued on when the company was sold to Mosaic Media Group. Shortly after leaving Mosaic, she worked at Universal Music Publishing. In 2005, she started working for Big Loud Shirt owned by NSAI Hall of Fame songwriter, Craig Wiseman (“Live Like You Were Dying” by Tim McGraw, “Summertime” by Kenny Chesney & “Boys Round Here” by Blake Shelton), where she remained for 10 years as Creative Manager. During those 10 years, she worked closely with Wiseman and songwriters, Rodney Clawson (“Drunk On You” by Luke Bryan and “American Kids” by Kenny Chesney) Chris Tompkins (“Before He Cheats” & “Blown Away” by Carrie Underwood) and Sarah Buxton (“Sun Daze” by Florida Georgia Line and “Fix” by Chris Lane). In 2011, Wiseman formed a partnership with Big Loud Mountain, signing Florida Georgia Line, where Amy was an integral part of the day-to-day of the company and publishing of songs like “Cruise,” “Get Your Shine On” and “Dirt.” During her time in publishing, Amy started photographing friends and family and eventually formed her own company, Amy Allmand photography, LLC.
