Blacksmithing was close to becoming a lost art. But in recent years, it's made a resurgence. There's even a tv series and a video game featuring the art of iron and steel. Tammi Arender discovered a blacksmith in fairview who took up the task long before it was 'cool' to do so.
Born and raised on a farm in Tallulah, Louisiana, Tammi Arender first moved to Nasvhille in 1990, working for WSMV, WKRN and covering the Grand Ole Opry for TNN. She also freelanced for for Entertainment Tonight, Lifeway Christian, and Tennessee Wildside.

Tammi has moved back to Baton Rouge but still finds time to continue working with Tennessee Crossroads.
