Bob is the 2011 Texas Music Awards “Singer/Songwriter Of The Year”, an Emmy winning songwriter, Kerrrville and Napa Valley Festival winner with eight commercial CD’s, two of which were Euro top 10 and the most recent, 2010 release “Tall Texas Tales”, was US Americana #28. Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings have recorded his songs. When he died, Elvis had a song of Bob’s on his “to do” list. Having written over 3,000 songs with some of them on TV and in movies, Bob has toured Europe relentlessly the past 10 years doing 40-60 concerts per tour and has been a music biz professional since the late 60’s during his top-40-charting pop career in LA, being the voice on the TV theme “Love American Style” and having played gigs in just about every state in the US. In addition to his 1999 “Gettysburg To Graceland” CD being Americana top 20, one of the results of that record was the opening spot on what was to be Johnny Cash’s final tour.
