10 MP3 Songs
COUNTRY: Traditional Country, COUNTRY: Western Swing
Bob Edgar was born in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, raised in Gering and earned the sovereign right to wear the cowboy hat and boots by working on ranches and cattle drives in his younger years. He has always been a cowboy at heart with country music running through his veins. Bob achieved national recognition as a top DJ in the Intermountain West and Southwest prior to entering the professional entertainment industry as a solo artist. He served as emcee to many Grand Ole Opry roadshows where he developed personal friendships with many nationally acclaimed performers. With the advent of his first single Montana Woman (released in 1969), and bolstered by that record''s sustained radio airplay (20 weeks on the East Coast charts), Bob went on to release more than 30 additional singles and four albums. Much of his music has received national and regional airplay - Jodie, Whistle Jones, Person to Person, Don''t Forget the Tip, and many more.
Bob owns and produced the television pilot, Cowhide, and the radio series Sweetwater Jubilee, has produced numerous live shows and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities and/or individuals during his career. He has performed in the United States, Canada, the Northwest Territories, Alaska and Japan as well as in television shows and movies. His career spans years of getting to know and love his audience - and giving his audience the music they love to hear.
In this newest album, Bob brings together many of his own originals as well as some of his favorite ''cowboy'' songs. In Bob''s own words, "I love the music of Marty Robbins although I''ve never tried to imitate him. I also like Jim Reeves." His ability to deliver the country ballad or cowboy song with the same integrity and talent as his own entertainer favorites is evident. He sings clearly, with honesty and character borne of tough times and valuable lessons. The arrangements in this album (masterminded by Bob and expertly crafted by Manny and Manuel Saiz) wrap themselves around Bob''s voice with comfortable clarity with the resulting collection of songs being able to hold the listener''s attention from the first selection to the last...and then again...and again. The highest compliment has been paid to this album ... "It is darn good music and so easy to listen to!" And, Bob''s final comment - "I hope you like it."
