I’m excited to share the news of a new album due early summer 2017. The lion’s share of the album was recorded at Alex the Great studio in Nashville, with co-producer/engineer Brad Jones at the helm. I had a fantastic time working with some of Nashville’s “A Team” musician’s including multi-instrumentst Fats Kaplin, keyboardists Phil Madeira & John Deaderick, drummer Jerry Roe, guitarist Richard Bennett, and bassist Brad Jones. A few of the overdubs were done at the home studio and include pedal steel guitar player Pete Adams, and backing vocalists Abe Guthrie, Bruce Mandel, and Lara Tupper. Can’t wait for you all to hear the magic!
Bobby’s song “My Sweet” aired on the ABC Television series Nashville episode 1×13 There’ll Be No Teardrops Tonight. Hear the song or watch the scene here.
