Bare of a Man

Bare of a Man

Happy 82nd birthday to Bobby Bare. The Country Music Hall of Fame member was born in Ironton, Ohio, on April 7, 1935.

Bobby Bare was once described by his good friend Waylon Jennings as “the best songhound in the world” due to his instincts for finding great tunes. He recorded many of them himself – including his first Top 10, “Detroit City” – and helped Waylon and other stars choose hit material, too. His close association with writers led to Bobby’s own TNN series, Bobby Bare And Friends, which showcased some of country’s finest songwriters.

In 2003 Bobby recorded the uproarious album Old Dogs, a collaboration with Waylon, Jerry Reed, Mel Tillis and writer Shel Silverstein.

Thomas Rhett Will Never Take Touring for Granted

Thomas Rhett is ready to hit the road and Bring The Bar To You in 2022!

Starting in June, Thomas will kick-off his Bring The Bar To You tour with back to back shows in Gilford, New Hampshire with openers Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.

After going through the last two years, Thomas says, “I’ll never take for granted being able to come see y’all and I’m so fired up to play some of these new ones that were made with these nights in mind. I have a feeling things are going to get loud – I’m counting down the days already!”
