Bobby Bare (born Robert Joseph Bare on April 7, 1935 in Ironton, Ohio) is an American country music singer and songwriter. In the fifties after many failed attempts to sell his songs, he finally was signed up with Capitol records and recorded a few Rock and Roll songs without much chart success. Just before he was drafted into the army, he wrote a song called “The All American Boy” and did a demo for his friend, Bill Parson, to learn and record it. Instead of using the version Bill Parson did later, the record company, Fraternity Records, decided to use the original demo done by Bobby Bare. The record reached NO.2 in Billboard Top 100 but it was wrongly credited to Bill Parson. His real big break came when RCA boss and guitarist Chet Atkins signed him to RCA label. The first song he released on this label, “Shame On Me”, sold nearly a million copies and pushed Bobby Bare to fame overnight. His second RCA release, “Detroit City” won him a Grammy for the best song of the year. Then a surge of hits followed including “500 Miles Away From Home”, “Four Strong Winds” and others. He has also recorded two very successful albums with Skeeter Davies and has also dueted with Lacy J Dalton. He moved to Mercury label in 1970 and had two big hits from early Kris Kristofferson compositions, "Come Sundown" and "Please Don't Tell Me How The Story Ends" before returning to RCA label where he produced his own records. Later Bare moved to CBS label and in 1979, he helped establish Rosanne Cash's career by singing with her on "No Memories Hangin' Round". Bare's singles for Columbia Records included "The Jogger", "Tequila Sheila", "Gotta Get Rid Of This Band", "When Hippies Get Older" and "Numbers”. He later recorded for EMI with little success. Bobby Bare is a versatile singer and in the 70s started to release novelty songs recorded live with selected audience. One of such songs, “Marie Laveau” about a witch, reached number one position in the country chart. This song was written by his friend, a very talented song writer, poet, author and cartoonist Shel Silvesten. He also penned many other songs for Bobby Bare including a hit called “Daddy What If” which he recorded with his five year old son, Bobby Bare Jr, who later became a star on his own. Bobby Bare later recorded a very successful album with his family and penned mainly by Shel called “Singing in The Kitchen". It was nominated for best group category in Grammy Awards but was declined by Bobby himself. He later took chances recording strange, controversial material as "Dropkick Me Jesus (Through The Goalposts Of Life)" and the expletive-driven "Redneck Hippie Romance" with much success. Bobby Bare is also the first to come up with a concept album called “Bird Named Yesterday” which was very successful. His most successful concept album is “Lullaby Legends and Lies”. Bobby Bare also is the first to be given full control of his work and thus the very first Outlaw. Bobby Bare was also given an opportunity to star in the movies. He did a Western with Troy Donhue called ‘A Distant Trumpet” and a few TV episodes called “No Time For a Sergeant”. He turned his back on Hollywood to pursue his career in Country Music. In addition to the above Bobby bare is credited for introducing Waylon Jennings to RCA. He is also one of the first to record from many well known song writers such as Jack Clement, Harlan Howard, Billy Joe Shaver, Mickey Newsberry, Tom T Hall, Kris Kristoferson, and many others. He later has a TV series called “Bobby Bare & Friends, A Song Writer Showcase”. Recently, he has recorded a new album after over 20 years called "The Moon Was Blue" produced by his son. His son, Bobby Bare, Jr., is also a musician.
