Bobby Lewis Biography
Review The Artist (10)
This young man we want to introduce to you, nice fans and friends, comes from Hodgenville, Kentucky. He is one of the fastest rising new artists in country music today. His name is Bobby Lewis. Bobby started his career at a very early age. When he was 9, his brother Jack taught him some chords on a borrowed guitar. Bobby's father made a promise that if he could learn well enough he would buy the lad one of his own. Soon his dad was out a new guitar. Bobby played every place he could and soon was entering and winning amateur contest far and wide. Soon he was working on local radio stations and being invited to appear many places. At 13, Booby auditioned for Hi Varieties a WHAS-TV teenage show, in Lousville, Kentucky. Bobby became a regular on this show and then joined The Old Kentucky Barn Dance, which was on WHAS radio, and then the CBS Network's Saturday Night Country Style. He subsequently advanced to a top rated weekly WHAS-TV show, Hayloft Hoedown. He has also toured Canada twice and appeared on the BBC network. Bobby has also worked with the official USO for many years and has entertained our troops in many states across the nation. He has made appearances on a lot of the top country shows and has worked many telethons, with national and international stars. One of Bobby's greatest ambitions was to appear on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. On his first Opry appearance he was so well accepted he stopped the show and received an encore! Bobby said, This Was The Happiest Moment Of My Life! Bobby's record of Perfect Example Of A Fool made a lot of top 10 charts around the country and his next release Six Days Week And Twice On Sunday played even better. Bobby, now living in Nashville, appears on the Grand Ole Opry from time to time and quite often headlines The Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree on WSM. Aside from singing, Bobby spends a lot of time writing songs and has penned about 200. His hobbies are juggling, golfing, water skiing, woodworking, and cutting his own hair. It is with great pride that we write this brief introduction and it was an honor that Bobby Lewis ask us to do so, for he is a very deserving person. As most country music lovers know, we live and breath our music. In this business, so often it is asked what it takes to become a star. It takes good looks, personality, some soul and a whole lot of heart and determination, and it is our sincerely honest opinion that Bobby Lewis has all of this and more. So please give a listen to this young man, and we know you will feel the same as we do. So when Bobby Lewis comes to your part of the country by way of records or in person, you're in for a real treat from one of the most sincere, down-to-earth country music artists that has come along in some time.

Heart of Texas Concert | Reviewer: Ken and Johnnie Holman | 8/18/12
Bobby, We saw your show last night 8/17/2012. We thought you did a wonderful job on your songs, especially your new one, Everythings Good In Texas, very catchy tune. I know it will do very well on the charts, (and make a lot of money). Was that really Hank Williams hat? Your friends and neighbors, Ken and Johnnie Holman

Bobby Lewis Song "Sandra Kay" | Reviewer: Esther Wheatley | 7/25/11
I would listen to the song "Sandra Kay" back in 1964 and 1965. Because of that song when my daughter was born in July, 1965 I named her Sandra Kaye. I have been wanting a copy of the song for years now and can't find it.
Where can I find a copy. I told my daughter I named her after that song and I want her to hear it. Thanks, Esther
Lincoln Jamboree Days | Reviewer: Johnny (Jackie) Grubbs | 4/23/11
I first saw you at the Lincoln Jamboree. My dad, Johnny Grubbs, played there every Saturday night for several years. I remember your brother Jack, CORNSILK, WHAT A HOOT!! My sister Donna and I would sit on the front row every time we went. We always hoped for a ajm session after the show so we could dance on the stage! We actually danced in the show in 1957 in the theater on the old town square. Just wanted to drop you a line. Hope all is well.
Great performance too long ago | Reviewer: Wally Holley | 8/13/10
