Bruce Robison At Grand Ole Opry
Bruce Robison hails from Bandera, Texas, also known as “The Cowboy Capital of the World.” He grew up in a musical family, his brother, Charles Robison, and sister, Robyn Ludwick, are both singer/songwriters. Bruce musical career began as a teenager in garage bands and grew when he dropped out of college and moved to Austin with his brother to play music.
After a few stints with other bands, Bruce decided to remain a solo act and in 1995, he released his self-titled debut album. In 1997, he released the Wrapped independently before signing a contract with Sony Nashville. He continued to release 10 more albums and write several hit songs including the Dixie Chicks “Travelin’ Soldier,” Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s rendition of “Angry All the Time,” and George Strait’s song “Wrapped.”
In 1996, he married fellow singer/songwriter Kelly Willis. The couple decided to perform separately because of a shared desire to make their own names before becoming a duo. After they released a holiday album together in 2003, it was clear that they should forge a path together with their four kinds in tow. So they came together to form the band, The Bruce and Kelly Show, under which they will release the album, Cheater’s Game, in 2013.
