About Bobby Bobby Boyd makes his home in Spicewood, Texas. He began his musical career at the age of twelve, singing in Tennessee with his brothers in a band called the Boyd Brothers. In the late 60's to the early 70's, Bobby was performing five hours a night, six nights a week in Chattanooga at a club called The Castaways. The band at this time consisted of a five piece horn section and a rockin' rhythm section. They performed on shows with Little Richard, The Coasters, The Platters and various other Vegas performers. He then began writing as a staff writer for Jimmy Bowen at Elektra Asylum Publishing in 1980. While in Nashville, Bobby wrote songs recorded by Garth Brooks, Conway Twitty, George Jones, Earl Thomas Conley , Billy Dean , Vern Gosdin and various others in the country field. In the Pop & Blues categories, he has collaborated on songs recorded by artists like Dobie Gray and Larry McCray . Most recent release of Bobby Boyd's songs was recorded by Patty Loveless - Mountain Soul CD/ #2 Richest Fool Alive written in 1980 in Nashville, TN. One night in Nashville he wrote one of the most successful songs Garth Brooks has ever recorded. “Two Of A Kind Workin' On A Full House” (an ode to Bobby's parents) has been released on four of Brooks' top selling CD's (No Fences, The Hits, The Box Set, and The Live Album) selling in excess of eighty million copies. Bobby's song was also released on the “Garth Brooks Live From Central Park” video, adding to its success. The last few years has seen Bobby getting back to his R&B roots, writing some of his most memorable material to date with such notable tunesmiths as Kostas and Lonnie Mack . A move to the Austin, Texas area from Nashville a few years ago has also been conducive to his writing and performing. He has been collaborating with such Austin legends as Stephen Bruton (Bonnie Raitt, Kris Kristoferson) and the “Godfather Of Austin Blues”, W.C. Clark . Bobby's strong stage presence and powerhouse band has landed him an opening spot on several of Willie Nelson and Family's tour dates, including a standing slot on Willie's legendary Fourth of July Picnic, as well as dates with Pat Green, Billy Joe Shaver , Toby Keith , Cory Morrow, Kevin Fowler, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Dub Miller, Rogr Creager and many others. Joe Forlini has played guitar with the best and his tasteful mastery of the instrument shows why. His onstage and recording credits include Delbert McClinton, Bonnie Bramlett, Rusty Weir, Jerry Jeff Walker, and many more. Bass player Donnie Price has run the gauntlet of musical styles, ranging from blues, country, Tex-Mex, swing, and rock & roll. He has been seen consorting on the stage or in the studio with the likes of Willie Nelson, Billy Joe
