An American country music singer and songwriter, Bobby Bare first surfaced on the music scene in the 1950s with rock-and-roll
songs that didn't cultivate much chart success. Then right before Bare was drafted into the Army, he penned a song titled
"The All American Boy." He then introduced a demo of the song to his friend Bill Parsons. Fraternity Records chose to use
Bare's original demo. The record climbed to No. 2 on the Billboard Top 100. But unfortunately for Bare, the song was incorrectly
credited to Bill Parsons. But his luck turned when Chet Atkins, RCA boss and guitarist, signed Bare on to the RCA label. His
first release under the RCA label "Shame On Me" sold almost a million copies. Bare became a household name overnight. Throughout
the 60s and 70s, he continued to churn out successful albums.
Bobby Bare's life story mirrors his music. His mother passed away when he was five years old. His family was forced to
split up because his father couldn't afford to feed his children. By the time he was 15, Bare was laboring on a farm. Later
on, he worked in factories and sold ice cream. He built his first guitar himself and began playing music with a local band
in Springfield, Ohio.
