BIO: Georgia-raised, Nashville-based singer-songwriter Bobby Cool’s brand of music is infused with country, bluegrass, and roots. His debut album, Light In The Dark, which was nominated by the IMAs for Country Album of the Year, is a compilation of well-crafted stories, examining life and the most fundamental matters of the heart.
Produced by Mike Proctor (worked with Little Big Town, Gary Allen, Lionel Richie) and self-released on his own label, Cool Records, the album is comprised of 14 songs, 13 of which he wrote/co-wrote.
While attending the University of Georgia, Cool’s education in music began, not in a classroom, but in the historic downtown Athens scene. One venue in particular was a frequent spot for he and his friends. “I probably wouldn’t be playing music if it weren’t for the Georgia Theatre,” he says. “We were there a few times a month and my love for performing definitely came out of those shows.”
In addition to writing, recording, and performing, Bobby is involved with World Vision to impact communities locally and abroad. “One goal for the upcoming tour is to build a well, sponsored by World Vision,” he says. “50% of all downloads on the website go towards building a sustainable clean water source for an entire community. I’m hoping that we can make it happen and that it is the start of something that we continue to do with each project and each tour.” For tour dates and more, visit bobbycoolmusic.com.
