Whatever Happened To Bobby Goldsboro

If you go back to 1968 in music, well, the Rock and Roll fans will recall names like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Doors and, of the Beatles.

If you were a Country Music fan, you were listening to people like Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Roy Clark and, hey, this Charley Pride guy is really good!

But it didn’t matter what kind of music you liked, you couldn’t miss one song in particular. #1 Pop. #1 Rock. #1 Country. #1 Adult Contemporary. #1 everywhere!

A young man came out of Florida and dominated the music scene in 1968 with a song about a young wife who died. Everyone was singing along to ‘Honey’. While Bobby Goldsboro was a very successful songwriter in his own right, ‘Honey’ was penned by songwriter Bobby Russell and recorded in one take.

Bobby had other hits, ones he sang and ones he wrote for other artists (perhaps most notably ‘With Pen In Hand’) and hosted a very successful television variety show from 1973-75.

So what’s Bobby Goldsboro doing now? Well, at age 73, in addition to his continuing musical activities, Bobby sells his paintings at his website.

And by the way, you don’t have to miss ‘Honey’. We play it here at Classic Country 1000 KXRB and KXRB.com!
