Whatever Happened To Classic Country Star Bob Luman?

Ready to spin one of Country Music’s biggest 45′s?  Let’s put it on the turntable, set the needle down gently and enjoy the great Bob Luman‘s 1972 smash ‘Lonely Women make Good Lovers’.



Bob Luman came out of the Lone Star state of Texas.  A good enough athlete to have a tryout with Major League Baseball’s Pittsburgh Pirates, Bob decided to devote his energies full time to music when he couldn’t make the sports cut.

And all us Country Music fans are glad he did!

Bob began making his professional mark in the music business through the 1950′s. While he was in the Army in the early 1960′s, his record company released what would be his biggest crossover hit, a song that was a Top 10 hit on both the pop and country music charts, ‘Let’s Think About Livin’.



Bob was a constant on the Country Music chart into the 1970′s, including a huge 1973 country hit with the Gladys Knight and the Pips pop music smash ‘Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye)’.



Bob is a member of both the Rockabilly Hall of Fame and the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame.

So whatever happened to Bob Luman?

Bob passed away in Nashville from pneumonia in 1978 at the much too young age of 41.
