Bobby Osborne Signs with Moonstruck Management

Nashville, TN (June 28, 2012) Josh Trivett and Peter Keiser with Moonstruck Management are proud to announce they have signed Grand Ole Opry star, BOBBY OSBORNE for exclusive booking and management representation.  “What
an honor it was receiving news that the legendary Bobby Osborne was
interested in working with us at Moonstruck! Bobby has been one of the
great legends over the last several decades in the country and bluegrass
worlds. His tenor singing is one of the most recognizable voices in the
history of the music. We were thrilled to accept this opportunity to
work with a Grand Ole Opry member and a legend
,” said Josh
Trivett.  Moonstruck Management is a modern music management company
that focuses on the country and bluegrass music business, incorporating
artist development, management, growth, and booking into one controlled
business.

 

BOBBY
OSBORNE recorded his first hit in 1949 and received his membership in
The Grand Ole Opry in 1964.  There is no doubt Bobby has been one of the
most influential singers and mandolin players in the history of
Bluegrass and Country music.  He was inducted into the Kentucky Music
Hall of Fame in 2002, inducted into the International Bluegrass Music
Association’s Hall of Fame (Lonesome Pine Fiddlers) in 2009, and has
recorded two State songs – “Rocky Top (Tennessee)” and “Kentucky”
(Kentucky).

 

BOBBY
OSBORNE & THE ROCKY TOP X-PRESS are celebrating their current Rural
Rhythm Records’ album, I’M GOING BACK TO THE MOUNTAIN that includes the
talents of: Bobby Osborne (Lead Vocal, Mandolin); Bobby Osborne, Jr.
(Baritone Vocal, Acoustic Bass); Glen Duncan (Low Tenor Vocal, Fiddle);
Michael Toppins (6-Sring Banjo); Joe Miller (Guitar) and produced by
Bobby Osborne, Glen Duncan, and Bobby Osborne, Jr.

 

“He
was the first person to craft a style not based on Monroe style
mandolin playing. Bobby’s mandolin style reflected his love of the
fiddle, and electric guitar playing of Hank Garland and Grady Martin. So
what we see with Bobby Osborne, is a singer and instrumentalist who
always saw himself as part of the County Music business. There was no
separation between the styles, Bluegrass hadn’t yet become a genre onto
itself, it was all just part of Country Music,” wrote Glen Duncan from
the liner notes of the BOBBY OSBORNE & THE ROCK TOP X-PRESS album MEMORIES: Celebrating Bobby’s 60th Anniversary as a Professional Entertainer on Rural Rhythm Records.

 

BOBBY
OSBORNE & THE ROCK TOP X-PRESS are currently on tour including
performances at:  July 13-14 at the High Mountain Hay Fever Bluegrass
Festival in Westcliff, CO July 13-14; Grand Ole Opry on July 20;
