a year! 2019 has been one for the books – coming off of a big win at
the same AQHA World Championship Show that premiered my new video on the

About Paul Bogart
Though his songs are fresh and he himself is young, Paul Bogart is
an old soul with a knack for capturing time-honored traditions and
summing up classic sentiments in catchy, commercially-viable songs.
Exuding sincerity and a rare, down-to-earth charm, he is, simply put,
the epitome of traditional country music. After nearly a decade of
writing, playing and touring, Bogart has begun pulling in big numbers in
every arena, literally. Whether it’s the main stage at the AQHA World
Championships with thousands in attendance or the social media scene
with over 3.5 million fans reached through all social video platforms,
led by “The Cowboy Way” and “Cowboy Ride” with over 2.6 million views,
Bogart’s songs have connected with America’s Heartland in a real,
tangible way that modern country has perhaps missed. He released the
album Leather in 2017 which garnered critical praise for
“grounding itself in the foundations of country music fandom’s tenets of
faith and family,” (CriticalBlast.com)
and Taste of Country called his 2019 single “When the Cowboys Are Gone”
“nothing but authentic.” Often compared to Chris LeDoux, the
modern-cowboy has written songs for Porter Wagoner, Wade Hayes, Roger
Creager, Kevin Fowler and, most recently, one of only two outside cuts
on the great songwriter Red Steagall’s new record Hats Off To The Cowboy. For more information on Paul Bogart visit PaulBogart.com.
