From the heartland of America, Bobby G. Rice first burst forth onto the music scene with a 1970 revival of the popular Jimmy Gilmore pop classic “Sugar Shack” and then Bruce Channel’s “Hey Baby”.

Born into a musical family with its own radio show, Bobby began performing publicly at an early age. Later he decided to test his wings as a solo artist in his native Wisconsin.

He succeeded, however, beyond expectations: scoring nationally. As a stylist, he proved especially adept in adding country flavor to spicy standards like “Lover Please”, “Mountain of Love” and “Suspicion”

Still, it was in introducing his own song “You Lay So Easy On My Mind” in late 1972, that he found a lasting niche in country music. “You Lay so Easy On My Mind” went on to be his first number one national chart record and was later recorded by such artists as Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, Roy Orbison, Pat Boone, Andy Williams, David Houston, Jerry Springer and others. Proving he was no “one-hit wonder”, he scored the next spring with another Top 10 tune “You Give Me You”.

He is that rare breed who shows us that, talent will win, by recording his initial hits on independent labels. With his career in high gear, he followed through with more Top 10 singles, among them, “Write Me A Letter” and “Freda Comes Freda Goes”. Country classics he has breathed new life into include, “Pick Me Up On Your Way Down”, “My Special Angel” and “Oh Baby Mine”.
