Bruce Robison grew up in Bandera, Texas where he, his brother Charlie, and their sister Robin Ludwick, fell in love with Willie, Waylon, Hank and other country luminaries. All three began writing their own tunes. Eventually, Bruce’s songs turned into hits for George Strait (“Desperately”), Tim McGraw (“Angry All the Time”) and the Dixie Chicks (“Travelin’ Soldier”). He also has recorded on his own and collaborated with others as a songwriter, singer, guitarist, harmonica player and producer. After doing his last two albums with his wife Kelly Willis, they’re back to creating separately. His infectious love for music is evident in every note of his new album, Bruce Robison & the Back Porch Band, as well as his new project, The Next Waltz, a blossoming community of artists, fans and friends gathering both virtually and at his recording studio just outside of Austin. The Next Waltz sessions are documented on video, along with interviews in which Robison, speaking artist-to-artist, often draws out stories journalists don’t. In 2018, The Next Waltz filmed some very special interviews and performances in Steamboat for the Live! At MusicFest feature. In both cases, the point is to celebrate country music’s rich traditions while giving creativity free rein to go where it might, as long as it’s somewhere worth traveling. It’s also about celebrating Robison’s “love of the craft of song.”
