Throughout his career, Charlie Robison has forged his own path within the country music world, the Lone Star music scene, and popular music at large. He grew up in the small scenic town of Bandera in the Texas Hill country where his family has ranched the land for eight generations. Music wasn’t just a staple around the Robison household. Before he could even walk, Charlie would spend Saturday nights with his parents at The Cabaret, the local C&W dancehall in downtown Bandera. But the fare playing in the Robison family home ran the gamut from rock’n’roll to singer-songwriters and much more. Robison’s debut album, aptly titled Bandera and released on the tiny Austin Vireo Records label, was a potent opening salvo that included such Robison favorites as the rowdy nightlife celebration “Barlight” and “Red Letter Day.” In 2013, he released both his studio album High Life and Live at Billy Bob’s Texas which perfectly captures his charisma and unique sense of humor all in the most natural of settings: live and uncut.
