He's Lost It All
Bobby Cunningham grew up in rural Ohio listening to a variety of music. From the world of rock and roll he loved the music of Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Eagles and Bob Seger, but he found his true love for music on the country side. His influences were Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Conway Twitty and that's where Bobby developed his love of country music and the ability to belt out a country song with the best of them. Bobby's musical career began at an early age singing with his family. His mother and father both sang and played musical instruments, as did other members of the family. At age 8, Bobby started playing guitar and age 11 he got his first guitar as a Christmas gift. He played and sang in school assemblies and started performing with his first band at age 14. Following high school, Bobby did a 13-year stint in the U.S. Army, but always kept his passion for playing and singing. He moved to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where he played and sang with local bands and got the opportunity to sing a duet with country star Ronnie McDowell and to open a show for the popular country band, 'Ricochet.' This past year Bobby saw his lifelong dream become a reality as he recorded his first CD in Nashville with some of Music City's best session musicians. The album titled, 'He's Lost It All' features songs written by noted Nashville hit songwriters Don Cook, Roger Murrah and the late Keith Whitley. The first single release from the album is 'Leave Me A Picture Of You' written by Wesley Dennis and is being played on radio stations across the country and international with great response.
