I’m Robert Earl Grogan and I love Texas music! I grew up listening to and eventually meeting BW Stevenson, Lyle Lovett, Shake Russell, Robert Earl Keen just to name a few. Living in Austin I get to see some of the best songwriters around play the same stages that I do!
I grew up in Arlington and I have to say seeing and hearing Calico as a teenager at Gilligans was probably the biggest influence on me playing acoustic music…that and hearing Richard Guthrie play Stairway to Heaven when we were in high school! One of my favorite Calico tunes is Come On Down To Texas written by Keith Impelletier. It means a lot to have his blessing of covering that tune on my EP.
