Bobby wrote ninety percent of them. “Honey” was written by Bobby Russell and “Watching Scotty Grow” was written by Mac Davis. He wrote “With Pen In Hand” while he was in his car. It was raining like crazy, so he pulled off to the side of the road, got out his guitar and had an idea for a song.
Bobby started out as a back-up guitarist for Roy Orbison who taught him about being on stage in front of crowds and writing music.
