Personalities | Bobby Bare | Nashville & Beyond | Country

(Vocals, b. 1935)

This gifted Ironton, Ohio-born singer possesses a laconic, empathic baritone voice that has made him one of country’s most adventurous and imaginative song interpreters. During the 1960s, Bare found pop chart success and popularity with folk audiences with wistful, pop-flavoured crossover ballads like ‘Detroit City’ (1963) and ‘Streets Of Baltimore’ (1966). He was also a minor but important figure in the country outlaw movement of the 1970s.
