Throughout his career, Charlie Robison has forged his own path within country music as well as the Lone Star music scene and popular music at large. He grew up in Bandera in the Texas Hill country, also known as “The Cowboy Capital of the World,” where his family has ranched for eight generations. Music ran the gamut in the Robison family home from rock ‘n’ roll to singer/songwriters and much more. It came as no surprise that Charlie, his brother, Bruce, and sister, Robyn Ludwyck, all enjoy respected and critically acclaimed music careers as singers, songwriters, and recording and performing artists. Charlie started his musical career by persuading Bruce to drop out of college with him, and the two brothers took off to Austin to join a band called Chaparral. Charlie began writing songs in earnest, and after a stint in the popular Austin roots-rocking combo, Two Hoots and A Holler, as well as a collection of local talents known as The Millionaire Playboys, he struck out on his own as an artist with a debut album in 1995. Several years and recordings later, Charlie’s 2003 live album showcased the dynamic, hard-charging performing style that made him a Lone Star State favorite and a popular national country/rock attraction. His most recent recording, Beautiful Day, is a musical departure for Charlie as his first self-produced album recorded at his brother’s Austin studio. It explores the panoply of emotions following a divorce, written after Charlie’s marriage ended to Emily (of the Dixie Chicks). And just as Beautiful Day closes one emotional chapter and opens another, it’s also an album that showcases Charlie’s strong rock ‘n’ roll leanings as they transcend his country roots to create a sound that is simply great American music.
