Bart Crow – Shay’s Spotlight Artist of the Week
Bart Crow has a new single out on radio called ‘If I Go, I’m Goin'” featuring Macy Maloy. You may love Bart’s music but not know a lot about him or how he got his start in music. He began that journey not far from here, in Stephenville, where he went to Tarleton State.
He began keeping a journal of thoughts, ideas and life in general. He then reworked some of those life experiences into song form. With encouragement from friends he decided to play a small club in Stephenville and that was it; he was hooked.
Bart came by his talent and love of music honestly; his dad played in a cover band and he was always surrounded by music. Bart admits growing up playing guitar but never took it seriously. Like most musicians, Bart, finally decided to go ‘all in’ moving he and his wife to Austin. He worked day jobs during the week and played music on the weekends.
Time and perseverance finally paid off. Bart eventually got a booking agent, producers, made a record and hit the road with a vengeance. Five albums later Bart is a mainstay on the Texas Music Charts and travels extensively around Texas making people happy with his music.
Don’t forget you can catch Bart Crow right here in Abilene at the Lucky Mule Saloon for our Taste of Country Concert Series June 27th.
