Country Music Hall of Fame


Songwriter Session: Bruce Robison

Saturday, September 16, 2017 - 11:30am

Austin, Texas-based singer-songwriter Bruce Robison has released a dozen albums (both as a solo artist and with his wife, singer Kelly Willis) containing new honky-tonk favorites such as “My Brother and Me” and “What Would Willie Do.” Robison’s “Angry All the Time” was a country hit for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill; George Strait scored with his “Desperately” and “Wrapped”; and “Travelin’ Soldier” became a Dixie Chicks hit. Robison’s latest release, Bruce Robison & the Back Porch Band, features a mix of original and cover tunes recorded in his all-analog Texas studio. The studio also serves as the set for Robison’s The Next Waltz, a website that showcases music, videos, and interviews with artists and songwriters. 

This program, presented by SunTrust and in partnership with the Americana Music Association, takes place in the Museum's Ford Theater. The program will also be streamed live at
