Goldsboro's career has been a remarkable evolution. This multi-talented
performer started out in the early sixties as a guitarist with the
legendary Roy Orbison. During his three years with Orbison he traveled
all over the world and even toured with the Beatles. Bobby was also the
opening act for the Rolling Stones on their first U.S. tour!
In 1964, he went out on his own by recording the first of a string of hit records, "See the Funny Little Clown". Then, in 1968 he recorded the classic "Honey," which became the largest selling record in the world. His recordings of "Watchin' Scotty Grow," "Little Green Apples" and "With Pen In Hand" have also become classics.
The seventies brought his own nationally syndicated television show which ran for three successful seasons. Bobby then formed House of Gold Music which became on of the most successful music publishing companies in Nashville, publishing such songs as "Wind Beneath My "Wings" and "Behind Closed Doors."
Bobby Goldsboro, the songwriter, has received twenty-seven B.M.I. awards and his compositions have been recorded by such diverse artists as Aretha Franklin, John Denver, Paul Anka, Dolly Parton, Billy Vera, Dr. John, and Bette Midler. His compositions, "With Pen In Hand," and "Autumn of My Life," are members of B.M.I.'s exclusive "Million-airs Club," which contains only those songs which have been played on the air over one million times!
In the mid-eighties Bobby cut back on his live performing to devote more time to his first love - writing and producing children's stories. His first effort, "Easter Egg Mornin'," premiered as an animated Easter special in 1991 on the Disney Channel and was bought for world wide distribution.
The 1993 television season saw the hit CBS comedy "Evening Shade" premiere with a new theme song, written and performed by Bobby. The six-time Grammy nominee was also the new musical director of the show, composing new music for the series each week.
In 1996, he launched the children's television series "The Swamp Critters of Lost Lagoon". Designed for children 2 to 6, this live-action children's series featured characters brought to life by actors and Goldsboro's voices and music. He wrote the scripts, the music, played all the instruments, and even did all the character voices for the show. The show features animal characters with computer controlled mouth movements and that incredible Goldsboro music in what could well be the most unique children's show on television*
