It was a shock to hear from Trailboss Troy at KTEX 106 that Charlie Robison had died Sunday, September 10.
John Dickson, producer of the Music Fest at Steamboat said that it breaks our hearts to hear this. He went on to say, “Such an incredible talent that did it his way. We loved him for who he was and for all those beautiful landscapes andcolorful stories he painted in his songs.”
Laughing at “Barlight” or thinking through “My Hometown,” there was always something to keep in a Charlie Robison song. We know his family and friends will have to deal with hurt from losing Charlie.
We also know they’ll be helped by knowing that his work as a songwriter,
performer and musician will live on.
Here’s the 2013 cover of Best In Texas Music magazine that featured Charlie
and the article Laurie Barker James wrote as his Live At Billy Bob’s album was about to be released.
