Bobby Mountain was born in the foothills of north Georgia. At an early age, he was exposed to a rich musical heritage. As a youngster, he acquired his love for music while singing in his church and by high school age, he had the foundation to sing in his school chorus and play the drums in marching band. During his teen years, Bobby was able to start a professional “gig” band and earn a musical scholarship to college after earning his high school diploma and working a part time job at the same time. It was during his college years that the lure of the “business” grew stronger and stronger for Bobby. He and his group enjoyed moderate success and found themselves opening for such Country music legends as “Ma” Maybelle Carter, Ernest Tubb, Stonewall Jackson, Faron Young, Jim Ed Brown, Gary Morris, Ricky Scaggs, Ronnie McDowell, Lester Flat, The Gatlins, and Randy Travis, among others. For ten years, Bobby performed with the Georgia Mountain Fair, a ten thousand seat venue. During his tenure with the Fair, Bobby opened shows for every “hot” artist that appeared at the venue.
