Now for those of you who aren’t familiar with Bobby Lewis I’ll tell you some things
about him. He’s from Hodgenville Ky and was born in 1942. a lot of today’s legends were
born in the 1930’s and he is one of my favorites to come from the 40’s.
I met him recently at the Al Meinah Temple this past spring for the ROPE show.
He played a really nice set for us that day and was exceptionally kind to us.
Between 1963 and the middle 80’s he recorded ten or so albums for United Artists.
And to my studies his best single was a number 6 hit “How Long Has It Been”.
Not to be confused with the Gospel song by Jim Reeves.
He has been called “The Boy With The Lute” because he plays a six string lute.
He is one of the great Opry performers we still have left with us and
often hosts the Midnight Jamboree afterwards.
His very first performance on the Opry earned him an encore.
Honestly I think he deserves this honor and on THIS website he deserves
A big old WE LOVE YOU!
