Bobby Hodge (1932-2011) was a former Grand Ole Opry and Nashville Recording Artist. He recorded several records under various labels mostly in Nashville from around 1958 - 1972 scoring regional hits as well as some reaching national charts. This CD is a compilation of most all his work during those years and were taken from original recordings. His music ranges from "Honky Tonk" to "Classic Country" to "Rockabilly". As a matter of fact, one track on this CD, "Gonna Take My Guitar" originally recorded on Rebel Records is one of the most sought after records among Rockabilly collectors. 
His recordings feature some of the best studio musicians available at that time including Roy Acuff's Smoky Mountain Boys with Shot Jackson on steel guitar, 'Bashful Brother Oswald' on dobro, Howdy Forrester on fiddle and Melba Montgomery on guitar. The Smoky Mountain Boys also usually backed Bobby up when he appeared on the Grand Ole Opry in the early 60s. Other session musicians include Johnny Gimble (fiddle), Weldon Myrick (steel guitar), Charlie McCoy (harmonica), DJ Fontana (drums), Bobby G Rice (steel guitar), Jimmy Colvard (guitar) to name a few.
Bobby recorded on various labels including Rebel Records, Stop Records, Nashville (Starday), Cuca Records, Golden Ring, Volunteer, Prize Records, Stature and Wizard Records.
Bobby was very popular as he was often on radio and television especially around his stomping grounds in Madison Wisconsin. 
Bobby decided to record his last record and move to Tampa Florida in 1972. "I Wish I Could Fall In Love Today" & "You Took Her Off My Hands" garnered him "Single of the Year" from the Florida Country Music Association.
Although retired from recording Bobby continued to entertain at various shows around Tampa including his own night club. He even headed up his own radio show on a 50,000 watt station out of Largo Fl (WRFA).
Bobby spent the rest of his days doing his other passion, Thoroughbred Horse Racing where he and his wife Mary raced at tracks all over the country for several years.
Bobby has since passed on but his music will live on forever!
