Bobby Rush is a blues great. He has garnered recognition from music lovers from far and wide for his own deep-rooted appreciation of music, and much more. Rush was nominated for the Blues Music Award in the category of Soul Blues Male Artist of the Year 13 times in 14 consecutive years.
In a career spanning 60 years, Rush has composed and performed music that has brought to life the barebones soul that comprises funk and rhythm and blues. As a musician and entertainer, and member of the Bobby Rush and Blues Band, he has stood out among industry luminaries, while remaining inconspicuous in his splendor. He earned acclaim for his 1971 record “Chicken Heads” which was the Record of the Year—the song beat out one of James Brown’s well-known dance gems. He has received a number of awards for his artistry, and he continues to strive for excellence in his every endeavor.
His current album "DOWN IN LOUISIANNA" is in contention for 4 Grammy awards.
