Big Bob Young Makes
International Debut With Good Old, Toe-Tappin' Uptempo Single, "Green
Nashville, TN (August 27,
2008) - Big Bob Young makes his international country radio
debut via the September HotDisc, with a good old, toe-tappin' uptempo
number called "Green County Stomp." Produced by
Jeff "Stick" Davis, Michael Webb and Carlton Moody, the single
is awash with bright, crisp instrumentation and energy-charged vocals.
Set "way down south in Mississippi," Bob was inspired to write
the song following a performance at a rural Veterans' of Foreign Wars
hall. "A friend's father was there," Young recalls.
"And he had a real unique style of clogging that he called
"Stompin'" it is: heavy on the percussion and filled with
enough dips and whirls to make your head spin. "Green County
Stomp" will have you slappin' your thigh and singin' along by
the second verse.
Way down south in Mississippi,
oh some where near the swamp
There's a little town called Leakesville,
and the people there love to stomp
Oh and you can play for hours pickin' the wildwood flower
The people hollerin' please don't stop,
'cause the party's just begun and boys we're havin' fun
doin' the green county stomp (Young)
A native of Missouri, Big Bob has been playing guitar,
writing songs and singing since his teens, but the demands of family (and
life) kept his music on the back burner for many years. A career
military man and Bronze Star recipient, Big Bob played mostly on weekends
until the death of his wife two years ago. "Losing my lovely
wife made me realize that if I was ever going to do something with my
music, it was time to get off my duff and get busy," Big Bob
says. "Life is too short." Young wasted no time; he
called up his old friend Stick Davis, and set the wheels in motion for
this single, and an upcoming CD.
