Early Years

Bobby Ross has been a fighting man all his life. Born in Sacramento, California, his father had him hunting and fishing before he could practically crawl. Every generation of boys in the branches of his family tree bore the burden of battle for America's conflicts. His grandfather told him stories about his direct descendants, the Lamb Boys, who were the first two to fall at the Battle of Concord during the Revolution when that infamous shot was fired, heard around the world. His father was a Navy pilot in the Pacific in WWII, and one of his uncles was a SeaBee. Another uncle fought in General Patton's Army across all of Europe, including the Battle of the Bulge, meeting up with Russia's Red Army in Berlin.
Bobby was raised to bear arms. This indirectly led to his long time friendship with Eddie Bayers, and his family. Eddie is world known as one of the premier studio musicians and drummers in the world. Eddie's father was a famous "ace" pilot in the Pacific Theater of World War II, and Mr. Bayers and Bobby's father flew together. Eddie befriended Bobby when he first came to Nashville, and helped him inspire many of Music City's greatest talents to record his unique music, dedicated to America's fighting men and women. Bobby's and Eddie's fathers made both their sons grow up hard. Bobby's father had him cooking in his cowboy honkytonk, The Rough & Ready Room, at Lake Tahoe, California, starting when he was eight years old. He had to stand on an egg crate to get his hands into the sink to wash the dirty dishes. He ran away from that restaurant shortly after he graduated from high school and joined the Army. He had to jump over Joan Baez sitting cross legged on the sidewalk singing "Kum By YA" on Clay Street in Oakland, California, protesting' the 'Nam War when he was inducted at age 18. Then the Army drove him in an old OD bus to Ft. Ord, whereby a buck sergeant jumped in and slung him out by the collar of his Madras shirt and stuck him in KP. He slaved there for two weeks. He didn't even warrant a uniform. He looked like a grease tramp by the time he was issued his first set of fatigues. He was so proud to be a lowly private. And, he found out his father and his honkytonk weren't so bad after all. He learned a valuable lesson: You can't run away from yourself.
