Bobby Cool was born, Robert Talton Cool, in Atlanta, Georgia on March 26, 1986. He grew up listening to artists like James Taylor, Elton John, and Billy Joel, all of whom have greatly influenced his music. For most of his childhood, Bobby listened to the rock, folk, and pop that his parents would play around the house, and it wasn't until high school that he first started listening to country music. "A friend of mine grew up listening to country, but we would make fun of him, and talk about how all he listening to was that his truck broke down, his baby left me, and his dog got runned over," Cool laughs. "But then, he played us some stuff, and I was like okay, maybe it's not too bad. Then I found that I couldn't get those songs out of my head. And then I just got hooked. It all happened very fast," Cool jokes. Cool is a country traditionalist through and through, but has the ability to incorporate various musical genres into his music and still keep it country. "I heard someone say once, that country was all in singer," Cool explains. "I feel like the music that is within me is county music and that no matter how the music is stretched, one way or the other, it will still be country."
Cool lives in Nashville, Tennessee and has recently finished recording three songs that will be pitched to garner interests from artists and labels. When asked about how Nashville has been so far, Cool said that, "I've been very fortunate to have met and worked with the people that I have in such a short period of time. I've been here a little over a year now, and have a seven song demo of songs that I am very proud of, have had some of the best musicians in the world play on it...make me sound a lot better than I am," he says smiling, "and then to have the fan response that i've had thus far...it's just been incredible."
Along with garnering interest from labels and artists, Cool has won a number of songwriting competitions and has also won a battle of the bands in Smyrna, Tennessee. Success, which has further fueled him to continue to pursue a career in music. "I have had nothing but encouragement since moving to Nashville," Cool says, "I realize that it probably won't always be that way, but for now it has been great to have the love and support from the people here in Nashville, and especially the fan base that we're growing. The fans have been awesome!"
Bobby Cool (real name) was born in Atlanta, GA and grew up in Alpharetta, GA. He is a singer/songwriter whose music is a marriage of traditional country, folk, Americana and blues. He is a lively performer who is easygoing and appears to be in his element when in the spotlight.
Cool went to school at the University of Georgia, where he first began playing music. “I started playing guitar a couple of months before I went off to college, almost as just something to do. I played sports in high school and wasn’t good enough to keep playing so I figured I would pick up something else to occupy my time.”
It wasn’t long, however, before Cool was playing shows. “My first experience playing live was at a hoe down where I played like two songs, and it was probably the most fun I’d ever had. It was awesome,” he says with a grin.
After graduating from UGA, he moved to Nashville, started writing songs, and began to wait for the big break. “Man, I moved to Nashville to be a big super star, I’m not gonna lie. I wouldn’t have said it like that at the time, but that’s what I really wanted. It's been a learning process, which has been great. Not easy...but it's been good for me.”
Currently, he is working on material and getting ready to record an album, set to be released in the fall. “We’ve got a group of about fifteen songs that we’re going to pull from, so in between playing shows, writing, and working, I’m going to try and make an album,” he laughs. “I’ll let you know how it goes.”
