Bart Crow Live at Wild West [VIDEO]
Born and raised along the outreaches of Dallas in Maypearl, Texas, Bart Crow grew up like millions of us…passionately in love with music. And also like million of us Crow bounced around his adolescent world like a racket ball, quick and rough and in many different directions. After graduating high school, his “inner parent” stepped up, sent his “inner child” to a time-out, and enlisted him in the US Army for a three-year active duty tour. In a situation very similar to the late/great Johnny Cash, Crow found himself with a lot of down time during his peace time military stay, which led him to hours of self taught guitar lessons and pages of a newly written music journal. It’s tough to say whether it was the high a songwriter gets when the music starts to come, or “being in a 63 ton armored vehicle that only God could stop” that gave him the courage it would take to launch his music career. But in 2005 he did exactly that with his debut record release FINALLY, which made a profound impression on the industry, generating a firm expectation that the BART CROW BAND is destined to be one of the greats in Texas music. Bart Crow will play Saturday Night at Wild West along with Jake Kellen. It’s another Wild West Weekend, and we will see you there.
