Bart Crow is a true Texan, born and raised in the small town of Maypearl, just south of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Crow is married, refers to himself as a "boy dad" being the father of four boys, and refers to his family as the "Wild Flock" because of the Crow  name. His other family is known as the Bart Crow Band.

First off, I want to thank singer-songwriter Bart Crow for his service to our country. Crow served in the United States Army. While in the Army, he also attended Tarleton State University and began writing songs. In a few of these songs, Crow pays tribute to his brothers- and sisters-in-arms who volunteer to keep peace and freedom in America. One example is “Broken” from the album “Heartworn Tragedy”.

Crow eventually moved to Austin to get closer to and dive into the music scene. Since then he has released eight self-co-produced albums in just over a decade, including "Wear My Ring" which, in the first six months of its release, sold well over 150,000 copies. The first time I heard "Wear My Ring" I thought, "This guy needs to be heard; he's good and his music has a twist to it."

Apparently, Rolling Stone magazine felt the same way. In 2016, Crow made their list of "Rolling Stone's 10 New Country Artists You Need To Know". When asked about genre of music, Bart refers to it as a mix of blue-collar, Texas country, hard-edged southern rock, soul, and blues. Maybe that's why Bart Crow tends to have a growing list of raving fans.

Crow also made his mark in Nashville when he appeared on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. So it's no surprise his music continues to dominate the top of the charts. To date, Crow has had six #1 songs, and several others that have made it to the top five.

It's also not surprising to see several from different branches of the military standing in the front row at his concerts. Speaking of concerts, Bart Crow is scheduled to be in Abilene on October 28 for the 2023 Monster Mash Bash. I hope to see you there.
