Bobby G. Rice
Robert Gene Rice (born in Boscobel, Wisconsin) is an American country music singer-songwriter, known professionally as Bobby G. Rice. Between 1970 and 1988, Rice released nine albums and charted thirty songs on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. His biggest hit, "You Lay So Easy On My Mind," went all the way to number one in 1973.
 
From the heartland of America, Bobby G. Rice first burst forth onto the music scene with a 1970 revival of the popular Jimmy Gilmore pop classic “Sugar Shack” and then Bruce Channel’s “Hey Baby.”
 
Born into a musical family with its own radio show, Bobby began performing publicly at an early age.  Later he decided to test his wings as a solo artist in his native Wisconsin.
 
He succeeded, however, beyond expectations: scoring nationally.  As a stylist, he proved especially adept in adding country flavor to spicy standards like “Lover Please”, “Mountain of Love” and  “Suspicion.”  
 
When “You Lay so Easy On My Mind” was introduced in late 1972, and was a hit for Bobby as well as several others.  “You Lay so Easy On My Mind” went on to be his first number one national chart record and was later recorded by such artists as Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, Roy Orbison, Pat Boone, Andy Williams, David Houston, Jerry Springer and others.  Proving he was no “one-hit wonder”, he scored the next spring with another Top 10 tune “You Give Me You.” 
 
He is that rare breed who shows us that, talent will win, by recording his initial hits on independent labels.  With his career in high gear, he followed through with more Top 10 singles, among them, “Write Me A Letter” and “Freda Comes Freda Goes”.  Country classics he has breathed new life into include: “Pick Me Up On Your Way Down,” “My Special Angel,” and “Oh Baby Mine..
 
Bobby G. Rice was the first major artist to record a song written by Teddy Gentry of “Alabama.”  The song was “I May Never Be Your Lover (But I‘ll Always Be Your Friend).” 
 
Despite such accomplishments, he has always been among the first to volunteer his talents for a benefit or worthy cause.   He remains the same, Bobby G. Rice, one step beyond ordinary entertainment.
Tony Booth
Country singer/songwriter/guitarist Tony Booth grew up in Tampa, but launched his musical career in the Southwest. He made his professional debut with the Mel Savage Band and soon toured with Jimmy Snyder. In 1968, after founding the band Modern Country, Booth began working in Las Vegas and from there moved to clubs in California. He renamed the group the Tony Booth Band and became the house band at the Palomino in California. He cut his first single, "Big Lonely World," with K-Ark and signed to MGM in 1970, where he had his first hit with a cover of Merle Haggard's "Irma Thompson."

Booth's career really took off in 1972 when he scored three Top 20 hits, including "The Key's in the Mailbox." The next year he had five more hits, including a cover of the Doris Day hit "Secret Love" and "When a Man Loves a Woman (The Way I Love You)." However, his career waned and he only had three minor hits in 1974. After releasing two unsuccessful singles, Booth was dropped from Capitol in 1975. Two years later, he recorded the single "Letting Go" with United Artists and did not appear on the charts again. During the 1990s, Booth played with Gene Watson's band.

Booth currently lives in Alvin, Texas, with his wife and family, and appears frequently in the band at the Alvin Opry with his brother Larry. Booth has also resumed touring on his own again, playing mostly in southern states such as Texas and Oklahoma. Booth signed with Heart of Texas Records in 2006 and has released 10 CDs, as well as two albums with Curtis Potter and Darrell McCall as "The Survivors," traveling all over Texas and Nashville.

Jack Mosley
Jack Mosley, originally from Panama City Florida, is considered by many to be one of the best "TropRock" song writers and entertainers in the country. As an entertainer, Jack has performed all over the United States and the Caribbean and has opened shows for artist such as Johnny Cash, Tanya Tucker, Phil Vassar, The Warren Brothers, and Bad Company to name a few.

Jack is a natural born story teller and that is obvious when you listen to the songs he writes. It is no wonder that his early influences were Dan Fogleberg, Harry Chapin and Jimmy Buffett.

After living in Nashville for nine years honing his song writing skills, Jack and his wife Debra re-located back to his home State of Florida where he quickly fell into the "TropRock" music scene and started writing the kind of music that is near and dear to his heart.

Six Cd's later, Jack has proven he made the right move. With his CD's being played on radiomargaritaville.com, jimmydreamz.com and almost all of the other TropRock radio stations (both internet, satellite and standard FM), and performing shows from Key West to Michigan, he has firmly established himself as a major force in TropRock music..
aAs a solo artist or with his band, and in addition to his original music, he has years of experience performing cover songs.

Tim Spears
Deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia lives a lot of country music lovers, but none that loves it more than Tim Spears. He has been singing, writing and performing since the age of 11. While the children were out playing at all the family gatherings, Tim was inside listening to his dad and uncle sing all those old country songs. Between each song they would play, Tim would try to get a free guitar lesson from anyone that would show him anything. At the age of 17 he went to his Jr. Variety show, ( in the heat of the rock n roll era, with all teenagers there ) he did his rendition of "easy lovin" and there received his first standing ovation. At that point he knew this is where his life long ambitions were.

Tim still lives in that same hometown of Waynesboro, Virginia. and has gained the respect and admiration of a town he really loves. Since that variety show, he has appeared on The Nashville Network ( TNN ) several times and performed on the "EARNEST TUBB RECORD SHOP" show, just a few of his accomplishments.

Children are one of his main concerns. Each year, for the last 18 years, he has done a benefit concert and gives 100% of the proceeds to these needy children of his home town. He raises it locally, spends it locally and spends it on the local children....Last year, along with ‘’shopperones’’ from his town, The TIM SPEARS CHRISTMAS FUND, INC. members, they personally took 452 children shopping a the local K-mart and Wal-mart stores.
At last, Tim and his belief in God, has changed all his writing abilities, using them toward what he is calling "POSITIVE COUNTRY MUSIC". His latest effort is entitled, "IT"S ALL IN THE SONG" This is a collection of songs he has written from true experiences he has seen or been involved with. These songs are funny, patriotic, sad, warm, and some are love songs that just melt the heart. Along with his great friend and manager, Melvin Sorrells, they are trying to promote 24 songs, 2 of which Mel wrote, and take them directly to the people. The response he is getting from the people, going directly to you, rather than having promotion companies charge him enormous prices, has been staggering. His songs have gotten great reviews by Alan Jackson, The Statler Bros., Toby Keith and Vince Gill. If you like country music, you'll love Tim Spears.
