At the age of 15, Bradley Black bought his first guitar, had someone tune those six intimidating strings, learned his first three chords, and his long journey to Tennessee began...not that he knew it then. He didn't purchase that guitar or learn those three chords because of his love of music or dreams of being a rock star, but in true cowboy style, he bought that guitar to write a song that would impress and win over the heart of a girl. He can't recall if that song worked the way he intended, but his love of writing music was born.
In the days since that first appeal to a teenage girl's heart, this Oregon-born country boy has devoted his life to all the adventures this world and this life have to offer. Those adventures drive the story in each song he writes. From the west coast of the U.S. to the north coast of Ireland, from the -40 degree winters on the ranch in northern Montana to that 110 degree summer in the desert of Nevada, from the top of the Rocky Mountains to the shores of the Gulf of Mexico and every place in between, with plenty of stops for bull riding, bronc bustin', car racing, and swing dancing. His songs will give you more stories and more adventure than you could live in ten lifetimes.
Like Odysseus, John Wayne, and Chris LeDoux wrapped into one, this cowboy will take you around the world and back again.
