The name on the record labels and Billboard charts list him as Bobby Lee Springfield, but he prefers just Springfield or Bobby. Springfield started in the music business around the age of 15 and it didn’t take long for him to begin to make a name for himself as a young singer/songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee.
Starting in the mid-Seventies, Bobby wrote hit songs such as I’d Do It With You for Pat and Shirley Boone; and If I Had to Do It All Over Again for Roy Clark; and I Know a Good Thing When I Feel It for Pia Zodora. His streak of chart-topping Billboard hits continued through the 80s and into the 90s. As a songwriter, he was sought after by some of Country Music’s biggest stars. He penned classics like That’s What I Get For Loving You for Eddy Arnold, and Some Memories Just Won’t Die for Marty Robbins.
Springfield also sang his own songs, and his 1987 album All Fired Up! included the song Hank Drank, which climbed the Billboard charts to number 75. Today, Bobby continues to find inspiration for his words and music in Big Sky Country, having arrived in Missoula in 2005.
