He also performed for the troops stationed at the Forward Operating Base in Baghdad, Iraq. He is President of the Fort Worth Songwriters' Association and has held that position for over 5 years. He has performed with Grammy Award winning guitarist, Brad Davis, at several locations throughout Texas and served as a judge during the "Cowboy Idol" contest in Fort Worth with Justin Frazell, television host of "Lone Star Roads". He was interviewed and appeared twice on the live radio program "Music Scene Live" with Allison Balson, and on "In The Music Room" with Randy Tredway. Several of his songs were featured and played on KFYN 1420AM, "The Warrior" and "The Bill Rainey Show" radio program, NBRN-FM, out of Nashville, TN. His songs "Send You Home" and "I'm Going Back to Texas" were also selected in the top ten of the "Ruby Almond Songwriter Contest".
Rob writes and performs all types of music, including country, Americana, acoustic coffeehouse, folk, and blues. He released his first CD, "Just the Way I Am", and he is currently working on his second CD.
