CRS 2018 with Laura: Paul Bogart

by Laura Lou / 4 days ago / Comments

Being raised in a small town like Oologah, Oklahoma there are some things you can not escape. One being a “real” cowboy and the other is everyone knows your name.  We had the opportunity to catch up with Paul Bogart, Oologah native, during Country Radio Seminar in Nashville and he had a lot to share with us.

Bogart shared that he has been competing in the American Quarter Horse Association Rodeo circuit since he was a teenager and it helped pay his way through college.  Bogart learned how to ride and compete from his father and has since won several World Championship titles. He needed to make a decision between rodeo and music and while he put music in the forefront, rodeo is still in his blood. 

With a two-year-old and new baby at home, Bogart has taken some time with his family and has finally released his first album in four years, titled Leather.

Listen to our conversation to hear about the album and what he has coming up.

We also learned that Bogart returned to his hometown to shoot the music video for the single, “All That Cowboy Jazz”, at a local venue that has always supported him and his career. The venue, The Ironhorse, returned the favor and dedicated the dance floor with Bogart’s name and single title displayed on the center.  Watch as he tells how that affected him when he saw it for the first time.

Bogart is definitely the real deal and as humble as they come. You do not want to miss all that is happening with this talented artist so make sure to follow him on all social media platforms and check out his website for up to date information. 

Don’t forget to grab your copy of Leather, available everywhere music is sold.

About Laura Lou

Laura Lou Journalist

Beginning about age 13, music always been my “safe place”, my “escape”, it became a part of who I am. My background includes being a photographer/journalist for newspapers, magazines and radio stations and more recently I have been an artist manager. What I continue to strive to learn is, what is important to the fans/readers? I find that the answer is always that they want to feel close to the artist they are supporting. The human contact that we all need is something that I want to deliver to anyone that happens to read something I write or see a photograph I shoot. It is important to me to provide that experience, because I am, after all, still always a “fan” and that giddy 13-year-old girl is simply amazed! I never imagined that my passion and love for music would lead me where I am today! I use the hashtag #iamtheluckiestgirliknow because I cannot believe how blessed I am! I’m excited to see “what happens next” and take you all along with me! This is going to be amazing…
