CMA Fest Artist Spotlight: Robby Johnson

by Missy Wolf / 2864 days ago / Comments

Our next CMA Fest Artist Spotlight needs little introduction. I finally got to sit and have a face to face conversation with the incredible Robby Johnson. I cannot tell you enough how much I admire this artist. The love he has for his family is beautiful. His music is breathtaking and his fans are extremely loyal.

Playing CMA Fest for the Iceman's NCMA Fest was an incredible experience for many artists like Johnson. Alley Taps offered an intimate show for these artists to connect with fans. The fans loved every bit of it. Watch our conversation now and learn even more about this fantastic musician, his experience and CMA Fest and more. Check out his bio (taken from his website) below for some great background information.

“Nashville's new rising star grew up in a French province in Canada, learning to speak his accent-free English by watching American television. He also listened to lots of music and amongst all the tunes he discovered and fell in love with country music.

"It's music that is healing. It resonated with me and drew me in." Poverty and shyness were a way of life for Robby growing up, but in his imagination, he dreamed big. He always believed that one day – someday -- he would find a path toward the life he hoped for. Going from job to job trying to find a meaning to his life he received a paid demo session as a Christmas present. The experience changed him forever. It was the first time he realized his voice might be special and that his songs could affect those who heard them. In 2012, Robby decided to come to Nashville and cut more songs. So strongly did he believe in his dream that when the company where he worked as a manufacturers’ sales rep refused to give him time off, he took a leap of faith and moved to Nashville.”

I urge you all to follow Johnson on social media. Download his music and share it with everyone you can. His energy on stage and the passion in his heart will captivate you and make you crave more. Do yourself a favor and just give in to that craving. ~Missy

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
