Bobby G. Rice Bio

Bobby G. Rice is proof that music is a universal language. The legendary singer-

songwriter struck success with a string of pop hit remakes in the early 70s that 

drew in country crowds, leading to 30 Billboard Chart hits, numerous awards 

and over four decades of entertaining. 

2023 marks the 50th release anniversary of the Bobby G. Rice smash number one hit,

"You Lay So Easy On My Mind." As the performer and songwriter, Rice earned CMA

nominations for single and album of the year, as well as male vocalist of the year in


And once again, stretching musical genres, Rice was further honored when such

notable names as Loretta Lynn, Conway Twitty Roy Orbison, David Houston, Kitty

Wells, Jerry Springer, Bill Anderson’s Po’ Boys Band, Pat Boone and Andy Williams all

recorded his signature song, "You Lay So Easy on My Mind."

The mild-mannered artist developed his passion for music as a child on his family’s

own radio show. His popularity quickly spread beyond his native state of Wisconsin with

the 1970 revivals of the Jimmy Gilmore pop classic, "Sugar Shack" and Bruce

Channel’s, "Hey Baby" followed by his versions of standards "Mountain Of Love" and


Bobby G. Rice’s smooth vocal styling placed more songs on the Billboard Top 10 Chart,

including "You Give Me You," "Write Me A Letter" and "Freda Comes, Freda Goes."

"Pick Me Up On Your Way Down" and "My Special Angel" also hit the charts for Rice.

Bobby G. Rice’s achievements led to some historical stages. Rice performed on the

Grand Ole Opry, the WWVA Wheeling Jamboree, the Ralph Emery Show, Nashville

Now, the Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree, Midwest Country, The Bill Anderson TV

Show, The Wilburn Brothers TV Show, The Ronnie Prophet TV Show (Toronto Canada

BBC) and the Dean Martin replacement show Music Country USA on NBC.

As an entertainer, Bobby G. Rice continues to explore the latest outlets with the release

of his music. Be watching for the new 50th anniversary release of his 1973 #1 smash

"You Lay So Easy On My Mind"on Century II Records. . Rice also continues to record,

write songs and tour with the same motto he started with, "It’s all about the fans and

giving them good music."
