Kris Kristofferson is a songwriter. Bobby Bear is a singer & a Kris Kristofferson fan.
Kris is many other things to many people, but he mostly refers to himself as a songwriter. He has often mentioned the sheer enjoyment he gets from hearing & watching other artists interpret & perform his songs.
Bobby Bear is one such performer. Bobby also does other things, but he enjoys singing, & really enjoys singing Kristofferson songs & he does it well. Like Kris, he avoided the drugs scene. There is, however, a touch of Jack Daniels & cigarettes in his voice.
Bobby Bear sings Kris Kristofferson – With the Texas Teddybears
We recently had a party night in our Facebook Group. Members shared their favourite Kris covers, & this turned me on to Bobby Bear. Other covers were posted too, but Bobby’s really stood out. Perhaps because I hadn’t heard him before? I have since listened a few times over, & they just keep sounding better.
This is a section for fanmail. Duplication is an honest form of homage, & I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do.
