kinds of songs he has written and chosen to record. Still an in-demand and popular concert performer,

its greatest heroes, Bobby Goldsboro has come through unscathed, as
healthy and wholesome as the clean-cut country boy he was in the halcyon
days of rock and roll. Like fine wine, he has improved with age.
And, the best of Bobby Goldsboro may be yet to come.
