ROGER WOODS, SR
Growing up in the farm belt in the middle of the country’s rice industry created a man of many accomplishments as a result of developing his hard working ethics, a sincere nature guided by his belief in a higher power to help your neighbor, and having some success fueled many of his next career moves. After careful consideration and his loving family to support him, Roger became a Crop Duster Pilot and for many years enjoyed flying until a serious crash put a slight crimp in his plans! Sometimes when one door closes another will open and Roger’s earlier days, spent with family and friends at many of the popular entertainment clubs spurned a desire to help artists succeed in the music industry.
Roger’s cousin, Joe Lewis, was an accomplished songwriter and musician who wrote songs for Conway Twitty and played bass in his band. Roger always liked Joe’s song, Hello Darlin’. Well this was just the start, as there were many popular artists that Roger met that shaped his interest and they include Charlie Rich, Jerry Lee Lewis and Mickey Gilley. He heard some great music from the band members too, including Owen Bloodworth, cousins’ Paul Holder and Jerry Bell to name just a few! Music was part of their life and clubs such as Bob King’s “King Capri and the BNI Club, Porky’s Roost Top, the Silver Moon Club were places that Roger’s interest deepened spending much time with family and friends!
Now that Roger’s crop dusting days have come to an end and farm management interests are behind him, his absolute love for country music artists and song have taken center stage! ROGER’S COUNTRY MUSIC PROMOTION has left the starting line and taking “flight” as his management of Cashbox’s artist, Bobby Cargill has recently exceeded Debbie Boon’s record of holding the top of the chart for the longest period of time! As much as this is a compliment to his dedication and hard working nature, it is Roger’s desire to see a good artist accomplish his own goals that fuels Roger’s spirit! There are also artists that are reenergizing their careers, and who wouldn’t want to listen and watch someone like Dick Flood aka “Okefenokee Joe” rise to the top again with songs, well written; music well played and exposing the unique art of songwriting! There are people who were born with the gift of music in their blood and where music surrounded them and saturated their souls like Kevin Skinner, who has accomplished so much in so little time and looking to move forward and bring his unique and heart felt songwriting to the forefront. Roger’s Country Music Promotions engines are humming now! (Roger Woods, St can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org )
