Tomorrow morning is the birthday of the man George Jones proclaimed country’s best songwriter. I’ll have the audio of George saying exactly that. George is referring to Bobby Braddock and we will salute him on Saturday at the Memories between 6 and 8am.

Bobby, pictured above with his daughter Lauren, inducted into the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 1981, Bobby received the ultimate honor last year when he joined the Country Music Hall of Fame.

To date Bobby has won an amazing 29 BMI Performance Awards which are based on number of plays per year for a certain song. Bobby has also received several BMI million-air awards which are given to the writers of songs that have been played in excess of 1 million times on the radio. His songs have reached #1 13 times!

We will play a long line of his country hits like these:

“Old Flames Have New Names”

“Time Marches On”

“I Wanna Talk About Me”

“Texas Tornado”.

“He Stopped Loving Her Today” CMA Song of the Year 1980 and 1981

“People are Crazy” “Thinking of a Rendezvous”

“D.I.V.O.R.C.E.”

“Would You Catch a Falling Star”

“I Don’t Remember Loving You”

“Golden Ring”
