Rob Harris Is My Friend

Rob is one of my friends from college. For the past bunch of years, he's been the worship minister at a church just outside Nash-vegas, Franklin TN to be specific. Rob is a great talent, and leads a mean worship service. We've used a number of the worship tunes he's penned at our church in Anderson (and I think we even reported them to CCLI...). Lately, Rob has spent a good bit of time writing. I'll preface this by saying I'm not a country music fan. In fact, I make fun of it often....and can't we all agree that there's plenty there to make fun of?? (Sadly, as I travel around the area of my new residence....lets just say the seek button on the radio seems to only find country stations).

Anyway, I do enjoy Rob's songs. Many of them make me feel like I should be at Texas Roadhouse eating peanuts and waiting on my onion blossom. You can check out a bunch of his songs here at this site, or at his myspace music page here. A few that are my faves: "Three Months & A Winnebago," "Too Far Gone," and his rendition of (with Joey Martin on vocals....reminds me a bit of Julie Miller) Freebird. (these songs are Rob's originals that he wrote, but with studio vocals....at least I think that's accurate). Check him out, and listen for one of his songs to eventually hit the radio...and if it does, tell me. I probably won't be listening - but the CD that contains a Rob Harris penned tune will be the first...and perhaps only....country CD I purchase!

  1. That CD you gave me with some of his songs on it sounded so legit. Not exactly my style but I can obviously see his talent in penning some classic pop and country.

    Larz...wow! I feel so honored. I've never been the subject of a blog post before. (Is the title a play on the youtube sensation, "Jesus Is My Friend"?)

    Thanks for the kind words and for sharing some of my tunes with your readers. If I ever have a #1 in the country market, you're invited to the party!

  3. Hey man, my privilege! And don't get too inflated...I don't have that many "readers"...though I don't know why. And I didn't think of the "Jesus Is My Friend" tie-in, but I'm going to go watch it now! That's hilarious!
