Since releasing his debut album, Blue Eyed Angels, in 2010, Rob Baird has forged a path through the airwaves and the highways of Texas and beyond. That initial effort featured the singles, “Fade Away” (a top 5 single on the Texas Music Chart), “Could Have Been My Baby,” and the title track. In 2012 Baird followed up Blue Eyed Angels with I Swear It’s The Truth, named one of the top twenty albums of the year by Spin Magazine. This effort showcased his influences, including Tom Petty, Chris Knight, and Robert Earl Keen. I Swear It’s The Truth featured the hit single, “Dreams and Gasoline” which was added to XM’s “The Highway” and was featured in the ABC drama, Nashville. The video for the single was shot in Joshua Tree, CA and was supported by CMT and their multiple platforms. His current single, “Same Damn Thing” is climbing the Texas Music Chart and was recently heard in the The CW hit series, Hart of Dixie. Baird’s “More Than Willing” from his latest effort was featured in Lifetime’s Army Wives and is scheduled to be used in an upcoming episode of Hart Of Dixie. The past three years, Baird has kept an active touring schedule balancing support slots with Eli Young Band, Corey Smith, Don Williams, and many others with developing an impressive string of headlining dates in several major markets. Baird has been spending time writing with several of Nashville’s hit songwriters including Mark Nesler, Scooter Carusoe, Marla Cannon, Odie Blackman, among others. 2014 looks to hold a new chapter for the Memphis native as he plans to release his third album, explore new touring markets, and reach audiences worldwide.
