The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum is set to spotlight renowned keyboardist Bobby Wood in its upcoming Nashville Cats series, an in-depth interview program celebrating musicians and session singers who have significantly contributed to artists’ success in recording studios and on concert tours. This event will take place on Saturday, August 17, 2024, at 2:30 p.m. in the museum’s Ford Theater.

Bobby Wood, whose career has garnered the respect of many prominent musicians, including Country Music Hall of Fame members Garth Brooks, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Sam Phillips, and Elvis Presley, will be the focus of the program. Raised on a family farm in Mississippi, Wood relocated to Memphis after high school to chase his musical ambitions. His career was on an upward trajectory in 1964 with his recording of “If I’m a Fool for Loving You” climbing the charts until a car accident sidelined him for six months. Upon recovery, Wood pivoted to session work and songwriting, becoming a crucial part of the Memphis Boys, the legendary studio team behind numerous hits recorded at American Sound Studio. Their work included tracks by Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond, Wilson Pickett, and Dusty Springfield.

In 1972, Wood moved to Nashville, where he collaborated with numerous Country Music Hall of Fame members, including Garth Brooks, Kris Kristofferson, Kenny Rogers, and Tammy Wynette. Notably, he has been a fixture in Brooks’ studio band since the onset of Brooks’ career.
