About the Author

Bobby Braddock grew up in Florida, traveled the South as a rock 'n' roll musician, and became a songwriter in Nashville in the mid-1960s. Many of his songs, such as "D-I-V-O-R-C-E," "Golden Ring," "He Stopped Loving Her Today," "Time Marches On," and "I Wanna Talk about Me" are country music standards. In 2001, he embarked on a new career as a producer, discovering singer Blake Shelton and making several number one records with him.
