New Project Features Songs by Bob DiPiero, Trent Willmon, Bill Whyte, Jenee Fleenor, Easton Corbin and More
Editor's note: Lovin' Lyrics has been a supporter of Paul and his music since 2008 and we're so glad to see him finally getting the interest he's worked so hard for. He's an artist you need to have on your playlist if you're a fan of traditional country music.
“This album is about hard work, hustle, and loving the woman God gave you,” Paul Bogart says candidly. “It’s about keeping your head down when you win and crawling back in the saddle when you hit the ground.”
These are sentiments Bogart knows firsthand, having grown up in Northeast Oklahoma in a family of truckers, team ropers and musicians. The title track hearkens back to those heartland roots and homegrown work ethic.
“Not only is Paul a great singer and writer, he is a real cowboy…when he sings a song about it, he’s lived it," said Sony Nashville recording artist, Trent Willmon.
Leather is poised to resonate with everyday people and fill an increasingly gaping hole in modern country music. It features songs written and co-written by some of the biggest names in country music — Jim Beavers (Gary Allan’s “Watching Airplanes”), Shane Minor (Eric Church’s “My Kind Of Love”, Kenny Chesney’s “Live A Little”), Easton Corbin and more.
Though his songs are fresh and he himself is young, he is an old soul with a knack for capturing time-honored traditions and summing up classic sentiments in catchy, three-minute songs. Exuding sincerity and a rare, down-to earth charm, Paul Bogart is, simply put, the epitome of traditional country music.
