Country Weekly Magazine
It's been way too long since we heard from Ed Bruce. His
decade-long string of smashes like "You're The Best Break This
Old Heart Ever Had" and "You Turn Me On (Like A Radio)"
ended in the late 80's and he has been pretty much off the scene since
then. So the big question has to be: Can he still cut it?
"This Old Hat" answers that question in the
warmest, most unassuming way you could imagine. Ed, delivers these 13
songs-including some new versions of his old hits, such as a gorgeous
take on "You're The Best Break" in such a quietly confident
way that you'd think he hasn't been away for a moment.
Country Music News - "The
voice of Country Music in Canada"
Getting to hear Ed Bruce on disc again is one of the
better gifts that fans of "real" country music have been
given so far in the 21st century. The man possesses one of the
all-time great voices of the genre and his music has been sadly missed
in recent years.

About Ed Bruce
Ed Bruce is a songwriter/songwriter from Nashville.
Ed is the songwriter of one of the anthems of country music,
"Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys". He has
strong distinctive voice and a great story teller in his songs. He is
considered by some as a new alternative country music artist and
others as just a great traditional country artist. With past recording
in Nashville thru MCA and RCA, he is a a pro and well respected by his
peers as not only an artist, but, also, a great songwriter.
With a string of hits, both as an artist and a writer, Ed
Bruce has maintained a successful career for more than four decades.
"Mamma's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys",
"After All", "Girls, Women and Ladies", "When
You Fall In Love Everything's A Waltz", "My First Taste of
Texas", "Ever, Never Loving You", "The Last Cowboy
Song", and the "Theme from Bret Maverick" are just a
few of the self-penned hit songs from this great artist. Then there's
"Texas When I Die" and "The Man That Turned My Mama
On" which were giant hits for Tanya Tucker - and the list goes
Ed was born in Keiser, Arkansas. Early on, the family
moved to Memphis and he claims Tennessee as his home. In the late
70's, he represented the state as "The Tennessean" in a
nationwide campaign promoting tourism. Ed started writing songs in his
early teens and first recorded on the famed Sun Records label while a
senior in high school. Writing the B-side of Tommy Roe's million
seller "Sheila" furnished funds and motivation for Ed to
move to Nashville in 1962. "See The Big Man Cry", recorded
by CMA Hall-of-Famer Charlie Louvin, earned Ed his first BMI award and
Charlie credits the song with establishing him as a solo artist.
"Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys" and
"Texas When I Die" also earned Grammy and CMA nominations
for Song of the Year and are both certified for 1,000,000 broadcast
performances. In addition to performing and writing, Ed also has a
very successful acting career, He appeared in the CBS mini-series,
"The Chisolms", with Robert Preston, the NBC movie,
"Frank and Jesse James", and of course, was the co-star or
"Bret Maverick" with James Garner. He appeared as Sgt. Daryl
Kelso in the CBS Movie of the Week, "Separated by Murder",
and as Attorney, Harlan Hayes, in the pilot episode of "XXX's
& OOO's produced in Nashville. Other star turns include the
pragmatic Sheriff Lloyd in the Steven Segal feature, "Fire Down
Below"; Thunder Malloy in the "Walker Texas Ranger"
inspired "Son's of Thunder"; and Ed's favorite, the
curmudgeonly rancher, Mitch, in Sundance Films, "The
Outfitters". Ed was also the host of "American Sports
Cavalcade" on The Nashville Network, and hosted the seven seasons
of "Truckin' USA", also, on TNN. He recently began taping
the fourth season of "Doc on Point", a series, featuring his
dog Doc, which focuses on the training of gun dogs and airs weekly on
Outdoor Life Network. He has recorded dozens of national TV and radio
commercials including United Airlines, McDonalds, Kawasaki, John
Deere, Dodge Trucks and the Armed Services Campaign, "It's a
Great Place To Start" to name just a few. Today, as always, Ed
loves to sit around with friends and talk sports - most notably,
football and hunting, and of course, horses and dogs. There is
championship breeding among the herd of 22 Tennessee Walking Horses,
and numerous champions and Hall-of-Famers are apparent in the
pedigrees of their 5 English Setters. This "royalty" is no
more treasured, however, than the always present, variegated pack of
tail-wagging strays, orphans and drop- offs greeting visitors to Ed's
and Judith's "Home At Last" ranch. Ed Bruce's career now
spans both sides of the Atlantic. He has gained an enormous following
in Europe and performs there at least once a year. Next time you see
the movie "Electric Horseman" or hear "Mamma's Don't
Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys" on the radio, take a good
listen. It's a better biographical sketch of Ed Bruce than any of

She is a wonderful musician. I have
two of her CD's and listen to them regularly. I have even traveled to
hear her perform. Her smooth alto voice and wonderful piano are a joy
to listen to and a welcome change in this age of synthetic music.

She is probably the best all-round entertainment talent
in the Pacific Northwest. A talented pianist/singer/songwriter, her
background in Nashville combined with her love for her native Oregon
gives her show a quality that is unique. Its not country-western - its
"Lindy" and it grabs you.
