rob mcnurlin

Rob McNurlin follows in the footsteps of his heroes that include Johnny Cash and Ramblin Jack Elliott. Rob delivers his original songs in a style that reflects the traditional country/folk sound that has become legendary. He recently performed with Marty Stuart at the Ryman Auditorium. Rob’s latest CD is “Rhinestoned." -Loretta

Rob McNurlin was raised in Eastern Kentucky, the hymns in church, the Johnny Cash Show on TV, a harmonica from his grandmother, his parents records and a guitar on his ninth Christmas set him on a very musical path.

He began studying traditional music learning hundreds of folk, hillbilly-blues and Gospel tunes. Inspired by Cash, Dylan, Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams he started writing songs and mixing these originals with the traditional.

Rob has released five cds including "Cowboy Boot Heel", recorded at Johnny Cash's Cabin Studio, produced by his son John Carter Cash and a duet with guest Ramblin' Jack Elliott. "Lonesome Valley Again" reached #26 on the FAR charts and #55 on the Americana chart, remaining in the top 100 over two months. The cd "River, Road or Rail" was a collaberation with Nancy Apple and reached #1 on the FAR chart, top 40 on the Americana Europe chart. His latest cd "Sacred Numbers" is a collection of Gospel songs.

McNurlin has toured with Ramblin' Jack Elliott and Hot Tuna, his songs have been covered by Ronnie Elliott among others and used in two award winning documentaries. He is currently touring and working on a new cd.
