Chanteur US né Robert Lord, le 6 Janvier 1934 à Sanford (Floride). Bobby Lord commence sa carrière durant son adolescence en devenant animateur TV d'un show musical "The Bobby Lord Homefolks Show". Grâce à sa rencontre avec le célèbre compositeur Bouldeaux Bryant il signe en 1953 un contrât pour Columbia records. C'est durant cette période qu'il enregistrent quelques fantastiques Rockabilly, Hillbilly Boogie et Country hits. Il fait également de régulières apparitions au show TV "The Ozark Jubilee", puis en 1960, il participe au programme du Grand Ole Opry. En 1961 il quitte Columbia pour Hickory, laissant le Rockabilly au profit de la Country music. Bobby Lord est décédé le 16 Février 2008 dans un hôpital de Stuart (Floride), près de son domicile de Jensen Beach, après une longue maladie.

Lord was born January 6, 1934 in Sanford, Florida, but grew up in Tampa. As a teenager, he entered talent contests, wowing crowds with his edgy rockabilly style. He was popular with Tampa's young crowd, playing concerts at dance halls. At Plant High School, he met his wife, Mozelle, whom he married when he was 20.
After graduating from Plant, he was offered the chance to host his own television show while a freshman at the University of Tampa. The Bobby Lord Homefolks Show was an hour-long program on Saturday nights on WSUN-TV in St. Petersburg and featured Lord singing with a backing band. In 1952, he won a nationwide talent competition sponsored by TV Guide which led to an appearance on Paul Whiteman's TV Teen Club on ABC-TV from Philadelphia.
Soon after, songwriter Boudleaux Bryant heard one of Lord's demo tapes and passed it on to Columbia Records, which signed him in 1953. At age 19, he was the label's youngest recording star. He began releasing country and rockabilly hits for Columbia, and in 1955 joined Ozark Jubilee, an ABC-TV program based in Springfield, Missouri.
In 1960, the Jubilee was canceled and Lord moved to Nashville, where he was immediately offered a spot on the Grand Ole Opry. He continued appearing on the Opry well into the 1970s. He recorded for Hickory Records starting in 1961 and Decca Records from 1967. During this time he also hosted Opry Almanac on WSM-TV in Nashville, which was the morning counterpart to Ralph Emery's afternoon show on that station. Under the auspices of WSM-TV, he also hosted a weekly syndicated half-hour program featuring popular country artists. Lord's backing band on the syndicated show included Jerry Byrd on steel guitar, Jerry Whitehurst on piano and Spider Wilson on guitar.
In 1969, Lord left Nashville and went into semi-retirement from the music industry to devote time to his family and his interests in real estate and insurance. In the 1980s, he hosted TNN's program Country Sportsman, later called Celebrity Outdoors, until 1989. He was also the author of the 1969 book, Hit the Glory Road.
Bobby Lord died on February 16, 2008 in Stuart, Florida at the age of 74. He was a resident of Jensen Beach, Florida and was survived by his widow, Mozelle, and three children.
