Interview with German Country Music Singer Rob Georg
Country music has always been regarded as an American sound bred in the southern regions, but if fans have learned anything from the likes of Keith Urban, country music can come up from anywhere in the world. Which leads us to the German cowboy himself, Rob Georg.
Like many, Rob Georg wrote out a bucket list and on top of catching a plane from Germany to Nashville to work on his vocals. In the middle of crossing that item off the top of his list, he met singer-songwriter, Kristin K. Smith. Encouraged by her words and moved by her actions, Rob Georg started to record and publish music.
Under her guidance, and with the help of a handful of other talented folks, Rob Georg started down a musical path and never looked back. That was in June 2018. Now he’s five songs deep, including his latest releases, the country ballad “Carry The Wind” and “Dust.”
Very few would imagine a cowboy from Germany, but Rob Georg just doesn’t wear the label, he lives the lifestyle. He spent the first chapter of his life as a professional equestrian athlete.
Today he is just a simple man with a song in his heart that lives on a ranch with his eight dogs, 50 sheep, and almost two dozen horses. His songs are a reflection of the life he leads and the stories he lives to tell. All in true country fashion.
How did you come by your stage name?
I am looking for authenticity in music, so I decided to use my real name. Though Rob is just the short version of Robert.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
My parents made me play the piano when I was 6 years old. Since that time I love making music. My vocal coach in Nashville, Kristin K. Smith, made me realize that I have something special in my voice.
She was the one pushing into my career, and I am so thankful that she was so persistent back then. Without her, I would have never published one of my songs. Today she is my producer and Co-Writer.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I grew up on a ranch with horses around me, my Dad was a Country and Rock Music fan, my Mom was into 70’s Pop and German Schlager. The biggest influence on me had Kenny Rogers with his song “The Gambler”. I love that he is telling stories in his songs. You can also find a story of my life packed in each and every one of my songs.
On your upcoming project, how did you come up with the concept?
My brand new single which dropped 06/07/2019 is all about tattoos. I am totally addicted to that kind of Body Art and have parts of my body covered with ink.
It was at one of my tattoo sessions when I felt it could be nice to put my love for tattoos in a song. The same evening I started to write on that song, the result was a piece of Southern Rock with a little Country Blend.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
As I am living on a ranch with horses, dogs, sheep, and cattle, I have a 24/7 job. Sometimes it’s hard for me to find enough time for my music. I guess that is really the biggest challenge for me.
My greatest attribute that I can work very good when I am under pressure. I can sit down and focus in front of an empty piece of paper, havin’ a deadline comin’ up and somehow the lyrics would just float.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
In my eyes, you are never best at what you do! You are never too old to learn. Every time I listen to my older recordings I find little things which I’d do differently now. So for me, tryin’ to get better is a never-ending story.
What are your plans for the near future?
I just came back from another recording session in Nashville and a radio tour from Denver to Seattle. At the moment I have my gig season going on until 31st of October, followed by another recording session in Nashville and another radio tour through the US mid region. My first album will drop in January 2020, so I will be a bit busy the next months.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Yes, I have to thank a lot of people. First of all, I have to thank Kristin K. Smith, my producer, vocal coach, and co-writer for all she did for me. Then there are the guys of the band tracking the instruments for my tracks at Saxman Studios in Nashville.
They are doing a perfect and unbelievable job led by Skot Bradley, my music director at the recordings and also one of my co-writers. Danielle Shields, my Nashville photographer, that lady does a great job.
My parents, daughter, son-in-law and wife who are supporting in so many ways. The music critics, blogs, playlists, radio DJ’s and stations playing, reviewing and promoting my music and last but not least, my supporters around the world enjoying my music.
How can fans find you?
Fans can find me all over the internet. My music is out on all platforms, like Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Amazon, google play, etc.
I have my own website online where you can find a lot of stuff about my music and me:
You can also find me on Social Media:
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Be authentic. Be real. Never give up and keep fighting for what you want. Don’t get disappointed if someone tells you, as an Indie Artist you will never make it far.
I made it on the Cover of the New Music Weekly Magazine in June and am leading the US Western Region AC Radio charts at the moment. Always give the best you can and never be too arrogant to take good advice. That’s just my two cents.
