The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame will host Becky Hobbs for a songwriting showcase on March 23rd at 7 pm at the Frisco Depot, 401 S. 3rd, in Muskogee.
Hobbs was born and raised in Bartlesville and is a Cherokee Nation citizen. She started writing songs at nine, and in high school formed “Four Faces of Eve,” documented as the first all-female rock band in Oklahoma. After attending Tulsa University, playing in a southern rock band in Baton Rouge, LA, and nine years of gigging and recording in Los Angeles, she sunk her boots into Nashville.
As a recording artist, she has had more than 20 chart singles/albums, including “Jones on the Jukebox,” “Honky Tonk Saturday Night,” “Are There Any More Like You (Where You Came From),” and Billboard Top Ten duet with Moe Bandy, “Let’s Get Over Them Together.” She co-wrote “Angels Among Us” (recorded by Alabama), and Conway Twitty’s #1 record “I Want To Know You (Before We Make Love).” Alabama recorded two more of her songs, Helen Reddy recorded four of her songs, and other songs of hers have been recorded by George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Glen Campbell, Emmylou Harris, Demo Lovato, Wanda Jackson, John Anderson, Janie Fricke, Lacy J. Dalton, Ken Mellons, Shelly West, Moe Bandy, Joe Stampley, Johnny Bush, Shirley Bassey, Jane Oliver, the Cherokee National Youth Choir and more. Known for her high-energy shows, Hobbs has performed in more than 40 countries, including nine in Africa.
Hobbs will be joined Thursday by guests Jim Paul Blair and Shawn Crittendon.
