Rob Dixon grew up in the small town of Sharptown, Maryland in a family of musicians and singers. He was given his first record player at the age of 5 and his first record was Lefty Frizzell's "Long Black Veil." Rob's passion for country music had just begun. He learned to play the guitar when he was 12 years old and at age 14 began his stage career in his father's neighborhood bar and band. It didn't take Rob long to realize that singing and playing country music was all he would ever want to do.
Rob began writing music when he was 15 and recorded his first album (all original songs) when he was 20. This first album achieved regional success in the Maryland / Delaware / Virginia area with two number one singles.

In 1977, Rob moved to Nashville to pursue his musical dream. He soon went to work for JD Sumner and the Stamps Quartet who were the back up singers for Elvis Presley. After working with JD for almost a year, Rob joined the band of David Houston, a Grand Ole Opry star. During this time, Rob played and sang on the Grand Ole Opry.
In 1979, Rob formed his own band which became the house band at a prominent nightclub in Nashville called Faron Young's Celebrity Ballroom.
 
In 1980, Rob went to work for the legendary George Jones as lead guitar player, band leader and front man. During this time he became friends with Billy Bob Barnett, the original owner and builder of Billy Bob's Texas in Fort Worth. Billy Bob wanted to use his new club to help Rob further his career so in 1981, he offered Rob a position in the house band at Billy Bob's Texas as singer and guitar player.

Rob formed The Lost Cowboy Band in 1982. Rob Dixon and The Lost Cowboy Band have been playing country music in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex longer than any other band and still going strong.
 
In 1987, Rob went to Nashville to record his second album, "Let Me Sing You A Song." His brand new CD, "Through Her Eyes," was released January 1, 2000. Rob recorded, produced and mastered this CD in his own studio, RD Studio in Combine, Texas.
 
Rob's deep, soulful voice fills your heart. It does exactly what music is meant to do - and more. Rob's passion for good country music can be best summed up in his own words from the liner notes of his new CD - "Country Music is music of the heart. It expresses every emotion we feel, good or bad, throughout our entire lives. It is the classical music of the common man and is the music I truly love. I believe as long as songwriters write songs from the heart, singers sing from the heart, and people listen with their hearts,
country music will never die."
