Interview with Country Cowboy/Singer/Songwriter Paul Bogart

By: Judy Shields

Rancho Cucamonga, California (The Hollywood Times) – Paul Bogart told The Hollywood Times that he would like the opportunity to do a duet with Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton or Reba McEntire.  What a great selection of country music duet partners to hope to sing with!  He also mentioned to look up the group The Time Jumpers, who Vince Gill is a member.

Cowboy and traditional country singer songwriter, Paul Bogart, stays true to his roots with his reimagined forthcoming single, “Ain’t No Sunshine,” originally written and performed by the late Bill Withers. Bogart has taken a bluesy and timeless single and added his own traditional country flair. With swampy guitars, smooth vocals, and a rootsy fiddle part, the single creates a rich and earthy presentation of a beloved classic. This is the first single off his highly anticipated record coming this November. Listen to “Ain’t No Sunshine” here.

The Hollywood Times had the opportunity to catch up with Paul Bogart in Oklahoma (live in his pickup truck, what a true cowboy) to talk about his new single release Ain’t No Sunshine and several other great songs. Do not miss the opportunity to listen to Paul’s version of Ain’t No Sunshine, he pays an amazing tribute to this classic song, that most of us have heard one time or another.

“The acoustic guitar underpinnings and swelling steel guitar, combined with Bogart’s easy, smooth vocal delivery, offer up shades of a young George Strait as Bogart delivers an understated, perfectly-drawn performance, propelled by an arrangement that is equally well-crafted.”

About Paul Bogart

Though his songs are fresh and he himself is young, Paul Bogart is an old soul with a knack for capturing time-honored traditions and summing up classic sentiments in catchy, commercially-viable songs. Exuding sincerity and a rare, down-to-earth charm, he is, simply put, the epitome of traditional country music. After nearly a decade of writing, playing and touring, Bogart has begun pulling in big numbers in every arena, literally. Whether it’s the main stage at the AQHA World Championships with thousands in attendance or the social media scene with over 3.5 million fans reached through all social video platforms, led by “The Cowboy Way” and “Cowboy Ride” with over 2.6 million views, Bogart’s songs have connected with America’s Heartland in a real, tangible way that modern country has perhaps missed. He released the album Leather in 2017 which garnered critical praise for “grounding itself in the foundations of country music fandom’s tenets of faith and family,” (CriticalBlast.com) and Taste of Country called his 2019 single “When the Cowboys Are Gone” “nothing but authentic.” Often compared to Chris LeDoux and George Strait, the modern-cowboy has written songs for Porter Wagoner, Wade Hayes, Roger Creager, Kevin Fowler and, most recently, one of only two outside cuts on the great songwriter Red Steagall’s new record Hats Off To The Cowboy.
