After his military service he moved to Ireland with dreams of a career in country music.
“Kick Ass Country” was Robert’s first major hit, but it was “Say You Love Me” that made him a household name in Ireland. Other hits include “Mama Courtney”, “Louisiana Saturday Night”, “Cajun Dance”, “Papa Loved Mama” and “Wham Bam”.
