Item Description
Bob Luman, born Robert Glynn Luman 15 April 1937 in
Nacogdoches, Texas, died December 27, 1978.
Bob Luman started out as a rockabilly performer and later
switched to country. Through his teens, Luman was primarily
interested in singing country music like his idol Lefty Frizzell, but
then he saw Elvis, which inspired him to try his hand at the
rockabilly sound.
Soon after graduating, Luman won a talent contest, leading to his
debut on the Louisiana Hayride. He became a regular in the mid-
'50s, and had a small role in the 1957 film 'Carnival Rock'; still,
his singles did nothing on the charts.
In 1958 Luman cut a demo 'Guitar Picker' with Eddie Cochran
and Fred Carter on lead guitars. In 1959, the Pittsburgh Pirates
offered Luman a contract, however, the Everly Brothers talked
him into recording the Boudleaux Bryant song 'Let's Think About
Living' which became a Top Ten hit on both the country and pop
charts. His follow-up, 'The Great Snowman', was also a hit, but
he was drafted, and spent the next two years in the military.
In 1964, he began recording for Hickory Records, and the
following year, he became a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Luman eventually signed with Epic Records and had a
string of Top 25 hits over the next ten years. Luman had a major
heart attack in 1975.
His final chart appearance came in 1977, the following year he
contracted pneumonia and died at the age of 41.
