Robert Burgeis

Robert is one of Nashville’s few piano playing, guitar picking artists who is also a seasoned songwriter and producer. With his diverse talent and love for country music, he has been touted as ‘The Rednek RokStar’…a title he earned by being all country while looking like he emerged from the world of rock.  

To say that Burgeis is a fast rising star would be putting him exactly where he’s always aimed to be.   Shortly after moving to Nashville from a little town near Bakersfield, California, he landed much sought after gigs with such name acts as Big and Rich, John Michael Montgomery, Aaron Tippin,  Mel McDaniel, Jamey Johnson and many more.

In addition to his large Nashville fan-base, Robert has been playing national stages all over the U.S. and making thousands of fans along the way.

Playing more than 200 dates a year, this one and only ‘Rednek RokStar’ shows no signs of slowing down!
