    Bruce, Ed (29th December 1939 - Present)

    Country and western singer-songwriter born in Keiser, Arkansas.  His family made a fortuitous move to Memphis when he was young, and he was signed by Sun Records out of high school.  An odd turn of events resulted in early financial success for Ed Bruce:  He co-wrote a song called "Save Your Kisses" that was recorded by Tommy Roe in 1962.  It was instead the B side, "Sheila", that ingratiated itself with DJs.  " Sheila" went #1.  Record sales allowed him the luxury to move to Nashville.  In 1978, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson covered a meager Bruce chart entry from 1975 called "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys" which of course went #1.  Royalties undoubtedly gave Bruce the time to pursue his other interest:  Acting.  His rugged, weather-beaten countenance has appeared alongside Robert Preston in the CBS mini-series The Chisolms, Steven Seagal in Fire Down Below, and James Garner in Bret Maverick (for which he also wrote and recorded the theme song, with Garner).  Bruce lives in a log cabin with his wife Judith.  His latest album, Sing About Jesus, reflects his newfound faith.
