All Music Guide:
North Carolina-born Ronnie Bowman sang gospel music with a family group from the age of three until his late-teens and is now equally effective singing traditional bluegrass tunes as he is voicing songs by contemporary singer/songwriters. He first came to the public's attention as the vocalist and bass player in the Lonesome River Band alongside Sammy Shelor, Dan Tyminski, and Tim Austin. He has since gone on to win several American Bluegrass Music Awards, including the prestigious Male Vocalist of the Year in 1995, 1998, and 1999.
