Summary If you browse through the greatest recordings in history, you will find one name appearing again and again--Bobby Wood. Bobby has left his mark on this world one lick at a time. His ability to create memorable hooks of soul and simplicity explains his success in all music genres. Every artist loves Bobby for his diversity, not only for his style, but also for his diversity in instruments. Walking Among Giants is the story of a man who never gave up in spite of discouragement and tragedy. It is the true story of a man who not only believes in miracles, but who has lived them. It is moving, often heart wrenching, but always inspiring. It is the story of a man who is living the American dream in the world of music and the story of a man of unbending faith. Bobby Wood is also one of the most talented songwriters and producers in the industry, and, according to music legend Garth Brooks, he may very well be the most successful musician to grace the music business for the last five decades. But Bobby himself will tell you he did not do it alone. First, and foremost, he is a man of great character and faith. It is his faith in God that has underpinned his life and work, and continues to do so. He has played with the greats, which include Elvis, Garth, Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, among others
