Robert Eskridge

Early Life

Country singer / songwriter Robert Eskridge was born on November 10, 1968, in Wilmington, Delaware. As a kid he bounced back and forth between California, Delaware and Eastern Kentucky, where he graduated from Morehead State University as a three (3) time National Champion Cheerleader.   Interesting family tree that ties back to Devil Anse Hatfield of the Hatfield and McCoy Feud – where he spent a lot of time with his grandmother in McCarr, Ky.

Eskridge started playing in the local bars and honky tonks at the age of 16, and throughout college and early adult years, in various bands in the Lexington, Ky area.

At one point, working with a few record labels in the early 90’s in Nashville, he garnered the stage at the Grand Ole Opry, had a Saturday night at the Ernest Tubb Record Shop, as well as the old Stock Yard and Bull Pen Lounge – where he played frequently with the George Jones Band.

As music was just starting to take off, kids, career and a need to be at home, he focused on a career that was out of the music path, but still played locally for the next 25 years with his band Southern Daze in the tri-state area.

Recent Times

Robert and Juli were attending a pancreatic cancer event, the Seena Magowitz Foundation, in the summer of 2019 and the question asked of the attendees was: “What would you do if you only had 6 months left to live”?  A profound question.   After mapping out their top three items on their bucket lists, Roberts was to do a Nashville album of his original music.   

Teaming up with Country Q records and Mike Bonagura as the producer, he released two EP’s:  My Destiny and Simple Things.   The album Simple Things was a combination of those two and has done very well on several country charts. 

  • Buck Wild and Whiskey Crazy was an Indie World Country #1 and New Music Weekly Top 10
  • Simple Things, the title track, is currently a Top 10 New Music Weekly and #4 Indie World Country, but just topped the charts on the Euro Academy of Country Music at #1.

Southern Daze is known for their southern rock style, guitars and harmonies, they’re a favorite in the Central Kentucky area.  With seasoned musicians that have the same passion for music, they have a great time on stage and enjoy putting on shows for their fans.   The band consists of Sam Pollock – Georgetown, Ky, Kevin Rawlings – Lexington, Ky, Kerry Elliott – Paris, Ky, Chris Gordon – North Middletown, Ky and Frank Conrad of Lexington, Ky.

People love the energy and the rich tone of his vocals and compare him to an older style country with a new / modern sound.

Personal Life

Outside of his professional and music career, Eskridge has several interests, including classic cars, motorcycles, the great outdoors and skiing. He and his wife Juli have four children, Jessi Eskridge, Jerad Eskridge, Malina Gaworski and Iza Gaworski. 

The Eskridge’s are proud supporters of Morehead State University and the Seena Magowitz Pancreatic Cancer Foundation.
