Robert was born in Louisiana, the Bayou State and raised on the shores of Lake Bistineau near Shreveport.

At the age of 17, Robert moved to Connecticut where he worked with his father in the painting & decorating business. He then joined the US army where he served for a number of years. After his military service he moved to Ireland with dreams of a career in country music.
“Kick Ass Country” was Robert's first major hit, but it was “Say You Love Me” that made him a household name in Ireland. Other hits include “Gone, Gone, Gone”, “She's My Baby”, “”, “Mama Courtney” and “Two Rooms And A Kitchen”.
Robert has recorded many songs in his career, but two highlights where in 2010 when he released the hit single “Mama Courtney” (an original written by Henry McMahon), and also “Murder On Music Row” (a cover duet with top American Country Artist, Collin Raye). Both singles reached the Number 1 position on the European Country Music Chart during 2010 and remained in the chart for twenty weeks.
