Songwriter and Texas native Rob Redwine took some time out of his schedule to stop by the Bear's Den on Thursday and play a song for us.

Redwine was raised in Fort Worth with a steady diet of folk, rock and blues from a wide range of artists spanning the gamut from Bob Dylan to Memphis soul rockers Lucero.

Along with being a singer and multi-instrumentalist, he holds court with friends in the band Redwine & Roses, is an artist, poet and writer, having not only written a mess of songs but Redwine has also published a book called The Mind of a Wordsmith.

He frequently joins forces with 'Tips for Tuscaloosa' organizer Hope Cassity for songwriting sessions and she worked her magic and got him in the round for the August event. As soon as he hit town Thursday, he graciously stopped in to give us an exclusive acoustic performance of his song 'We All Sing Along' live in the Bear's Den!
