Bart began taking songwriting seriously while at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas, as he took his first real steps as a performer. Bart went for it with the single-minded energy of the true believer, and before long, a friend booked him for an acoustic show at The Agave Bar, next to City Limits in Stephenville. It was a huge turning point, the pivot between his native Maypearl, a farm town of less than a thousand, forty miles southwest of Dallas, and Austin, the hub around which Texas music spins. Bart then joined a band, playing regularly every weekend by his senior year, including a stint opening for Kyle Hunt that he still cites as one of his best learning experiences. He juggled day jobs and music for a time, then left once and for all for Austin with his soon-to-be wife Brooke. Bart worked part-time day jobs during the week and hit the road every weekend. Gradually the pieces fell into place. With each CD, airplay and word-of-mouth Bart has built his career one fan at a time.
