Bob Woodruff- That Was Then

And the MP3 was up back then, too.

It turns out that there are at least two men named Bob Woodruff. One is a journalist for ABC who sustained life-threatening injuries in Iraq and is front page news today. There's also a first-rate country music artist by that name. He has only two releases, Dreams & Saturday Nights from 1994 and 1997's Desire Road. Both out-of-print albums are filled with tough songs about barrooms, broken hearts and forgotten dreams. Unlike his namesake at ABC, Woodruff never achieved great acclaim. He's too country for the "alt" crowd, and is too gritty for commercial country radio. I fear that the country Bob Woodruff may have stumbled into the same hard-luck obscurity that's befallen the character in "That Was Then."
