Bobby Braddock grew up in Florida, traveled the South as a rock ’n’ roll musician, and became a songwriter in Nashville in the mid-1960s. Many of his songs, such as “D.I.V.O.R.C.E,” “Golden Ring,” “Time Marches On,” and “I Wanna Talk About Me,” are country music standards. “He Stopped Loving Her Today” has led most surveys as the best country song of all time. In 2001, he embarked on a new career as a producer, discovering singer Blake Shelton and making several #1 records with him. Bobby Braddock is the only living person to have written #1 country songs in five consecutive decades.
