A FACSCINATING JOURNEY TO A MUSICAL FUTURE: Adopted as a baby to a family in Calgary Alberta, Bobby Wills didn’t know what an impact his DNA would have on his life path. "My (adopted) dad was a huge country music fan," he says, "but no one ever played music in my family growing up.” Having gotten a taste of the thrill of performing during an open mic while traveling in Australia, upon returning home Bobby connected with his biological family and could not have anticipated the artistic genealogy he was a part of, including five siblings and a musical streak a mile wide running throughout the family. Staying up all night listening to records upon meeting his biological father, it was then that Bobby realized ‘This is in my blood. This isn't just a crazy dream I had; this is part of who I am.' Many moons later, Wills is a shining star in the Country music scene, balancing his two loves, family and music.
