My Country Life - Episode 7: Robert Mizzell, part two
American-born Robert Mizzell from Shreveport, Louisiana, is now one of Ireland’s biggest country music stars in his own right and as a member of The Three Amigos with Patrick Feeney and Jimmy Buckley.
Here in part two of his life story, Robert tells Eddie Rowley how he achieved success on the Irish country scene after working in a string of jobs, from selling “mops and buckets” to insurance and pensions.
He remembers working as a bouncer at a Boyzone concert and reveals that Louis Walsh turned him down as a manager. And he tells how he performed as a contestant on Gerry Ryan’s Let Me Entertain You TV talent show along his rocky road to success.
Robert also remembers his last poignant recording with his father, Richard, who died from Covid in January 2021.
And he reveals the romantic story of finding true love with his wife Adele.
