Singer/songwriter Bebo Norman to retire from music at the end of 2013

AMERICA's popular singer/songwriter Bebo Norman has announced that as of the end of 2013, he will officially retire from everything music. Said the songsmith, "For those closest to me, this really has been a decision that was years in the making, but after a lot of prayer and continued conversation, my wife Roshare and I made the final call back in December. And honestly I wasn't sure if I would be done right away, or what the exact timetable would be, but ultimately I decided that I really wanted to honour my label and publishing commitments through 2013 and tour this new record ('Lights Of Distant Cities') for at least a year from release just to make sure I 'finish well'. Everything that I had left in my heart for music, I feel like I squeezed out and emptied into writing and recording this latest project, which I love so dearly. And to have had the chance to write and record such a personal record with my close friend and longtime live collaborator, multi-instrumentalist Gabe Scott, was the perfect way to finish out my recording career." CR
