In 1975 Robyn began his professional career traveling the “road “ and performing at Nashville’s largest and most popular Night Clubs. Becoming the Featured Headliner, at not only his fathers club FARON YOUNG’S JAILHOUSE, but also the main attraction at GEORGE JONES POSSUM HOLLER . In the early 80’s ROBYN toured almost exclusively with his Dad. Opening shows for him all over the U.S. and Canada.


Over the years Robyn has appeared on numerous TV. shows .

One of Robyn's proudest moments was leading the campaign to see his father FARON receive his well deserved and, overdue place in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Thanks to a “ media blitz “ by ROBYN and the help of a few good friends, such as Brenda Lee and Merle Kilgore, the goal was achieved in 2000 when FARON YOUNG was finally recognized and inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. That's where he joined ROBYN’S great, great, grandfather UNCLE DAVE MACON.

NOTHING PLUS NOTHING
BRING ON THE LOVE
IT’S WHERE YOU DRAW THE LINE
YOU MENTION MY NAME IN YOUR SONG



Robyn's Latest CD is LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON - a Remembrance, which features 12 of his Fathers Greatest Hit’s.

AND, believe it or not, while Robyn's Dad, FARON YOUNG, was known to many as “The SINGING SHERIFF “. ROBYN actually WAS a REAL DEPUTY SHERIFF serving for almost 25 years in Nashville, Tennessee's Davidson County Sheriff’s Office while accomplishing
ALL of this .


No small feat indeed !
