Bob Nolan (April 13, 1908 - June 16, 1980) was a Canadian-born singer, songwriter, and actor. Born Clarence Robert Nobles on April 13, 1908 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, at the age of thirteen he moved to live with his father, Harry, in Tucson, Arizona. Harry had changed his name to Nolan and it was as Bob Nolan that he began a career as a singer. In 1933, with Leonard Slye (Roy Rogers) and Tim Spencer, he became a co-founder of the singing group the Sons of the Pioneers for which he was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1980.
