Bob Gallion was born April 22, 1924 in Ashland, Kentucky. In the 1940s, he worked as a session guitar player before joining Stoney Cooper and Wilma Lee Cooper's band. Gallion recorded for MGM Records in the 1950s, releasing the singles "That's What I Tell My Heart" and "You Take the Table and I'll Take the Chairs". In September 1959, he joined the promotion staff at Acuff-Rose Music.

Moving to Hickory Records in 1960, he charted five more singles, including the top 10 hits "Loving You (Was Worth This Broken Heart" and "Wall to Wall Love". Gallion worked as a disc jockey for WGUN in Atlanta Georgia, then returned to recording in 1968 with the single "Pick a Little Happy Song" on United Artists Records. He also toured with Pati Powell and performed at the WWVA Jamboree, and charted one last time with the duet "Love by Appointment". After this song, Gallion retired as a performer and worked at a booking agency.
