This came to a shock to me I don't know the whole story, but I got word that this is serious. Here is all the information I was given by someone who worked for Rockett.

We regret to report that during the early morning hours of September 4th, Bart Rockett was kidnapped at gun and knife point while on a business trip in Las Vegas, Nevada. During this assault he was beaten and robbed and held against his will. Besides the expected bruises and swelling, his jaw was broken in two places. He was flown back to Springfield and is currently awaiting surgery to fix his jaw.

His recovery status is unknown at this time. All shows have been cancelled until further notice. Your thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated during this very difficult time.

Visit our official website: bartrockett.com and click on fan page and my blog for up the the minute updates on this situation.

My family and I have been fortunate to see Bart several times, both in Branson and in Gulf Shores, AL, and was able to visit with him at length following a couple of his shows. He is such a nice guy and a gifted performer.

I hate to see this happen to anyone, especially someone of his caliber. I wish him my best for a speedy recovery. From the blog, it sounds like he is in good spirits, and I am sure he will be back performing before long.

I had the chance to meet Bart one morning at his place in Gulf Shores. Very nice guy. Haven't had a chance to catch his show, but several friends have told me it was really good. Sorry to hear the news, and certainly wishing him the best for a full recovery.

Does anyone have an address?? I think he could use some cheering up .. what a terrible situation. I've never met Bart .. but, he's one of us and we should let him know we care.

If you're reading this buddy, I hope you a speedy recovery.

I hate to sound rotten but I wonder where Mr. Rochet was in Vegas. I have searched the Vegas news sites and have not found any info other than Branson sites which base their news from Mr. Rochet' website. I hope he makes a speedy recovery.

There are probably enough kidnappings in Las Vegas that one more wouldn't make the news. Smile

His name is "Rockett", by the way and, yes, that is his REAL name...
