Libbi Bosworth (born in Galveston, Texas) is an Americana and alt-country singer-songwriter and recording artist from south Texas who rose to prominence in the mid 1990s.

Libbi was raised in a musical environment. Her father was a trucker who moonlighted as a honky-tonk singer, and her mother worked at an area country music station. Libbi left home at the age of 16 to pursue a music education and career. [1]

In her formal education Bosworth trained with rock and jazz at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. She also performed in a punk band early on.

After returning to Texas, she returned to her country roots music style as well. In 1995 she broke into national radio airplay with her contributions from two compilation albums, Austin Country Nights and True Sounds of the New West. On the albums, Bosworth performed "East Texas Pines" and a duet with Dale Watson, "After the Fire Is Gone."

In 1997, she released her debut album, Outskirts of You. That year she also reached a wide audience when in 1997 she made her singular appearance on the PBS music television program Austin City Limits which spotlighted some "Best of Austin" performers. [2]
