“Bobbie Ann Mason” is a song written by Mark D. Sanders, and recorded by American country music artist Rick Trevino. It was released in May 1995 as the second single from the album Looking for the Light. The song reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and at number 6 on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart.
The song is an uptempo, in which the narrator discusses his high school crush, Bobbie Ann Mason. Songwriter Mark Sanders has written that he was inspired to choose the name “Bobbie Ann Mason” for the character in the song because he loved the books In Country and Shiloh and Other Stories by the novelist Bobbie Ann Mason. Sanders wrote that he later received a phone call from Mason, and commented, “It turned out that she was a little put off that I used her name in the song, but I think she got over that.”
