Hailing from Waco, Texas, Wade Bowen's love for country music stemmed from the conditions of his environment.
The home of the unique Red Dirt country movement, Waco's airwaves were flooded with Texas Country throughout his childhood.
Wade would be fixated upon Texas Country legends throughout his childhood, from Robert Earl to Guy Clark. These country legends
would have a long lasting and profound effect on Wade, with Wade eventually becoming the standard bearer for the modern Red
Wade Bowen's first major mark on the world would be left with his first major music project West 84. Fresh
out of college and filled with passion and aspiration, Wade jumped head first into the recording world trying to find his
big break. His first break would come in 2001, when he tried his luck as a solo artist and relocated to Austin, Texas. Hot
on the heels of fellow Wackite Pat Green, Wade Bowen began building a cult following in the Texas scene while touring on his
first debut album. Five years of sweat, blood, and tears later, the Bowen factor would reach critical mass and explode onto
the Billboards in 2006. By 2008 Bowen had become a household name within country music circles, and was being beamed onto
radio waves across the country with increasing regularity.
Wade Bowen's steady build to
stardom would begin in 2002 with the release of his debut album Try Not to Listen. The album would rock the local music scene
and serve as the genesis of his signature Texas Rock style. 2006's Lost Hotel, his much anticipated follow up sensation, featured
the #1 hit "God Bless This Town", invoking heartland themes and making Wade the patron saint of Christian-Texan nationalistic
pride. After years of hard work, he would also secure his right of passage at Fort Worth's Billy Bob's music club, the premier
music club for the Red Dirt rock movement. With three major albums and a recorded live show in the books, Wade was on the
cusp of a huge break.
That big break came in 2008, with his commercially and critically acclaimed album If We Ever Make
It Home. Spurred on by real life battles with depression within his family, If We Ever Make It Home was as hard hitting musically
as it was emotionally. The album would hit the #2 spot on Billboard's Top Heatseekers, and would be carried by popular singles
"Daddy and the Devil" and "Trouble". A guest spot from well known artist Chris Knight on the album would solidify Wade as
finally having made it into the big leagues.
Good news would come again in 2012, when Wade's album The Given dropped
and eventually climbed to the #9 spot on the US Country charts. The album would contain multiple gems, including "To Live
Is To Fly" and "Saturday Night", with the latter eventually climbing to the #39 position on the US Country single charts.
Wade was destined for success ever since he stepped on board with indie music publisher Sea Gayle Music,
who holds in their musical stables such household names as Brad Paisley and Jerrod Niemann.
Wade isn't the only Red
Dirt musician making waves around the country. Fellow Texan acts such as the Eli Young Band and Jack Ingram have also brought
their signature Texan accented musical style to audiences around the USA.
