Winter holidays have come and gone, school is back in session and summertime weather is still several months ahead. But have no fear! Wade Bowen is back in College Station and ready to share his latest and greatest country sounds once again.
Hurricane Harry’s will host the country artist Wade Bowen, along with Dalton Domino and a full band, on February 3. The artist recently kicked off his 2017 tour, lining up performances in cities across Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Georgia.
The country singer-songwriter was born and raised in Waco, Texas. He began his musical career with childhood friend Matt Miller in the band West 84. Bowen graduated from Texas Tech University before kicking off his solo career, and in 2002, Bowen released “Try Not to Listen” and performed over 200 live shows each year. Since then, the Texas native formed his own band and reached success with his album “If We Ever Make it Home” in 2008, rising on the Billboard country album charts to #28 for the first time in his career. Bowen’s latest solo record “Then Sings My Soul…Songs for My Mother” is a country-gospel album he created in March of 2016.
From Pat Green to Radney Foster, Wade Bowen has worked alongside many country musicians throughout the years. Back in 2015, Bowen and Randy Rogers created “Hold My Beer: Vol. 1,” which made Rolling Stone’s 40 Best Country Albums of the Year.
The duo’s latest sound is a live studio set titled “Watch This,” recorded and produced back in June of 2016.
Dalton Domino and the Front Porch Family men are known for their unique country beats, kicking up Red Dirt, Americana, Delta Blues, and Soul vibes. The lead singer’s career also kicked off in Lubbock, Texas, as he was inspired by artists like Josh Abbott, William Clark Green, and the very own Wade Bowen who got their start there. This is an up-and-comer you’ll want to keep your eye on.
Tickets are priced at $12 and can be purchased online, at Cavender’s Boot City, and Aggieland Outfitters on University Drive. Doors open at 9pm, and seating is first come first serve, so arriving early is best for a prime view. If you missed his show back in December, here’s your chance at February 3’s encore performance.
