      EVENT DETAILS
      Wade Bowen

      with Dalton Domino
      According to The New York Times, Wade Bowen is an earnest and direct singer who wrings feeling from a small vocal gestures and whose songwritingis graceful, with a twists like small sighs.Growing up in Waco, Bowens exposure to the music of Texas was limited to whatever made it on FM country radio. George Strait was king. Guy Clark was a name hed not have recognized before getting to college. But at school, in Lubbock, he discovered the full spectrum of Texas artistry, starting with Robert Earl Keen. He was a big changing point in my life, says Wade. I realized by listening to him that there was way more out there than I ever knew. So I started getting into Guy Clark and other great Texas music. But I was obsessed with Robert Earl. When we started the band we were sort of a Robert Earl cover band.That band was called West 84, and they found that with their large posse of friends whod always show up for a good time, it was easy to land gigs. Bowen meanwhile began to channel a lifelong love of writing into songs, and when college ended he made two major decisions. He took on the role of solo artist, and he moved to Austin. By then, about 2001, fellow Waco native Pat Green had busted out to national prominence and the Texas music phenomenon was the buzz of Nashville. It was part of Wade Bowens inspiration to charge ahead.Try Not To Listen is the album Wade regards as his true debut, the project that kicked off a life and living made of 200-plus nights a year on the road and patient grassroots fan development. Then with Lost Hotel in 2006, things really began to click. The opening track God Bless This Town reached No. 1 on the bellwether Texas Music Chart, and to date, Bowen has had a total of 10 Number 1's and 15 Top 5 Singles on the Texas Music Chart. He achieved another landmark in 2010, when he was invited to add his name to the roster of great artists whove made a Live At Billy Bobs CD/DVD combo at the iconic club in Fort Worth.
