Texas country artist Kevin Fowler is coming to Shooters in Texarkana to throw one big ole' honky tonk party on Saturday, April 16, 2016.

Fowler is putting the finishing touches on a brand new album and you can get a sneak preview of three new songs at his website right now. They include "Moving On," "He Ain't No Cowboy," and "Sellout Crowd" with Texas artist Zane Williams. Fowler said, "This song kind of spoofs today's pop sound in country music." A video is forthcoming as well as the album, which will make the eighth studio release of his career.

Fowler will be one of many Texas artists who will be appearing at the huge Texas Music Festival in Midland, Texas, known as the Crude Fest May 12-14, 2016. Fowler said this festival is equivalent to Woodstock but features just about every big Texas artist out there.

Recently, he was confused with another Kevin Fowler who is running for a political office in Rockwall, Texas, and joked, "People have too much dirt on me to be running as a politician."

Meanwhile, How Country Are Ya? is Fowler’s seventh studio album -- and his first for Kevin Fowler Records -- is a joint venture with Nashville’s Thirty Tigers. Steeped in Fowler tradition, a year in the making, the album features 15 fresh tunes. He wrote all of them except for the raucous instrumental “Mousturdonus.“

One of the most potent songs on is “Panhandle Poorboy,” a song that reflects the life and times of this Amarillo, Texan who has come full circle.

Pretty much any city in Texas belongs to Fowler, but he will immediately point out that he is quickly growing in popularity in Oklahoma and throughout the Midwest, all the way up to Chicago. In addition, Fowler boasts more than 371,000 Facebook likes and 40,300 very cool Twitter followers.

When Fowler is not on stage performing, he's more than likely fishing or hunting.  And when he finds the time he loves restoring old homes.

Here's the official video of "How Country Are Ya?"

Now it’s all about the camaraderie of friends, getting away, and the freedom of the outdoors as evidenced below.
