Texas country singer-songwriter Kevin Fowler took a couple of years to take stock of his artistic career, launch his own record label, then write and record How Country Are Ya? the old-fashioned way. Fowler’s seventh studio album is the good-timing, tradition-steeped and honky-tonk-stomping Amarillo native’s return to basics effort. His 2016 follow-up album Coming to a Honky Tonk Near You featured his popular singles “Texas Forever,” a musical homage to the Lone Star State, and “Sellout Song,” which pokes fun at modern country music. However, the point behind each lyric, guitar lick, and twanging-rocking melody is the live show. Fowler has earned his reputation as one of the most amped-up concert performers to emerge from the modern day Texas country movement. Fowler stuck to his roots with his latest single “ Beach Please” with his twangy honky tonk sound and catchy lyrics. For those that have experienced Fowler onstage, then you know he brings unbridled musical muscle to the platform. He’s a dynamo – cracking jokes, hitting high notes, strumming his guitar and putting each of his fans in two-stepping mode. Fowler brings his iconic Texas demeanor and classic performances plus the new and warming “Big Cabo Fest” ( duo with Roger Creager) to MusicFest.
