Wade Bowen is one of the first names that come to mind when asked, 'What is Texas & Red Dirt music' -- his songs are known by heart all across the state, and when he comes to town, the hall is packed full of avid TXRD fans. He is one of the best in the industry, his songs reflecting so many of our Texas lives and thoughts. Listen to him discuss his beginnings in the music industry, enjoying the road, being on stage, and all the hard work it took to get to where he is now. Wade Bowen thinks "that is what music needs right now .. to play music for the right reasons."
