Kevin Fowler might be a new name for you but he’s been tearing it up in Texas since the early 90’s and I think y’all need to used to hearing his name. In his seventh studio album and first for Kevin Fowler Records (a joint venture with Nashville’s Thirty Tigers) “How Country Are Ya?” the singer-songwriter took a couple of years to “take stock of his artistic career, launch his own record label, then write and record the old-fashioned way”.
Kevin’s ‘declaration of independence gives us “How Country Are Ya?” a good-timing, tradition-steeped and honky-tonk-stomping Amarillo native’s return to basics effort. A year in the making, the album features 15 fresh tunes (he wrote all of them except for the raucous instrumental “Mousturdonus“) and was produced by Ken Tondre, Fowler’s drummer, at Tondre’s The Compound Recording Studio in Austin.
