Waco, TX native, Wade Bowen, will bring his red dirty country to Missoula for a live concert at the Top Hat on Saturday, September 7, 2019.
For nearly two decades, Wade has been creating a brand of country music that falls somewhere between country and rock — a style of music that one could liken to such greats as George Strait, Robert Earl Keen, Tom Petty and Mellencamp. His biggest influence though, is the late great Guy Clark.
Of Wade’s 11 albums, his most recent, Solid Ground, came out February 2018. Solid Ground is personal but not necessarily autobiographical, peppered with distinct south-of-the-border imagery of “Acuna,” and the nostalgic reflection of “So Long Sixth Street.” Rolling Stone spoke well of “Day of the Dead,” noting “the mariachi influence, with accordion, Spanish guitar and a horn section augmenting Bowen’s more familiar Red Dirt shuffle.” The combination is Bowen’s signature – Texas flavor strongly spicing his mix of country, blues, rock and Americana.
