Kevin Fowler delivered a brand new album called How Country Are Ya earlier this month, a collection that has the singer coming full circle. On his own Kevin Fowler Records, the set was produced by Ken Tondre and recorded from his home in Austin, Texas. Boasting 15 all-original tracks, the album taps into a creative energy he simply wasn't able to uncover through his previous record deals. Free from the constraints of mainstream radio and corporate executives, Fowler delivers one of the year's finest sets.

The album's title track and lead single recently went No. 1 on the Texas music chart, his 11th song to do so. Following this achievement, NashvilleGab caught up with the singer-songwriter to chat about this new chapter in his life, what it means to be a Texan and what fans can find on the record.

Kevin Fowler

Press release:
Kevin Fowler, one of Texas country’s most prolific artists, is
set to release his seventh studio album How Country Are
Ya?
on November 12 via Kevin
Fowler Records/Thirty Tigers.
 
Teaming up with producer
Ken Tondre, How Country Are Ya? was recorded in Austin
and features fifteen original tracks, all written by Fowler except
“Mousturdonus,” an instrumental written with his bandmates. Beginning with a
special intro from Earl Dibbles, Jr (Granger Smith’s “country
boy” alter-ego), to the slap-happy “Guitars and Guns” and reflective
biographical ballad “Panhandle Poorboy,” Fowler delivers a potent, raucous
collection of music that blends together seamlessly. The infectious
title track is the debut single and will be available on iTunes September 22,
but you can check out a sneak-peak by watching the lyric video
