Wade Bowen will release his debut single from his first BNA record this week. “Saturday Night” has officially gone for adds at country radio stations across North America today and showcases his songwriting ability and energy from his live shows. Seventeen stations have already been playing the track on its release.
“I wouldn’t be here today getting the opportunity to record for a major label if it weren’t for all those shows I played and for all those die-hard music fans at home coming out to see me,” said Bowen. “They are the reason I am being afforded this opportunity. When it comes to my intent as a musician, I’ve not changed anything since day one. I’ve only tried to mature and to get better, and I think ‘Saturday Night’ is representative of that.”
The album comes thirteen years after Wade’s debut at Stubb’s Barbeque in Lubbock, Texas. He has since played up to 200-dates per year, building up his grassroots support and fanbase. He’s had eight number ones on the Texas Music Chart, and he’s a multiple winner of awards including being named the 2009 Texas Music Awards’ Male Vocalist of the Year, and the 2010 Lone Star Music Awards’ Live Act Of The Year. While this is first major label debut, he has three albums under his belt and a live CD/DVD from a performance at Billy Bob’s Texas.
