Kicking it at the Rio
Kick the “stuff” off your boots and come on down to the Rio Brazos Music Hall. The Steaks are hot and the entertainment is hotter.
Kevin Fowler highlights January. Kevin describes his music as, “…country with a bad attitude. It’s country with an edge. It’s just beer-drinkin’, hell-raisin’, good-time music.” And anyone who has ever been to a Kevin Fowler show knows it’s entertaining, high-energy fun.
Kevin also brings his tongue-in-cheek humor and captivating country storytelling. Kevin’s music causes his standing-room-only audiences to sing along: “Beer, Bait and Ammo,” “Cheaper to Keep Her,” “The Best Mistake I Ever Made,” “Don’t Touch My Willie” or any of the other songs that keep him on top of the Texas music charts.
An Amarillo boy, Kevin believes he was put on this earth to write songs and entertain people. His path to fame has traveled though West Texas A&M in Canyon, Los Angeles and now home in Austin. Now, Kevin says, “We’re just tryin’ to spread the gospel of Hank Williams and honky tonks to the rest of the world.”
The Rio Brazos Music Hall provides the perfect honky tonk to share good times.
January rounds up artist like Austin Allsup, Walt Wilkins, Reckless Kelly Helms, Brandon Rhyder and Davin James.
Heck, it’s a new year. Don’t worry about the stuff on your boots, just come on down and dine, dance and don’t worry!
