Red Dirt Country Entertainer Jimmy Bowen is now accepting bookings for his highly energetic multi-genre music show. The production features Bowen’s unique and diverse style of music reflecting his Country, Americana, Gospel, and Bluegrass roots and musicianship that is over-the-top as his band are his former bandmates that toured with country superstar Earl Thomas Conley for over 35 years.
Bowen recently released his new single, “Don’t Drink The Water.” The upbeat classic country tune was written by veteran award-winning songwriters J.P. Pennington (Exile) and Jeff Stevens. It was produced by Bowen, Donnie Clark (Pure Prairie League), and Craig Fletcher, and was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Tony Cottrill. The song has been garnering attention from industry professionals and fans alike, being named one of CD TEX’s Top 10 Most Popular Broadcast Downloads upon release. It is currently in rotation with Radio SoBro, Texas Music Radio Show, and True Texas Radio. Listen here.
“Don’t Drink The Water” is the perfect two-steppin’ country and western song that taps into Bowen’s bluegrass roots. Boasting a traditional sound reminiscent of Buck Owens, the beautifully blended high harmonies, the nostalgic sound of a pedal steel guitar, and twin fiddles take listeners on a musical journey back in time and will have them singin’ and dancin’ along.
Bowen just wrapped up production on Season 5 of his own live TV music series, Jimmy Bowen & Friends. Each season of the show hosted by Bowen consists of thirteen half-hour episodes featuring Bowen performing live with his band and a special guest artist each week. It is syndicated nationwide and produced by award-winning production company CJM Productions, whose shows are broadcast in over 200 million homes in the USA as well as the UK and New Zealand.
