Six-Song Where Phones Don’t Work EP Set for Release This Friday,
November 19 via Thirty Tigers
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Texas troubadour Wade Bowen debuted the official music video for his latest single, “When Love Comes Around,” today with CMT ahead of its official release tomorrow, Nov. 18, with the release of his six-song EP, Where Phones Don’t Work, to follow this Friday, Nov. 19. Watch the video via CMT HERE and pre-order/pre-save the EP HERE.
The feel-good visual accompaniment of the uplifting song offers a reminiscent journey through a life full of love, anchored by the physical tokens that take us back in time mentally. Filmed in Nashville, the video directed by Brian Vaughan serves as another heartening representation of the positive impact Bowen hopes to have with the forthcoming EP.
“There’s a new sense of hope and a new sense of urgency with this music. I’m just so inspired again,” notes Bowen. “That was the whole point of this project — I want to lift people up. I want to make them feel good.”
The project marks the first solo endeavor in three years for the man Music Row praises as “perennially popular,” noting that he “can always be counted on for country excellence,” while awarding him the “Disc of the Day” award upon the recent release of “When Love Comes Around.” Billboard also honored the song among its best of the week, noting that “two decades into his music career, Bowen retains a newcomer’s energetic fervor, melded with his signature blend of sounds from across the wide spectrum of Texas music.”

About Wade Bowen
Twenty years and some 4,000 shows into his career, the name Wade Bowen has become synonymous with authentic Country music– and for good reason. An artistic descendant of American icons like Guy Clark, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Robert Earl Keen and more, Bowen is a contemporary link in a Texan chain of roots-rock poets stretching back more than 50 years – yet his ambition never ended at the state line.
Seen as one of the genre’s finest and most genuine modern voices, Bowen’s approach stays rooted in tradition, but also stands on the creative cutting edge. His focus remains on writing unique songs with a literary quality and shifting his sonic territory to match his life, as evidenced by his uplifting new single, “When Love Comes Around,” off his forthcoming EP, Where Phones Don’t Work, available everywhere November 19 (Thirty Tigers).
Wielding a knack for direct, poetic songwriting that never panders, Bowen matches his gravel-road growl to an organic sound spanning the whole of Texas and beyond, tapping both country and rock influences. A dozen albums have shown his sonic diversity – including six studio sets, two live collections, a gospel album and an ongoing series of buddy-country hits with fellow Texan, Randy Rogers. Along the way, he’s scored hits and accolades based on quality, not quantity, and continues to perform around 200 nationwide shows each year – including multiple appearances on the venerated Grand Ole Opry stage.
