Wade Bowen has become a favorite artist of mine. Those guys down there in Texas have really got something cool going on. They play what I would consider the most country music available today. All the guys and gals down there making Texas Music are wonderful. Here is the new one from Wade Bowen.
West Texas Rain – Wade Bowen
In fact, I think this one is number one on the Texas Music Chart this week and it’s easy to see why. Wade takes you through his life in this song. What is more country than that?
I imagine that you’ve been through some of the things in this song. And if you haven’t been through these exact things you can feel the emotion and it gets you thinking about all the choices you’ve made and the ones you didn’t make that you should have made.
We’re all a product of our choices in life. We’re all shaped by what we do and we try to just come out on the side that keeps us even and happy in life. But there are definitely bumps on the road along the way. You just hope that you don’t do too many wrong things and you try to love those that you come in contact with.
That’s the idea anyway. And it’s covered perfectly in this song. The melody is catchy. It’s that laid back kind of song, but you can still groove to it and you can easily slow dance to it if you’re out at the honky tonk.
