TJ Broscoff’s “Ready To Fly” album flourished on Texas radio with five singles reaching well inside the top 30 on the Texas Music charts. The stories on the album were true and described his struggle with his demons and his readiness to put it all behind him and move forward. To everyone’s delight, his life and his determination to be a class artist ran parallel on a road to success. After the success of “Ready to Fly”, TJ was ready with a whole new set of stories and observations that he knew he was ready to share. “The Break” was recorded and produced in the same studio that had brought forth his last project with Bill Green at the board and is as solid as a rock. With broader instrumentation and intelligent lyrics, “The Break” stands as a natural successor to its freshman counterpart, “Ready To Fly”.

Both of these projects are proof that musical ideas can be new and fresh and can also be coupled with lyrical content that does not insult the listener’s ability to understand more than a backroad and a tailgate. In two words you can describe TJ and his music: smart and talented. TJ is a true Texas Music phoenix. He rose up from one of the worst possible situations that he could have been in to succeed in his own uncompromising terms. Playing his music in nearly 200 shows a year proves that he was ready to fly and that all he needed was the break. Enjoy TJ Broscoff if for no other reason, he is smart and talented.

NASHVILLE, TN – FEBRUARY 8, 2017 —  Country music star and Texas native, Wade Bowen has partnered with former band mate Doug McReaken and Russell Keller to open The Caboose BBQ, a new restaurant in the heart of Alvin, TX.  Bowen will be on hand to mix, mingle, serve and play a couple tunes during the grand opening festivities on February 17, starting at 4:00 pm.  Josh Grider will serve as the evenings musical entertainment.
Bowen is now an award-winning and highly respected singer/songwriter with his ninth studio album due out later this year. He’s played the Americana Music Association festival, has been a staple on the Texas country circuit for almost two decades and countless other festivals around the country in addition to recent co-headline shows with fellow Texans Randy Rogers in the US and Willy Braun (Reckless Kelly) in the UK.  But Bowen started out playing his very first live gig at a BBQ joint.  October 18, 1998 at the now defunct Stubb’s BBQ in Lubbock, with McReaken playing keys in his band West 84.  The Texas Tech students knew then that there was a strong connection between great BBQ and country music.  It was after an event hosted at the home of McReaken, who is now a well respected businessman in Alvin,TX employing 700 employees across 7 companies, where the idea for The Caboose BBQ was formed.  Bowen had performed, and McReaken’s competitive Cookoff Team called “Wasted Days” catered the event, once again bringing together the two friends, music and BBQ.

With over 200 competitors in each event, teams  have tremendous pressure to create unique and delicious meals by 2pm each day. Instead of judges, we  are looking forward to taking on the challenge of satisfying the town of Alvin and its surrounding communities  at The Caboose.”

A Houston native, Josh’s earliest musical exposure was to old gospel hymns he sang in church. As a teenager riding in the high school Rodeo Circuit he discovered the likes of Willie, Waylon, Merle, Jones and Strait. Those musical legends inspired him to pick up a guitar and start singing in the parking lots of his rodeo events. Encouraged by his reception at the rodeos, he put his first band together and began paying his dues at the local honky-tonks in 2003.

Josh Ward released his 2nd album “Promises” in June 2012. The first single “Get Away” reached #18 on the Texas Regional Radio Chart – almost unheard of for a debut artist. Josh’s second single “Rainout Hangout” quickly moved up the Texas and Regional Radio charts – reaching Top 5 status. The third single “Sent Me You”, a ballad written by Scott Brown (Scooter Brown Band), gave Ward his very first Number 1 on both the Texas Regional Radio Report & The Texas Music Chart in April 2013. He followed with another #1 on his 4th single, “Promises” in Sept 2013. “Hard Whiskey” was released in November 2013 and reached #1 on the Texas Regional Radio Report and #3 on the Texas Music Chart. Following the success of “Promises”, Josh Ward, released his third studio album “Holding Me Together” October 30, 2015. Produced by Grammy Award Winning producer, Greg Hunt, at Rosewood Studios in Tyler, TX. Ward’s latest album features 10 new tracks from the 2013 Texas Regional Radio New Male Vocalist of the Year. Josh Ward has stayed true to his country roots with his most current project. Ward’s 3rd album has already seen four number one singles with “Highway”, “Whiskey & Whitley”, “Somewhere Between Right & Wrong”, and “Broken Heart” bringing his record to Seven consecutive number one hits. Josh Ward recently brought home the Texas Regional Radio Music Awards Song of the Year 2016 for “Whiskey & Whitley”.
