The King of Kids Cowboy Music!
Cowboy crooner Buck Howdy is the nexus of Roy Rogers, Will Rogers and Mr. Rogers . . . and whether you refer to his guitar pickin'' and singin'' as cowboy, country, western, folk, family or children''s music, Buck is the most innovative recording artist to mosey on down the trail in ages!
Recently Howdy signed with a major television studio to develop a Buck Howdy television series.
Buck''s first album, Skidaddle!, is on the MCA Nashville label, one of the most prominent country music labels in the world, with a roster of legendary artists, including George Strait, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, Trisha Yearwood and Lee Ann Womack. He has also released a holiday cd CAROLS BY CAMPFIRE.
Buck also hosts Cow Pie Radio, which airs three times weekly on XM Satellite radio and on dozens of local stations in Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, New Hampshire, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
Howdy has performed at the Grand Ole Opry and twice at the White House as well as in hundreds of concerts at state fairs, performing arts centers and schools from coast to coast.
When not performing, Buck runs cattle and raises turkeys on his 100 acre spread, Buttercup Farm, in Virginia''s Shenandoah Valley, with his wife, Mrs. Howdy; kids, Li''l, 9, and Moose, 7; dog, Bailey; and horse, Comet.
Buck was born wearing a cowboy hat and boots and was raised on his family''s ranch in Grants Pass, Oregon, with three brothers and two sisters. Buck got a guitar for Christmas when he was six-years-old.
Recalls Buck, "The entire family was musical. My dad was a rancher and a preacher but his real love was strumming his autoharp and singing." And when driving around the countryside, the entire Howdy clan sang along.
A true singing cowboy, Buck is no Johnny-come-lately to children''s music. He has performed his special brand of music for kids for a coon''s age in concerts, at county fairs and in classrooms. Matter of fact Buck''s first public appearance was in the third grade when he convinced his teacher to allow him to go "on tour" . . . from classroom to classroom.
Says Buck, "Children''s songs and cowboys go together like a horse and saddle. Gene Autry blazed a trail with his music but these days cowboy music with family appeal is harder to find than an udder on a bull!"
"I think cowboy music touches everybody, wherever they live," he continues. "Folks are hungry for songs that remind them of the gold ol'' days and want to share that with their kids. Cowboy songs are like musical chicken soup - or in my case, turkey soup! It''s good for what ails you! Whether I''m singing to kids and their folks or to the turkeys in my barn, there''s nothing I''d rather be doing."
