ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brian Gowan was raised in Temple, Texas under the influence of country music superstars Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and George Strait.

Even at an early age Brian discovered he had a gift for words. He began filling up his notebooks with songs and ideas. This pattern of "distraction" continued all the way through college. "Maybe if I had taken better notes in class I'd be a doctor or scientist now, but I guess it worked out all right." Brian moved to Nashville in 1988 to go to Belmont University. "It's a miracle I graduated from college, like so many other music business majors I was out working in the business most of the time. I missed a lot of class." Gowan interned at CBS Records, Capitol Records, and Tour Management Booking to name just a few. The internship at Tour Management Booking led to an introduction to Vin Maddox who was handling the merchandising account for Waylon. "Vin needed someone to go down to Texas and sell merch for Waylon. He was playing at Billy Bob's; I jumped at the chance and wound up doing that for a little over a year. I'd shut the stand down and watch the show every time I could."

Before he even received his diploma from Belmont University, he had signed his first publishing deal with Evanlee Music. "Kent Blazey, owner of Evanlee Music and writer of numerous hits for Garth Brooks, Clay Walker and many other acts took me under his wing. He taught me how to write commercial songs." To make ends meet Brian had to supplement his publishing draw. "I worked for a pressure washing company that had the Postal Service contract. I bet I washed every postal truck in Nashville rain or shine, sleet or snow. The water tank in the truck would be iced on top and we'd still be out there trying to clean them"

Producer Chuck Howard (LeAnn Rhimes, Hank Williams Jr., Trick Pony) approached Brian about signing a publishing deal at Tower Street/ EMI music. "The first thing Chuck Wanted to do was send me back to Texas to play with my band. I'd go back to Nashville once a month to write songs and drive back to Texas to play as many clubs and dancehalls as I could." In 1995 Chuck paired Brian with Blake Weldon, another Texas boy, and signed them to Curb Records as a duo (Blake & Brian) where they enjoyed two top forty singles as well as having the opportunity to record a song with Brian's heroes Waylon Jennings and Charlie Daniels. The duo disbanded in 1999.

"The only thing I knew to do was go back to Texas and play, keep the wheels moving, keep writing songs and make as much noise as I can." His songs reflect the life experiences he has under his belt and the maturity of someone who has paid his dues...in some cases more than his share. His first independent solo CD "Warm Spanish Wine" has produced one top ten, two top twenty and one top thirty singles on the Texas Music Chart.

CD Baby


Brian Gowan brings everything to the Country Rock table that a feasting fan could want: thick baselines, plump beats a juicy story and full-bodied melodies, all wrapped up with the Texas spirit. His songs range from driving, energizing rockers to slow, mellow ballads, beautifully poignant and nostalgic. Whatever style or emotion it is that Gowan approaches, he has a way of bringing out the heart and soul, the elements that don't escape any listener, country fan or not. There is an unmistakable presence and conviction in his album, "Warm Spanish Wine"; but considering that he's recorded with the likes of Waylon Jennings and Charlie Daniels, that shouldn't come as any surprise. A top notch Country pick right here, folks.

Another GREAT Texan!
I'm beginning to think ALL Great Country singers come from Texas! You are AWESOME! Much continued success!

A really great album
One of those rare CDs with no filler. I have been listening to it since it arrived and am anxious to find more music from Brian Gowan.
