“Country is not just my music; country is my life.”
— Brad Howard
The western hills of North Carolina echoes through the twangy, southern style of Brad Howard. He grew up in the small town of North Wilkesboro, North Carolina. His dad was a fan of artists like Merle Haggard, Charley Pride, and Don Williams, which led Brad to listening to country radio on a regular basis. But it wasn't until he heard George Strait that he realized country music was his passion.
At eighteen he joined the Air Force and had to put his pursuit of music on hold for a few years. Brad relocated to the North Georgia area after leaving active duty. He started taking every opportunity to perform and hone his craft. After a few years he started writing his own material.
Brad finally decided to move to the Nashville area to be in the middle of the music scene. He begin performing all around the middle Tennessee area and soon branched out to out-of-state venues.
Brad has recorded three albums of original material and continues to receive airplay from stations that play indie artists. He has received multiple award nominations for his original material.
