The Howdies

Mar 15, 2024

8:45pm – 9:15pm CT


The Howdies came together while swapping songs and passing bottles around an open fire. They like everything from Hank and Lefty to Waylon and Willie. They play both kinds of music, Country and Western. The six members of The Howdies each bring a unique musical background that combines to create a singular sound. Their Athens, GA home has long been an artistic haven for all genres of music and an open forum for shared expression. The result is a place where outsiders flourish and the rules of musical tradition are often bent or even broken with a wink and a smile. Produced by David Barbe and T. Hardy Morris and recorded at Chase Park Transduction, only Athens could create a group like The Howdies and a record like Howdies All Around. A little bit loose, a little bit homemade but overflowing with the love of friendship and the sheer joy of creating something new.
