Kevin Fowler was born in Amarillo, Texas in 1966 and is a country recording artist. Besides his own successes, Fowler has written hit singles for other country artists such as Sammy Kershaw, Mark Chesnutt, and Montgomery Gentry. Fowler credits his father to introducing him to country music when he was a child. By the time he was a teenager Fowler began experimenting with rock music. At the age of twenty, Fowler moved to Los Angeles and enrolled in the Guitar Institute of Technology.

After graduating guitar school, Fowler moved to Austin, Texas and joined the rock band, Dangerous Toys. By the mid-1990s, Fowler had broken away to form his own rock band, Thunderfoot. However, by 1998, Fowler's musical direction had come full circle back to his country roots as he formed a new country music band and began playing locally in Austin.

Fowler self-released his 2000 debut album, “Beer, Bait, and Ammo,” which caught the attention of fellow musicians, Mark Chesnutt and Sammy Kershaw, who began playing covers of Fowler's songs.

Fowler was snapped up by Clint Black's independent record label, Equity Music, which issued his 2004 album “Loose, Loud & Crazy” and his 2007 album, “Bring it On.” Soon after the album was released, the label folded.

2010 saw Fowler sign with Lyric Street Records, and release “Beer Season.” However, it wasn't long before Lyric Street Records also closed its doors and Fowler became property of the Disney Music Group. 2010 also saw Fowlers song, “Pound Sign” peak at #34 on the Billboard Country Songs chart. That same year saw a collaboration with country rap artist Colt Ford on the track, “Hip Hop in a Honky Tonk.” 2011 marked Fowler's signing to Ford's label, Average Joe's Entertainment. That same year came the hit single “Girl in a Truck.” Fowler's sixth studio album, “Chippin' Away,” emerged in 2011 on Average Joe's Entertainment.
