Rowdy Decker is a growing force in country music in Texas.
Raised in the small town of Brock, Texas, Rowdy clings to the values learned growing up in a hard working rural community.
Rowdy’s musical journey began at a young age. He played the fiddle in the family bluegrass band and travelled to numerous festivals developing his talents.
In his teens, Rowdy began showing an interest in the guitar and songwriting. He still works hard at improving his craft. Rowdy says “Nothing worth having comes easy”. So he remains diligent in his pursuit of his dreams of success.
In 2017 Rowdy met Steve Stewart, a prominent figure in country music in Texas. They began working together and Stewart produced Rowdy’s first album “Stephenville” in Stewart’s recording studio in Weatherford, TX. The EP was released to much excitement in the north Texas region and is receiving lots of “spins” around Texas and through online outlets like iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and YouTube. The album contains four original songs Rowdy wrote or co-wrote and a cover of the Koe Wetzel / Parker McCollum song “Love”.
Rowdy put his band together in 2018 and has been performing live to audiences ranging from 50 to 250 people. He’s been asked to perform at many private events as well as fundraisers , bars and rodeos.
2019 has seen tremendous growth for Rowdy! A new single “My Grandaddy” was released in January to much acclaim. The Rowdy Decker Band was asked to play the Street Dance to kick off the 2019 and 2020 Parker County Sheriff’s Posse PRCA Rodeo in Weatherford, TX on June 6, 20129 and July 4, 2020. The band performed to close to 2,000 people each dance! The Band also headlined the Parker County Sheriff’s Posse Ranch Rodeo in 2020. Rowdy entered and was first runner up in the Stephenville Habitat for Humanity’s version of “The Voice”, performed at the Weatherford College Alumni Rodeo and played lots of new venues!
2019 also featured another single release of “What’s Left For Me”. An original song with insights of growing up in a small town only to watch it grow as well into a more populated area.
Plans for the release of the Rowdy Decker, Steve Stewart and Todd Stewart penned song “Nobody Told Me” were put on hold until the pandemic ends. A “test run” was conducted on Fort Worth’s “95.9FM The Ranch”. The song was entered into Ben Ryan’s local music showdown and won each night’s round to reach in the Local Music Showdown Hall of fame. We have great expectations for this song! It features playing by some of Texas’ most renowned musicians including: Todd Stewart and Les Lawless from the Randy Rogers Band, Lloyd Maines (Jerry Jeff Walker, the Dixie Chicks), Drew Womack (Sons of the Desert, solo career) and Steve Stewart (Janie Fricke, Dan Seals and solo career). Keep a look out and support the new single!
Keep an eye on Rowdy’s career. Great things are coming!
