Wade Bowen Raises $150K for Texas Advocacy Center During Annual Concert and Golf Benefit
Wade Bowen, who will be in concert Wednesday night at Electric Cowboy, and his heart of gold was in full force earlier this month when he held his 14th Annual Wade Bowen Classic concert and golf tournament in his hometown of Waco. The event, which benefits the Advocacy Center for Crime Victims and Children, raised $150,000 over the course of a weekend.
Bowen and his friends — including Stoney LaRue, Jason Boland and the Stragglers, Casey James, Charlie Robison, Randy Rogers, Reckless Kelly, Eric Paslay, Dustin Lynch and Charlie Worsham — helped rack up a record-breaking amount for the special cause. Following the concert that drew in 3,000 fans to Indian Springs Park on May 6 and 7, the golf tournament was underway and 22 golfers hit the green, Bowen included.
And for those fans who think they have to wait another year to be entertained by their favorite singer, think again. Bowen will soon be releasing a brand new 10-song album titled ‘The Given,’ which will be available through digital retailers and select music stores on May 29. Pre-orders for the album are available now by visiting the Texan singer’s official website.
Bowen heads back out on the road this week with several Texas shows lined up before heading to Illinois, Missouri, Minnesota and Arkansas in June. His full tour schedule can be viewed here.
Bowen is also due for a stop at the KNUE Front Porch, be listening to the Mid-Day Show with Amy Austin for your final chance at an invite to that.
