In May, when Wade Bowen last stopped by Radio Texas, LIVE! he couldn't even pretend to mask his excitement for his next album... well don't look now, but it has a release date.

His seventh album will be self-tilted, and will be unleashed on October 28. Of the project Bowen says, “The focus was to talk about what I’ve been through. – to get personal. Everything I’ve been through lead me to this.”

During his May visit, Wade played a brand new song for us called My California, a song about his wife. Give it a listen:

Wade kicks off his #BeatMeDown tour with his pal, Sean McConnell, today in Chico, California.
