The Official Home of Rowdy Johnson
Rowdy Johnson is an American Outlaw Country Music Singer/Songwriter and Entertainer steeped in tradition and authenticity. As REAL as it gets. Born and raised in Apopka, Florida with a chip on his shoulder and songs in his heart, Rowdy quickly found that he had a gift for expressing himself through lyrics and song.
Never bowing to labels and with the desire to blaze his own path, it's allowed Rowdy to take all his influences and roll them into what Rowdy Johnson music is all about, complete musical freedom. And speaking of Freedom, Rowdy proudly served in United States Navy in his early years and has since became the voice of our American Armed Forces and a strong advocate for his fellow Veterans.
Formed in late 2007 out of Tucson, Arizona, the Rowdy Johnson Band burst on the scene quickly due to their original songs and sound. No one did it like RJB. On the stages all throughout Arizona, most notably Tombstone, RJB began to spread their wings and hone their craft. In the “Town Too Tough To Die”, Rowdy became a Legend and it didn’t take long for the word to spread. Somewhere between the unmistakable Outlaw sounds of Waylon, Willie and Classic Old School Honky-Tonk, that’s where you’ll find Rowdy Johnson; carrying on the tradition while writing and performing his own songs.
Rowdy Johnson Band released 3 full length albums/CDs to date including “Outlaws Today”, “America’s Best” and "Hillbilly Rock Star" featuring 36 amazing songs that pack a serious punch and are even better Live. Having shared the stage with some of Music’s most iconic performers including Merle Haggard, John Anderson, David Allan Coe, Charlie Daniels, Molly Hatchet, Bellamy Brothers, Gary Allan, Trace Adkins, Shooter Jennings, Whiskey Myers, Jackson Taylor & The Sinners, Dallas Moore, Creed Fischer, Whey Jennings, Jason Boland & The Stragglers, .38 Special, Gretchen Wilson, Sawyer Brown, Big & Rich, Jackyl, Grand Funk Railroad and Steppenwolf just to name a few, the Rowdy Johnson has been there, done that and got the scars & t-shirts.
Seems this “Unwanted Man” is wanted more than ever these days as Rowdy embarks upon his solo career with the release of “The Nordic Recording Sessions". On these recordings, Rowdy flexes his songwriting muscle with "This Biker's Vest" and most notably by having some of his Rowdy Friends such as Dallas Moore and Billie Gant join him on a couple of Rowdy’s original songs, “Ain’t No Outlaw” and “You Ain’t No Coe”. Not to mention, the unforgettable duet between Rowdy and his wife Kathy on
“I’ll Go First”.
And as if that wasn’t enough, Rowdy joined his dear friend and Producer extraordinaire, Deano Engebretson on a Rock & Roll collaboration “Voodoo Highway”. With Deano providing the masterful musical tracks, Rowdy wrote and sang the lyrics with the power and thunder one would expect from a Hillbilly Rock Star.
The beard's a little longer and a whole lot more grayer. These days Rowdy is at home somewhere in the Carolinas living the dream with his family, but you can still catch him him doing what he does best and that's singing them songs he wrote to Rowdy Friends far and wide. Be sure to keep your eye on the tour dates and catch Rowdy Johnson with his trusty Haunted Guitar in hand at a venue near you if you can.
