Bowman has penned No. 1 hits for Brooks & Dunn and Kenny Chesney, and his songs have been recorded by Don Williams, Lee Ann Womack, Jake Owen, and, most recently, he had four songs on Marcus King’s Grammy-nominated record El Dorado. He also has three tracks on Chris Stapleton’s multi-Platinum album Traveller, including the ACM Song of the Year single “Nobody to Blame.”

A bluegrass household name, Bowman has been awarded International Bluegrass Music Association Male Vocalist of the Year three times, and has twice earned the IBMA Album of the Year (Carrying The Tradition and Cold Virginia Night.)
