Blane Howard – BIO (2/2022)

Arkansas native Blane Howard is putting his own personal stamp on the Nashville music industry. The singer-songwriter released his latest single, “Boot ‘N’ Rally,” written with Keesy Timmer (“Yeah, Boy”), on Feb. 2nd and a full-length album, Looking For Nothing To Do, followed on Feb. 25th. “Obviously the title of the song has multiple meanings, including the act of throwing up after you’ve had too much to drink, but the song reflects much more than that," commented Howard. "The song really is an anthem for those that have been knocked down but keep getting back up. No matter what life throws at you, whether hard times, injuries, or maybe a bad breakup, you have to keep moving forward and fight through it. There’s always light at the end of the tunnel. The whole album itself can be thrown into that category as well. I started working on this project pre-pandemic, and it took a long time to finish after suffering multiple delays due to the pandemic, but now it’s finally ready and I can’t wait for my fans to
hear it."

As an independent artist fighting against a couple of tedious years of Covid, Howard has continued to grow his fan base having consecutively doubled his Spotify numbers the last three years. In 2021, he accumulated over 1.2 million listeners, along with 6.2 million streams.
The single and album follow on the heels of two earlier releases, “All Those Empties,” a great summer tune written with Rick Huckaby (“Beer With Jesus,” “Muddy Water”), and “Rock On Her Window”, co-written with Huckaby and Doug Johnson (“Three Wooden Crosses,” “Love Like Crazy”), which made a splash last spring debuting at #5 on the CMT 12 Pack Countdown show. The music video, directed and produced by Jenny Gill, once again made an impression on CMT with Howard being selected as their Next Up Now artist for May 2021. The video also hit #1 on The Country Network in October.
Howard’s biggest success to date comes from a song he wrote as a wedding gift for his wife, Megan. Co-written with ACM Award winner Jordan Reynolds (“Tequila,” “10,000 Hours”) and produced by Grammy, ACM, and CMA nominated producer Brad Hill (Maren Morris’ Hero, Brothers Osborne), “Promise To Love Her” has grown into a massive success, garnering more that 110 million streams across all digital platforms, with the music video spending 17 consecutive weeks on CMT Music’s 12-Pack Countdown, including a week at Number 1. Quite impressive for an independent artist!

Recognized for his resonating baritone vocals and his presence behind a microphone, Howard also continues to hone his songwriting skills. He has collaborated with some exceptional writers; in addition to Timmer, Huckaby, Johnson, and Reynolds, he also has written with hit songwriters Steve Dean (“Watching You”), Jim Collins (“Big Green Tractor,” “The Good Stuff”), Graham Edwards (Avril Lavigne’s “Complicated”) and others.
In late 2020 with the NFL playoffs approaching, Howard received a boost of recognition. While his touring was halted during the pandemic, Howard, a life-long die-hard Kansas City Chiefs fan, wrote a new song, “Run It Back,” which became Chiefs Kingdom’s new anthem during their playoff run. The song was played by radio stations all over the Kansas City Metro area and on surrounding mid-west stations. With another successful season expected for the Chiefs in 2021, Howard created a REMIX, “Take It Back” which was just as successful as the original. “As the guy whose job it is to fire up the Chiefs crowd at Arrowhead Stadium, ‘Run It Back’ from Blane Howard fires ME up!! Fun song to celebrate the defending Super Bowl Champs (and favorite to win it AGAIN!!!),” - Dale Carter, KFKF-FM PD/Morning Guy and Stadium Voice of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Since graduating from Belmont University, Howard has opened for numerous country icons including Justin Moore, Blake Shelton, Josh Turner, Joe Nichols, Charlie Daniels, Lauren Alaina and Trace Atkins. He and his band are also popular on the state fair and festival circuit, with multiple returns to the State Fair of Texas, among others.
Named the Arkansas CMA Male Vocalist of the Year in both 2018 and 2019, Howard embraces his unique style of country, modern traditional, mixing the authenticity of the 90s with the contemporary edge of today! His relatable lyrics, powerful vocals, and entertaining shows are winning him fans around the world.
