Wade Bowen is getting ready to release a brand new album, October 28th. Today Sean Ericson and myself get the chance to review the first single from that album titled, "When I Woke Up Today".

Wade told us a couple months back that this new music would be grittier and have more edge than some of his past music.If this song is any indication, he's right! "When I Woke Up Today" jumps right out at you and seems to say "drivin' with the top down, summer, sing along song!" Sean Ericson says "nobody can make a melancholy song sound more fun." Wade Bowen once told me that he was a serious kind of guy, and he is for the most part, but I sense that he's letting his hair down with this one. Nice fresh Wade Bowen! Be the first to hear a snippet right now!
