Blane Howard is a country music artist and songwriter who is making the grade across the board with fans and country radio. His original song "Promise to Love Her" has generated more than 6 million video views across multiple platforms, and more than 6.7 million streams. An Arkansas native, recently named the 2018 Male Vocalist of the Year at the Arkansas CMAs, Blane embraces the sound he was raised on by infusing the styles of country music greats like Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn, and Randy Travis, with his own personal flair. His relatable lyrics, powerful vocals, and entertaining shows are winning him fans around the world.
At the age of 3, Blane stood in front of the TV with a blue and green plastic guitar and sang along with Alan Jackson's, "Chasin' That Neon Rainbow." A big fan of Johnny Cash, with whom he shares a birth date, Howard tells a story about his grandmother singing Cash songs to him and his cousins when they were little. Living close to a railroad track, she would rush all the kids to the window when they would “hear the train a coming” and break into her rendition of “Folsom Prison Blues." Blane often admits, that as a child he thought Cash stole the song from her! Today he is drawn toward the styles of artist like Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, and Brothers Osborne. All of these influences have made an impact on Blane's unique style of modern-traditional country, mixing the authenticity of the 90's with the contemporary edge of today!
