Rowdy Johnson is an American Outlaw Country Music Singer/Songwriter and Entertainer steeped in tradition and authenticity.
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. With a name like Rowdy, it’s only fitting, and yes it is his real name!
Growing up down South with the sounds of so many greats such as Merle Haggard, Hank Williams Jr., Marshall Tucker Band, Johnny Cash & ultimately Waylon Jennings among countless others, it was easy to find his inspiration and a sense of freedom in the music.
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.
Speaking of Freedom, Rowdy served in United States Navy in his early years and has since became the voice of the American Military and a strong advocate for his fellow Veterans.
The Rowdy Johnson Band burst on the scene quickly due to their original songs and sound. 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”, RJB became Legend and it didn’t take long for the word to spread. Somewhere between the unmistakable Outlaw sounds of Waylon, Willie and Classic Southern Rock & Honky-Tonk, that’s where you’ll find Rowdy Johnson; carrying on the tradition.
Rowdy Johnson Band has released 3 albums/CDs to date including “Outlaws Today”, “America’s Best” and "Hillbilly Rock Star" featuring 36 amazing songs that pack a serious punch and 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, Gary Allan, Trace Adkins, .38 Special, Gretchen Wilson, Sawyer Brown, Big & Rich, Jackyl, Grand Funk Railroad and Steppenwolf just to name a few, the Rowdy Johnson Band has been there, done that and got the t-shirts.
Seems this “Unwanted Man” is wanted more than ever these days as Rowdy began his solo career in 2020 with two new EP releases “The Nordic Recording Sessions Vol. 1 & 2”. On these recordings, Rowdy flexes his songwriting muscle 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”. Then as a nod to one of Rowdy’s legendary Rowdy Friends, Billy Don Burns, Rowdy and Dallas Moore team up on BDB classic “It Would Kill Mama”.
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.
Rowdy recently joined Cavanaugh Music Management as its most seasoned featured Artist to date and is poised to scorch the Earth as he embarks on his “Always On Tour” Tour.
