About Blane Howard
Blane Howard is a Nashville recording artist who grew up in south central Arkansas. After high school, he decided to follow his dream of singing country music and moved to Nashville. He attended Belmont University where he met most of his band mates, and graduated in 2010. Blane has been touring the mid-south region of the country for several years, making a name for himself in the music industry. When he is not on the road, he stays busy writing new songs with other artists and songwriters in Nashville.
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.” He dreamed of one day growing up to be a country singer just like Alan Jackson. Twenty plus years later, he is chasing that dream he had as a kid. Blane was highly influenced by the music that surrounded him – from the country styles of Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, and Randy Travis to the Classic Rock of Lynyrd Skynyrd and AC/DC. Today he is heavily influenced by the styles of Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, and Brothers Osborne. All of these influences have made an impact on Blane’s unique style of country, “modern-traditional,” mixing the authenticity of the 90’s with the contemporary edge of today!
Blane has had the privilege of opening up shows for country greats like Blake Shelton, Hunter Hays, Granger Smith, Joe Nichols, Trace Adkins, Rodney Atkins, Travis Tritt, Charlie Daniels Band, and a few others. He has played in all types of venues, fairs and festivals, and other events including the Arkansas State Fair, the 2015 State Fair of Texas on the Chevy Main Stage, the summer finale of Nashville’s Next Big Twang, and the 2015 and 2016 CMA Fest Showcases produced by Big Foot Music, Southern Trace Songwriter’s, and Nashville Entertainment Weekly. Blane was named IMP-Independent Musicians Promotions 2015 Country Artist of the Year, and his music video for “Crazy” was awarded Judges Pick at Indi this summer.
‘Bout Time’ is the title track to Blane’s original EP, which was released in January of 2013, and is a fan favorite along with “She’s a Mess,” which is one of his most streamed and downloaded songs. In 2014 Blane wrote a song for Arkansas Tourism titled “Arkansas, Y’all;” then he re wrote the lyrics and made a Razorback version and licensed it with the University of Arkansas. You can hear it often on many radio stations across the state as well as at sporting events on campus. Blane’s most recent release was his first full studio album in June 2015 titled “Away We Go.” There are many great songs on this album, but you’ll definitely want to check out his fast growing hits “Friday Feeling,” “Crazy,” and “County Line.”
2016 shaped up to be a great year with lots of new venues and shows added to his schedule. Blane expanded into the Austin market with a performance at the Red Gorilla Music Festival in March and added shows in Kyle and Pflugerville, TX as well. Blane opened the 2016 StarDaze Festival in Star City, AR for headliner, Granger Smith; he opened for Hunter Hayes on June 4th at the Timberwood Amphitheater in Hot Springs, AR; he opened for the legendary John Berry in Lindale, TX; and he opened for the band Exile at Bordertown Casino and Arena in West Seneca, MO. In addition, he was invited back to perform on the Chevy Main Stage at the 2016 State Fair of Texas on one of the busiest days at the fair … Saturday on TX/OU game day just before Texas artist Cody Johnson.
Blane’s biggest gig of 2016 however, was his wedding day in late October. Blane surprised his bride-to-be, Megan, and everyone else, on the morning of their wedding with a new song he had written for her. He collaborated with long time friend and songwriter, Jordan Kyle Reynolds, on what turned out to be a personal and very emotional song, “Promise to Love Her.” Megan quickly asked for the new song to be their “first dance” song.
A few days after the wedding, with a short phone video clip from the reception, Team Blane shared the snippet of the song on Blane’s FB music page, and nothing’s been the same ever since. The short clip garnered 100,000 views in a few short weeks and climbed to over half a million views on Facebook! The Official Music Video for “Promise To Love Her” released on March 6th and shot to 1 MILLION VIEWS on Facebook in just over 2 WEEKS! The single released on March 10th and has been picked up by several small/medium radio markets.
