Texas Country Star Kevin Fowler Receives Unusual Honor

Kevin Fowler has always been a proud Texan. Not only does he live in a huge ranch in the state, but he spends his time promoting environmental causes there as well. Because of his devotion to the environment, Dr. Robert Anderson, an entomologist, recently gave Fowler a strange, but distinct honor.

After scientists discovered a new weevil outside of Austin, he gave it Fowler’s name. The Lymantes fowleri is now one of the over 60,000 species of weevils that are currently known to exist. Naturally, Dr. Anderson is a huge fan of the Texas country star and loves how he refuses to compromise his music.

Currently, Fowler is finishing up a brand new album to be released on his own record label. If you want to get a sneak peek of what to expect, the single “Sellout Song,” is now available to purchase. You can listen to the song in this clip.

 

Kevin Fowler was born in Amarillo, Texas, and has had four singles chart on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Over the years, he has also worked with Sammy Kershaw, Mark Chesnutt and Montgomery Gentry. Originally, Clint Black’s label signed the country singer, but he has since gone on to start his own label.
