Koe Wetzel is currently taking the Texas Country music scene by storm. The East Texas native was born in the town of Pittsburg, Texas and grew up loving music but also sharing the same love for sports. Wetzel originally chose football as his passion and left to attend Tarleton State University to play football. During his time at the university Wetzel decided to leave school and pursue music as his career.

In 2012 Wetzel and his band Koe Wetzel and the Konvicts released their first EP Love and Lies and in 2015 released their first full length album Out on Parole. However, it was his Noise Complaint album that took over the scene making him one of the most known Texas country artists in the industry. Just in May of 2019 Wetzel released another album Harold Saul High which again is currently making him the talk of Texas.

Harold Saul High is the album that most Texas Country music listeners are talking about. Wetzel has done a great job at keeping his loyal fan base entertained. His music is country with a twist of rock and edgy lyrics that bring something new to Texas country. Which is how he’s keeping his strong connection with college aged students while also reaching other fans out of that demographic.

His music is all about having fun and not having a care in the world but also putting life into perspectives that maybe others wouldn’t see it through.

Wetzel has been traveling and touring sold-out shows with many artists such as Cody Johnson and his close friend, one of our 2020 Artists to Watch, Parker McCollum who is featured on Wetzel’s song “Love” from his Noise Complaint album.

If you’re looking for an artist who is different, carefree, fun, rebellious, and everything in between then Koe Wetzel is your go to. The best way to describe him is not your everyday country sound you’re used to hearing. His unique writing and musical styling are something that is bringing the southern rock and outlaw back into country music .

Wetzel is currently on tour with artist such as Kody West, Cody Canada and the Departed, Chance Anderson, Read Southall Band, Colt Ford, Jacob Bryant, Muscadine Bloodline, and more. For tickets and more info click here.
