“I have always been a huge Allman Brothers fan as a kid’ says Randall. “Performing as the frontman for a cover band for years I had never performed this song. Then one day walking into a band rehearsal I was singing “Midnight Rider” and my wife happened to capture it on video and decided to post it on my TikTok page thinking nothing of it. The next morning my wife come bursting into the room to wake me up saying that I all of a sudden had 17,000 new followers overnight and over 200k views in just a few hours. Flash forward to +30k new followers and counting, the new fans practically begging for me to release this full version. It is a great song that I love performing.”

About Randall Fowler:
Virginia-born and Carolina raised, Randall Fowler’s roots run deep in Country Music. His soulful voice, though, is sure to grab the attention of fans from all genres. The Charleston City Paper agrees as well with his fans and voted him the “Best Male Vocalist” in 2020.
Randall Fowler experienced the excitement of performing on stage at the age of 3 years old while attending his very first concert and was pulled up on stage by the country music icon Ricky Skaggs who watched in amazement as Randall sang every word to Ricky’s “Honey (Open That Door)”. That was the first experience that would set in motion the journey of this powerhouse vocalist. When he was ten years old, Randall and his family moved to Goose Creek, SC. There, Randall played football and baseball growing up and was known for being the guy who was constantly singing his favorite country classics by Joe Diffie, Travis Tritt, and Tracy Lawrence. After graduating high school, Fowler joined an alternative rock cover band that toured for ten years up and down the Southeast coastline. Because of Randall’s crowd capturing soulful voice, the group started adding classic R&B and country songs to their setlist.
In 2018, Randall decided to leave the group and pursue a solo artist career and started collaborating with his friend, James Chamberlain. The two of them wrote and produced Randall’s debut EP entitled THE RECIPE. This project was received extremely well by his local fan base as well as got the attention of the local booking agents.
Continuing to perform, Randall has recently opened shows up for Tracy Lawrence, Mitchell Tenpenny, Walker Hayes, Chris Lane, Scotty McCreery, Priscilla Block, and Muscadine Bloodline. The response from new fans has lit a fire in Fowler to release new music every 4 to 8 weeks.
Recording in Nashville with Grady Saxman since 2019 at Saxman Studios, his first single release came in March of 2020. “Whats She Sippin On” followed by “Slow it Down” in the fall and closing out the year strong with “Coming Home (One Way Road)”.
Randall and his wife, Alexandra, welcomed their first baby girl in November of 2021, taking some time off to be a father has been one of his greatest accomplishments and motivators to keep the momentum going with new music coming all year long.https://www.countryschatter.com/2022/05/randall-fowler-2022-break-out-artist-releases-allman-brothers-classic-midnight-rider/New ArtistsNew ReleasesNewsPress Release"Honey (Open That Door),Joe Diffie,Mitchell Tenpenny,Phyllis Block,Randall Fowler,Ricky Skaggs,Scotty McCreery,Tracy Lawrence,Twitter "Midnight Rider"
