Kene Terry & the Bourbon Cowboys

Kene Terry & the Bourbon Cowboys


Americana/Alt. County/Folk Rock...Country influenced rock and roll.


Heavily influenced by artists such as Gram Parsons and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, the quartet originally from New Mexico has a distinct flavor that reveals its roots in the land of roadrunners and green chile. It’s been called roots rock, alt-country, country rock, and even shitkicker rock, but KTBC’s sound and style is constantly evolving and growing with the songs sewn and stories written. The Bourbon Cowboys have shared the stage with Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers, Shurman, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Randy Rogers Band and many other songwriters and storytellers.

Their current release, Jackalope, was recorded at Johnny Mulhair Studio in Clovis, New Mexico, and produced by Mulhair, a CMA nominated producer who cut his teeth at rock and roll institution Norman Petty Studio. Despite the funny name, this record is a serious Americana album. Recorded with real instruments and real reverbs on an analog tape machine straight out of 1974, Jackalope’s songs run down the road like a big rig through the night. From guitar driven rock and roll to the twang of the pedal steel, this is an album that you'll actually listen to from beginning to end.
