Buck Howdy

"It won't take kids more than a minute of listening to Buck Howdy's songs to start giggling – by the end of the album they'll be rolling on the floor with glee!"
Arizona Parenting Magazine

Reviewers from the Los Angeles Times to the Washington Post and many in between have tried to describe Buck Howdy: he’s been called “the nexus of Roy Rogers, Will Rogers and Mr. Rogers,” described as “a cross between Roy Rogers and Shrek,” or “Gene Autry meets Dr. Demento!” And while there’s a nugget of truth in each of those depictions, they miss the obvious – Buck Howdy is simply an overgrown kid with an over-sized talent for entertaining.

"Buck Howdy is kind of like your big brother's wisecracking friend or your favorite 'fun' uncle -- you know, the one with the water-squirting ring and the whoopee cushion.”

The bottom line? In big cities and small towns kids and their parents adore Buck Howdy.

Most of his releases feature a passel of original songs and occasionally he duets with other kids music stars such as Laurie Berkner and Trout Fishing in America. Two of his cds, AROUND THE CAMPFIRE and the brand new AAAAAH! SPOOKY, SCARY STORIES & SONGS are spoken word albums. But whether the cds are all music or spoken word, his releases have garnered rave reviews and honors including two GRAMMY Nominations, a Notable Children’s Recording award from the American Library Association and being named to NPR’s Top Ten list of kids’ cds.

Clearly, Buck is more than just a singer. Howdy has hosted his own radio program, on XM Satellite Radio and dozens of local stations and he created and stars in a series of Emmy Award winning television interstitials titled Buck Howdy’s Hayride. In fact, a half-dozen of his videos are staples of the programming on Noggin, Nickelodeon’s pre-school channel.)

Buck has performed multiple times at The White House at the Grand Ole Opry, and in hundreds of concerts at schools, state fairs and performing arts centers from coast to coast.
