Longtime friends and collaborators Kevin Fowler and Roger Creager are excited to announce they’ve finally made it official: the pair have teamed up to create Dos Borrachos, a one-of-a-kind collaboration and duets album of the same name. The two Texas heavyweights wasted no time getting a single ready, either. — fans can hear and see the video for the new single “Barroom Buddies” now.
Fowler and Creager hatched the idea for Dos Borrachosone night while on a songwriting trip down in Mexico. The pair had outlasted all of their peers at the bar, and when the cook served them tacos “para los dos borrachos” (meaning “for the two drunks” in Spanish), they knew they had their name.
DOS BORRACHOS features an eclectic cast of songwriters, from legends like Tom T. Hall to party country newcomers like HARDY. The album releases on November 15th, on the heels of Fowler’s BARSTOOL STORIES. The record serves as the first new music for Roger Creager since 2015’s GULF COAST TIME. Acclaimed writer and producer Trent Willmon steered the helm on the new collaboration.
The fans who have already taken part in Fowler and Creager’s four-day musical Mexico getaway Big Cabo Fest have a great idea of what to expect from the new album. In fact, the fun times, wild stories, and overall success of “Big Cabo” inspired the fun-loving project in the first place.
“The Big Cabo Fest is unlike anything else we’ve ever been a part of,” says Kevin Fowler. “All these crazy fans come down to Mexico and hang out with us and some of our best friends for four days. This album is basically that party put into 10 songs.”
“It doesn’t get much better than good friends, good music, and a beautiful place to share it all,” adds Creager. “We hope this new album is a little slice of that.”
