Based out of Shawnee, Oklahoma, Casper McWade and his HonkyTonk Rebels are no strangers to country music. Although from diverse backgrounds, this five-piece band has always shared one common thread, the love of true, homegrown country music. These boys don't follow suit with the "Nashville" standard, nor do they claim to be part of the "Red Dirt" scene. They simply put it out there the way it was meant to be done.
Casper was introduced to country and gospel music by his family during his childhood. His mother and grandmother both were musically inclined, his mom being a singer in a gospel group and his grandmother a songwriter. It was Bob Wills and Waylon Jennings who influenced him the most, however, regardless of the good upbringings associated with gospel music. 2012 marked Casper's first Texas radio release "Long Way From Home" and his music has been very well received ever since. His band has been deemed a "Dancehall Favorite" in many areas around Texas and Oklahoma. 2019 was a banner year with Casper having his song "Whiskey" picked up by friend Cody Jinks for the album "The Wanting," which received critical praise and entered the charts at #1. With lyrical content that will have you ready to party your boots off or a sad tune that will have you wiping your eyes, Casper and the Honkytonk Rebels continue to win over audiences around the globe. - The Underdog Music.
