Houston Bernard may reside in the city, but his country roots run deep. Born in Oklahoma, Houston is a direct descendant of famous gunfighter George “Bittercreek” Newcomb, a member of the infamous Wild Bunch and a most wanted man in the 1890s. Houston’s father and uncle played in country bands with stars like Tanya Tucker and Sleepy Labeef and were a staple in the Nashville and Oklahoma music scenes known as The Rebel Brothers. Houston draws musical inspiration from his family’s rockabilly and country roots. He brings upbeat, relatable music with his powerhouse vocals and a touch of country twang that transcends age, and resonates with a large audience.
Houston has shared bills with country superstars like Luke Bryan, Old Dominion, Granger Smith, Montgomery Gentry, Marshall Tucker Band, and Clint Black. With staggering Spotify and YouTube streams, and videos in rotation on The Country Network and The Heartland Network, Houston is reaching both new and established country fans.
