With Josh Crowe on guitar and Wayne Crowe on bass, the Crowe Brothers’ music career has spanned more than four decades and a dozen recording projects. Growing up in Clayton, Georgia, Josh and Wayne began playing music as boys with their dad, Junior Crowe, and with various local bands playing bluegrass and gospel. In 1975, they teamed up with Raymond Fairchild and worked the bluegrass festival circuit and traveling the country with him full-time for the next 15 years, and relocated to Maggie Valley, NC. Over the years of their career, the Crowe Brothers have made notable appearances on the Grand Ole Opry and at the Library of Congress, as well as numerous National TV show performances, including the Bluegrass Spectacular, Fire on the Mountain, Nashville Now, I-40 Pickin’ at the Paradise, and American Music Shop.
To their credit, they have received recognition from the SPBGMA association (Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America) with awards for Best Bluegrass Rhythm Guitar and Best Instrumental Band and were nominated by IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) for Emerging Artist of the Year. In 2009, their recording of “Cindy Mae” (written by Cody Shuler), went number one on several bluegrass charts. In 2011, “He Could Pick the Hound” (penned by Steve Watts), also reached the number one slot.
Wayne left the road for a while around 1990 and Josh continued to play music with other acts such as Crowe & McLaughlin (David McLaughlin, formerly of the Johnson Mountain Boys) and with his own band, The Josh Crowe Band, resulting in a recording project for both acts. While not on the road, Wayne and Josh have worked at numerous theaters around Maggie Valley, NC and Gatlinburg for the past 40 years, including the Stompin’ Ground and the Maggie Valley Opry.
In 2005, Josh and Wayne began touring once again as the Crowe Brothers, reuniting their brother harmonies. Josh is also an accomplished songwriter and has written many of the songs that they perform, including “The Winds Are Blowing in Maggie Valley,” “I Knew It Wasn’t You (Telephone Song), “Broken Heart Bound,” “Take Me By The Hand,” “Million for a Broken Heart,” and “Grandma’s Little Boardside Cabin.” Their upcoming project will also include a gospel song written by Wayne called “Where Will You Be?”
