A Cowboy through and through, Rowdy has proven himself as a force to be reckoned with on and off the stage. He trains horses and riders during the day and performs traditional country music by night and shows no signs of stopping. He won NSAI's 'Song of The Year' for a song he co-wrote, "More Than Just a Girl" and he's made a name for himself in country music in Texas, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Plans to tour across the U.S. are underway.

Growing up in Bowling green Kentucky, Rowdy Shea devoted the bulk of his formative years riding, roping and eventually training horses, traveling from coast to coast with his Dad and the Lyons family, who started and run the nationally known certification program for horse training.
Realizing early on that he was more into horses than sports, (although he turned out to be a pretty good football player and won two state titles while playing ball in high school,) and wanting to get on with his passion for horses instead of college, he applied for an early college graduate program and met all the requirements, allowing him to move to Texas, and later Oklahoma where he focused on turning his dream of becoming a world class horseman and competitor into a reality.
Riding with some of the world’s top horse trainers in the reining industry, Rowdy gained an incredible insight into the business of horses and also earned the coveted title as the youngest Accredited trainer under Josh Lyons.
During those years, living in his truck, crashing on people’s sofas, traveling and working alone on the road for three years, Rowdy learned a lot about himself.
He came to love the Texas Honky Tonk music scene. He’d been singing for awhile and posting up a few videos but it seemed like a far off dream until a mentor/ friend, Bradley Boyd, offered him a ranch job under one condition, that he chase music as hard as he’d been chasing horses, and that he would work his butt off for him while he was there. That was a real eye opener for Rowdy, having a 2X world champion calf roper pushing him to chase a different dream because he saw something in Rowdy that he didn’t see in himself.
At the ripe old age of 22, Rowdy has moved to Nashville and is spending his days writing and performing, working as hard on his musical craft as he did with his horses, and while he will always dance with horses for the rest of his life, music is the future for Rowdy.
While he’s never had the money to chase everything full speed ahead, he’s always been willing to work for pennies on the dollar as long as he’s learning.
His lifelong relationship with horses and the horse industry has taught him many of life’s lessons, mostly though it’s made him tough enough to embrace a life of being a person who chases their dreams
