Texas charttopper Wade Bowen raised over $84,000 for Postpartum Support International (PSI) this weekend in his 11th annual “Wade Bowen Classic” celebrity concert and golf tournament in Waco, TX.  The successful two-day event saw a record turnout and raised more money than the last two years combined.

Bowen, with the help of friends Cross Canadian Ragweed, Randy Rogers and Stoney LaRue, played to a crowd of over 1400 Sunday night in Waco.  The next morning 135 golfers, including fellow musicians Kyle Park, Doug Moreland and Darren Kozelsky as well as members of the Texas Rangers baseball team, joined him at beautiful Cottonwood Creek Golf Course for a round of golf and dinner to cap off the record-breaking event.  Other notable Texas musicians that showed up to support the cause and play golf were Ryan Beaver, South First Band, Bo Cox, Bobby Duncan and Texas Renegade.

Bowen’s critically acclaimed third studio effort IF WE EVER MAKE IT HOME was released Sept. 30 and includes the moving track “Turn on the Lights,” written by Bowen about his family’s struggle with postpartum depression.

Postpartum Support International (PSI) is a non-profit organization devoted to promoting awareness, prevention and treatment of mental health issues related to childbearing. PSI works tirelessly to support, educate, research and advocate for women who experience emotional changes and mental illness during pregnancy and postpartum.
