Born in Othello, Washington and raised in Southwest Idaho, Buddy DeVore grew up surrounded by ranchers, cowboys and Country Music. He started playing mandolin and singing at the age of 8, and got his first guitar at 14. He started learning songs by singing along with records and the radio, and has developed a huge repertoire of somewhere between 3 and 4 hundred songs. He now makes his home in New Plymouth, Idaho, where he and his wife Samantha are raising their three sons, Porter, Samuel and Roland. After spending 15 years as a professional cowboy throughout the western states, Buddy began to focus more seriously on his music and began playing professionally. In 2017, he brought together several other talented musicians from Southwest Idaho to form Buddy DeVore and the Faded Cowboys. With their energetic brand of Western Honky Tonk music, the band plays extensively at venues and festivals throughout the Mountain Northwest. The Faded Cowboys consist of Buddy DeVore - lead vocal and guitar, Bernie Reilly - upright bass, guitar and vocals, Louis McFarland - drums, and Rob Matson - guitar and vocals, and John Simpson – steel guitar. Their shows feature the best of classic traditional Country Music, as well as original material written by Buddy. The band released their first album, "Beautiful Day" in November, 2019, and it is currently in production their 2nd album.
