Wade Bowen Reveals Physical And Mental Health Issues In Documentary, ‘Inconsistent Chaos’

In 2018, singer Wade Bowen lost his voice and a friend.

Hemorrhaging vocal chords silenced Bowen for 3 months of 2018, right after releasing his latest album “Solid Ground.”

During that time, faced with the uncertainty of if he’d ever sing again, he was scared, he was sad and he was broke.

Right after having surgery to repair his throat and still unable to work, the unthinkable happened. A close family member and crew member took his own life on Father’s Day.

When asked about his nephew’s suicide and if he was aware of his struggles, Wade tells Grammy.com:

“I wasn’t aware at all. None of us were. That’s been the toughest thing through this process because he had everything he ever wanted…a beautiful wife and an amazingly perfect son. I remember almost feeling jealous of him at bus call cause he would walk on the bus beaming with pride and smiling so proud. I’m not sure what happened that fateful night. None of us will every know. But he was happy. I know that for sure. I want his wife and son to always know he was truly happy. He just seemed to forget it one crazy night and we will never know why or how it got to that point.”

The 18-minute film above titled Inconsistent Chaos features interviews with Wade and his band, crew and family, as well as his friends and fellow artists Randy Rogers and Cody Canada.
