Born in the small town of Ninety-Six, South Carolina, Arvie Bennett Jr. started from humble beginnings. Money was tight but Arvie inherited things more precious than money... A strong faith in God, undying resilience in the face of pain, and a passion for life’s possibilities. The country singer/songwriter started out singing in the choir which led to his journey into the music industry. He traveled to Nashville, Tennessee where he experienced the highs and lows of the industry, as every musician does. In October 2018, Arvie, now a solo artist, signed a recording contract with Winter Records-Nashville. He immediately went into Yellow Hammer Studios and recorded “Just A Cowboy”, a six-song EP of original music.
“Just A Cowboy” was released early 2019 and continues to garner streams to this day. Throughout this year, Arvie Bennett Jr. has been making his name and sound known throughout Nashville and beyond. Along with his captivating EP, Arvie went on to release a music video for his title track “Just A Cowboy”. More recently, Arvie and Bunny Bennett teamed up and released a live acoustic performance of “Where He Found Me”, an absolute treat to experience beginning to end. The video truly highlights Arvie’s raw talent and passion for the art form.

Welcome back once again Arvie Bennett Jr! It’s always a pleasure to chat with you. The EP “Just a Cowboy” is admirably versatile but holds an impactful message through the lyrics. How long has this project been in the making? What does it mean to you to have it released to the public?
Thank you for your kind words about “Just A Cowboy.” It is always an honor to work with Buzz-Music and to share more about my music. The “Just A Cowboy” EP is a culmination of many years of writing, touring, and performing. The title track “Just A Cowboy” was written twelve years ago and has been recorded and released on two other projects. However, I feel like this EP is unique because I was better able to convey the emotions of my “live” performances on a studio album.
