Hello, we are - Night Owl Country Band from Columbus Indiana.

 Night Owl Country Band is one of Indiana's premiere country bands. Night Owl has played many stages and have made their name from playing small town bars, theatres, fairs, and festivals. We have lived the dream of playing the Historic stage of the Grand Ole Opry. We are a multi-independent award winning band. This band brings high energy to every stage. Night Owl welcomes what 2023 has in store for their 'Somewhere in the Country Tour'.

The Patriotic sounds from the Indiana based Night Owl Country Band hits a metaphorical home run with 'Country To The Bone'. In a time where we are living in a world where there is so much conflict, this song brings us all together as Red, White, and Blue Americans. 'Country to the Bone' was written by Mike Morgan, Jeff Elliott, and Mike Owens, who are best known for writing songs for Alabama and the late Conway Twitty. The 'Award Winning' Night Owl Country Band has played in many venues including fulfilling the dream of playing on the Grand Ole Opry stage.
