C. Thomas Howell: From Teen Heartthrob to Singing Sensation

C. Thomas Howell, widely recognised as an esteemed American actor, has now added the singer title to his already impressive resume. Howell made his film debut in the iconic 1982 Steven Spielberg production, “E.T.,” where he portrayed the character of Tyler, the older brother’s friend.

However, it was in 1983 that Howell truly rose to fame, landing the role of Ponyboy Curtis in Francis Ford Coppola’s adaptation of S.E. Hinton’s best-selling novel, “The Outsiders.” The film went on to achieve cult classic status, solidifying Howell’s place in the hearts of fans worldwide.

Woloszyk shares that she is a devoted fan, even keeping a collection of old teen magazines featuring Howell alongside heartthrobs like Matt Dillon and Ralph Macchio. She proudly presents her treasured memorabilia to Howell, who graciously signs one of the magazines at a collectable show.

But Howell’s career extends far beyond his teenage heartthrob days. Throughout the ’80s, he starred in numerous hit movies such as “Red Dawn,” “Grand View USA,” “Tank,” “Secret Admirer,” “Soul Man,” and “The Hitcher.” Remarkably, his passion for acting has not waned over the years, as he continues delivering captivating performances in movies and hit TV shows.

Discover the Musical Talents of C. Thomas Howell with His Country Hit, “Gentleman Jack”!

One such recent success is the Netflix series “Abliterated,” in which Howell takes on a starring role. Woloszyk and her team confirm their admiration for the show, describing it as “brilliant” and applauding Howell’s acting prowess.

In his latest endeavour, Howell showcases his musical talents with the country song “Gentleman Jack,” chosen as Woloszyk’s single of the week.

With a whopping 40 years in the entertainment industry, the star unveiled his first-ever record, “American Storyteller,” in February 2023.

Woloszyk listened to the entire album, acknowledging that the genre explored by Howell may not have been her usual preference. However, the stories intricately woven into each song captured her attention. From “Hell of a Life,” where Howell takes listeners through titbits of his movies, marriages, and experiences with fellow co-stars, to the heartfelt country ballad “Pony Girl,” reminiscent of Pony Boy’s perspective. Notably, the single “88” struck a chord with the Gen Xers, evoking nostalgia among listeners.

With the release of his latest single, “Gentleman Jack,” in November 2023, Howell delves into introspection, exploring one’s humble beginnings and current circumstances. Notably, Woloszyk respected the inclusion of fiddle playing in this country song, an element often overlooked in contemporary country music. Howell’s country-bluesy voice nostalgically transports listeners to the essence of Nashville’s authentic country sound, echoing the sentimentality shared by her father, a Western Texas enthusiast.

Woloszyk mentions her close bond with her father as they enjoy their love for Westerns, a ritual often complemented by the TV station dedicated to country Western movies playing 24/7.

So, grab your headphones and get ready to be whisked away by the undeniable talent of C. Thomas Howell as he ventures into the realm of music with the stunning “Gentleman Jack”. Trust us, this is an experience you won’t want to miss.
