Listen to them all and more. The great thing about being in Lubbock is we get normally have someone from Texas Country/ Red Dirt playing here every wkd.

I listened to The Man that I have Been all the way through while studying in the library today. Good stuff. Wouldn't you know it I hated country until I went to A&M.

Bryan/College Station has to be one of the best places to get into Texas music. KTEX 106 is the best radio station around, I can get it at home, just wish I could pick it up at work in Houston.

And it's good to know I'm not alone

take eli young out of the list and THEN call it texas country. gonna come to austin for lonestar state jam?

I absolutely hated country music until I came to Texas, and even for a good while then. Now all day long I listen to 959 the ranch online, awesome stuff.

My favorite would be Robert Earl Keen.

Earl

You listed the top 5 in my cd player.

I can't believe that it took five posts for someone to mention Robert Earl Keen. We're kind of into his mindset/shtick around here and refer to him as "Crazy Uncle Bobby." I have a degree in literature and definitely respect that he can tell a mean story.
Link Posted: 3/26/2009 10:14:42 PM EDT
I will listen to just about anything. I rely on my brother to keep me up to date on new artists on the country scene. I used to work with the lead singer of the derailers. I've got a ton of RobertEarl on MP3 in my car now. What I like about him is the range. Slower songs, funny songs, songs to get druck to, and song to sit quietly and drink whiskey.

oh yea and cory morrow was a guest judge in a charity boxing match i was in. cool guy in person. now someone explain to me why many texans hate on pat green and say he's a sellout. is it just because he moved out of state??? i only started listening to country 2 years ago.

Hey check out 925theoutlaw.com that's a texas country station out of San Antonio and they "stream, just like after a few beers" Similar format to JackFM. I'm seeing Randy Rogers this weekend at John T. Floore's Country Store in Helotes.....


p.s. I'm also in Houston.

ETA: My Grandpa used to be in a band that played with Willie Nelson; back when Willie had short, clean cut hair and wore suits. I've seen pictures!

Texas country is about all I have listened to for the last twelve or thirteen years.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 5:27:30 AM EDT
How can you have a list of Texas Country artists and not include Stoney LaRue? Seriously?

If you get the chance this summer, the best venue I've been to in a while is Whitewater Ampitheater outside of New Braunfels. A great weekend to go would be Randy Roger's Sake of the Song weekend, it is for a good cause. www.whitewaterrocks.com (no I don't get paid for this).

I have a friend who lives over near Bryan, and we argue all the time about which place is better for Texas music, and I think it is a toss up. Austin/San Marcos/New Braunfels is right there with Bryan/College Station in shows and talent. I like being here though since I get to hang out with most of the guys after the shows and at random times.....

That's all I want to listen to. Unfortunately 94.7 badlands FM just came back on the air after about a year stint as a tejano station.

Thank God they're back!!!

Texas Country?

old school

me and Clay Blaker and Dale Watson


Some of the texas country people I've worked with:
Johnny Bush


Clay Blaker

Clay wrote a few good tunes.


Mark Chesnut


Mark Nesler


Billy "Popeye" Carter (former Texas Playboy)


Used to own a dancehall back in the day when honkytonks were honkytonks


2,000 sq. ft. of Arkansas oak and NO LINE DANCING...we held our women when we danced.
(btw: carried a Ruger Speed Six in those days)

There are some good, young players out there keeping the tradition alive. Has anyone mentioned Jason Allen?
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 10:02:21 AM EDT
Wow! That last picture of a dancehall, I swear is a spitting image of the Cabaret in Bandera, Tx which is now a music museum.

Several years ago (before my dancing time as I'm only 26), a good majority of the dance halls around San Antonio actually had forced dress codes. I kinda wish they still did. Then again you can tell the girls apart, the ones that wanna dance, and the ones that dress like BrittneySpears and just go to drink.....

I actually had one girl (flat bottom shoes, and a funky beret type hat, obviously wasn't there to dance) reply to my dance invitation that she had "to hold down the fort" Yeah you gotta watch out for them ingines that come marauding by, they'll scalp you, and take over your fort. The "fort" happened to be a cedar plank surrounding the dance floor so you can lean, dance, or rest your beer on.

OH and no one mention Bob Wills, Aaron Watson, Way Wylie Hubbard, or Two tons of Steel (who's drummer went to my highschool).

Even if theres no real point to this thread maybe it'll get a few names out there to some people that don't know what they're missing

Speaking of "left", Clay sold everything he owned (even his gold and platinum records) except for his tools, fishing tackle, and a change of clothes and moved to an island off the coast of Panama.

Now he just surfs, fishes, snorkles, and pounds nails building beach houses.

Man, when he quit the music business he did it just like he got into the music business: all in or nuthin'.

"Cody Johnson, Stoney LaRue, Charlie Robison, Pat Green, Cory Morrow, Kevin Fowler, Radney Foster, Randy Rogers, Jerry Jeff Walker, Roger Creager, Jack Ingram, Robert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett, Steve Earl, Clay Baker, Jason Boland, Chris Knight, Willie Nelson"

Good list, but don't forget a few of the veterans out there keeping the dancewax spread like Alvin Crow and Gary P. Nunn.

Don't forget:
Drew Womack (hey Daisy is my favorite)
Marc Monaco
Bruce Robison
.....


and since no one mentioned them...

the Dixie Chicks
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 7:28:17 PM EDT
I listen to all of these. You should also check out a guy named Charlie Shafter. great CD. Pat green is a sell out because he would get on stage and preach about Nashville sucking and such and then jumped ship first chance he got. I have nothing against him and still listen to him but definate difference in musical taste in the first 2 albums and what is out now. From Texas COuntry to Kenny Chesney. Also put Shooter Jennings in there also. Phil Pritchett is the man!!!

anyone remember Bruce Kidder from The Range?

I miss my friend and my morning rants.

95.3 just isn't the same without Bruce. He could be a bit of a prick at times, but I liked his style. I thoroughly enjoyed your bad cover bit in the mornings, as well.

The best story teller EVER!!!!- Robert Earl Keen
Able to get the most emotion from a song- Bleu Edmondson
The best "this is just how it is" songs- Rodney Crowell (Obscenity Prayer)
Best pool hall sound- Ray Willie Hubbard

And that's just a fraction of my playlist. If it comes from a Texas singer I probably like it.
