Country Music : The Texas Influence

Guest Author - Kathy Lyngholm

Whether you know it or not a lot of the music you listen to has come to be because of the greats that have come out of Texas. There is a little known genre of country music known as Texas Country or Texas Music. George Strait, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Mac Davis and Kenny Rogers all hail from Texas and all have made their marks and paved the way for more acts to come up thru the ranks. Jack Ingram and Pat Green are two of the latest that have broken thru and are making a name for themselves in Nashville now. You might ask what Texas Music is and what is the difference between it and the other country music genres? Texas Music takes a bare bones approach to the lyrics and music, it combines traditional country with the outlaw genre and ends up with a loyal following of fans that can be found at dance halls and bars on most weekends following their favorite artist. It might surprise you to see the people dressed in the traditional country clothing right up there with the fans that are more conservative in their attire. Texas Country almost always features a steel guitar and an acoustic, youíll sometimes even find an electric guitar thrown into the mix for good measure. The one thing that all the Texas Country artists have in common is their no nonsense attitude towards their lyrics, they favor the working man songs that center around the family and things that the hard working folks can relate to. Most of the musicians on the scene have self released a number of their own works, leaving out the suits of Nashville to keep their music their own and not to have to follow the more common formulated music that seems to be coming out of Nashville these days. These artists are true to themselves and their music, they donít like meddling in the music or the emotions that they have poured into their lyrics. Kevin Fowler, Cory Morrow, Roger Creager, Miranda Lambert and Cross Canadian Ragweed are a few of the stars of the Texas scene right now and if you get the chance, listen to their music. Kevin Fowlers Beer, Bait & Ammo is great example of Texas Country and a must listen for any country music fan. He is different than most you will hear on the radio these days and a welcome change in this listeners view.
