Ever heard "Amarillo Highway" by Terry Allen?
Ever driven from Dallas / Fort Worth north to Amarillo?
I like that real Texas music. Any suggestions?

Yeah, that's the thing about Texas music. Of course it is known for Texas outlaw country and Texas blues.
Everything from Willie to T-Bone to Johnny Winter.
But then, there's Texas psychedelic like the 13th Floor Elevators, the B*tthole Surfers, and Poison 13.
Some of the most hard-core rap ever came out of Texas such as The Geto Boys from Houston.
The thing is, one could study almost all aspects of American music without ever leaving Texas. With huge cities like Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth, Austin, and San Antonio; the Texas music scene is just so gigantic.
I love it because from country to rock, from rap to psychedelic, or really from any genre to any other genre, it always gets done with a Texas attitude.
I guess it's been going on since Buddy Holly and before that!
