Pretty good list. Top 3 are strong. Vancouver is my favorite RK song. Love Somewhere Down in Texas and The Weary Kind. Angry All The Time is a great song. Not my favorite Wade Bowen song. I like Trouble better. Not a big fan of CCR now but their first couple albums were great so no problem with 17. I like 'My Hometown' but probably would've gone with 'Sunset Boulevard' or 'loving county' instead. But I can see why it was chosen. Not sure Deryl Dodd belongs on the list.
I sure do miss the type of music Pat Green used to make and for me it doesn't get any better than Robert Earl Keen.
As we look upon the massive machine Texas country has made chug along over the past several years, it's...
Somewhere in Texas & My Hometown are my favorites off that list. I prefer A Guy Like Me by Reckless Kelly or even Seven Nights in Eire.
If you enjoy this genre, check out some of the lesser known people like:
Mike Ethan Messick
Rodney Parker & 50 Peso Reward
I really enjoy these bands a lot too:
Whiskey Myers (Ballad of a Southern Man)
Turnpike Troubadours (7&7)
The Damn Quails (California)
Man, there's a lot I would like to list as this is a subject I could talk about all day.
Good list. I like Whiskey Myers, Turnpike Troubadours and Aaron Watson (wish I could say I'd been drinking)
Becoming a big fan of Lost Immigrants. (Judgement Day, Maybe December and Let's Drive). Definitely worth a listen
Not a big fan of the list. It's not bad, but it's not great either.
I do agree with Somewhere Down in Texas (should be higher), My Hometown, Nashville Blues, Things Are Fixin and Carry On.
They could have used different REK, Cross Canadian and Ryan Bingham songs. The others are OK, but nothing spectacular imo.

Roger Creager does not approve. And why isn't Southbound 35 on this list instead of Pat's first big commercial hit?
I'm friends with Ryan Bingham so very partial to him. Love "Southside of Heaven", "Sunrise" "Long Way from Georgia", "Dollar a day"
While it doesn't belong on this list, "boys from Oklahoma" belongs on some list. Any dig at the Sooners gets a vote from me.
I like "Sunrise" myself.
Another guy I left off my list that I always enjoy is Chris Knight ("Love & a .45", "Becky's Bible")
Pat Green has come back to Texas as he has left his Nashville label & released a cd. He does a fair rendition of "My Hometown" on it. Here's hoping he finds his touch like he had in his older music.
Going to see Texas Renegade tonight.
Big Chris Knight. There's a lot of pain in his songs. Nothing fake about Chris Knight music. Would've been fine with Oklahoma Breakdown by Stoney on the list too.
I need to listen to Ryan Bingham and Hayes Carll a little more it seems. Wade Bowen's new CD is really good.
Saw Josh Abbott last weekend (I don't care for him, but my fiancé likes him and my old college roommate opened for him so we got in free) and we're going to see Stoney this weekend at big Texas in spring.
Josh Abbott's earlier stuff is great. The new album...not so much. There's 1 or 2 I like but everything else just sounds flat.
Stoney rocks. That is all.
Just put together enough scratch to get some more songs from Itunes and y'all should check out JB & the Moonshine Band, most specifically "Beer for Breakfast" & "Aint Going Back to Jail". Also got Charlie Robisons "Good Times". Great song...

RE: Chris Knight... I'll add "going down the river".
Wow. Glaring omissions in Stoney LaRue and Cross Canadian Ragweed. If they're going to add Wade Bowen, how about from his days with West 84?? Nothing he's put out compares to Try Not to Listen and Blue Light Live.
Pretty much all the Wade Bowen stuff I have comes from his West 84 days. Cross Canadian Ragweeds "Fightin' For" & "Sick & Tired" get regular play on my iPod.
Pretty much everyone that has been mentioned in this thread I have on the iPod but lately I've been looking for newer stuff. I do want to recommend the Philip Griffin Band to anybody looking for new bands. His stuff is not as polished as the other bands but I coached this guy in high school & is a genuinely good guy.
Y'all should listen to radiofreetexas.org for Texas/Red Dirt music. It's an Internet radio station so look them up.
That may be my favorite. That or Crooked Road
Haha. I've got a new band to add to my favorites list. JB & the Moonshine Band. Check out their songs "Perfect Girl" & "Sticker Peck Out". Good songs to have good times to. (Yes, I'm well aware I ended a sentence with a preposition.)
This is the OT thread but we've have to have some set of rules. Otherwise its chaos
That's a song title I won't forget. I'll have to take a listen.
