Ray’s of Hope Concert and Golf Tourney

Our good friend Wade Bowen and his Classic aren’t the only golf game in town, or the state, as it were.  Some folks in Gatesville have rounded up quite the cool line-up for a golf tournament fundraiser in a couple weeks. April 11-12.  A concert featuring some really cool acts such as full band performances from Adam Hood, Jason Eady and Thieving Birds will be alongside some acoustic performances from acts you don’t get to see very often anymore: Ryan Turner, Ryan James and Clayton Landua formerly of 6 Market Blvd.  The opportunity to raise some money for a good cause AND see some guys jam some tunes that you don’t get to see much anymore is too cool to pass up. We hope to see you in Gatesville on April 11-12.

Observer’s Best 50 2.0

In light of the passionate online response to the Dallas Observer’s “50 Best Texas Country/Red Dirt Songs of All Time”, we put modern online democracy in action and let you speak your mind. We set out to gather up your 50 “best”.  Using whatever metric you decided was most appropriate.  Popularity, influence, favorite, longevity, style, importance etc. You responded in a big way via Facebook, Twitter, IG, Reddit, email, carrier pigeon and smoke signal.  We cobbled all of YOUR responses together and put them in popular order.  The results are below. Is it perfect? No. Is it a more “legitimate” (term we used probably a little harshly) than the Observer list? Probably. But the cross section that voted in this unscientific poll still don’t represent all tastes. We could do it again next week and get a different 50.  Speaks to the quality of songs over the years.

Will people still be upset? Definitely.

1. Robert Earl Keen – “The Road Goes On Forever”

2. Charlie Robison – “My Hometown”

3. Pat Green – “Carry On”

4. Cory Morrow – “Nashville Blues

5.  Pat Green/Walt Wilkins – “Songs About Texas”

6.   Jason Boland and the Stragglers – “Somewhere Down in Texas”

7. Cross Canadian Ragweed – “17”

8. Turnpike Troubadours – “Every Girl”

9.  Ray Wylie Hubbard – “Snake Farm”

10. Jack Ingram – “Biloxi”

11. Randy Rogers Band – “This Time Around”

12. Bart Crow – “Wear My Ring”

13. Brandon Jenkins/Stoney LaRue – “Feet Don’t Touch the … Keep Reading

Best of All Time?

Anytime a “best of” list is compiled, there will be much criticism. Today the Dallas Observer published a list we termed “interesting” on social media.  Interesting due to some glaring omissions and strange inclusions.  An extremely impassioned response broke out on our Facebook page decrying the list.  This motivated us to undergo a remix.

So…we’d love to hear your top 5 (not 50 unless you feel inclined) best Texas/Red Dirt songs “of all time” using whatever metric you determine. We’ll compile the results of this informal poll into what is hopefully a more legitimate representation of “best”. Hit us with your TAKES below!… Keep Reading
