Top Ten Texas Music Gifts

Every year it comes down to the final shopping days and none of us know what to get friends and family. Well here’s an answer that will help you spread the greatness of Texas Music and check those items off of your list! The Top 10 Texas Music Christmas Gift ideas:

1) Mavrik Magazine Subscription
There seems to be a new magazine that is making waves and, in my opinion, it dives into Texas Music deeper and more bluntly than any other magazine out there. Issue #2 just came out so you still have time to get on board!
Price: $24.00 per year
Get it From: Mavrik Magazine

2) Texas Red Dirt Photos Collection One
There isn’t an artist in this scene that hasn’t heard of or doesn’t respect Todd Purifoy for his photography of Live Music. Todd compiled 120 pages of full color photos in his first book and you can pick one up for your friends and family.
Price: $29.95
Get it From: Todd’s Website

3) A new CD or 10
Everyone loves CD’s. Take a trip over to Lonestar Music and pick one of these CD’s that were released on 2005!

4) Gift Certificate to Our Tracks
Our Tracks is a great way to purchase the music that you want and not have to pay the overhead of CD packaging, etc… You can buy music one track at a time which is great because some of the bigger music stores just don’t carry everything that makes Texas Music what it is. (Those guys will probably kill me in mentioning this since as of the writing, they are still working the details out, but be sure to go over and check it out)
Price: Whatever you want to spend
Get it From: OurTracks.com

7) Gas Station Gift Card
Sure it’s kind of cheesy, but it’s like Gold to the road trip warrior.
Price: $20.00 goes a long way on a roadtrip
Get it From: Your local Quik-E-Mart

8 ) MP3 Player
Load 10 days of music on to a device that’s the size of your hand. Who wouldn’t want that for a nice roadtrip? Granted they can be a bit pricey, but if you know someone who’s worth it… go for it! Several manufacturers offer smaller models that are priced around $200. That’s pretty affordable!
Price: $200 and up
Get it From: iPod, Dell Jukebox

9) Johnny Cash Album
I don’t think I need to say one thing to make you believe that you need this.
