Bradley Banning’s “Don’t Mess With Texas” Is Heartache and Longing At Its Best

This isn’t your typical “Texas is the best” song, as Bradley Banning told me.

The Forth Worth, TX native has quite the story regarding his single, “Don’t Mess With Texas.” Banning told me “after my girlfriend broke up with me and I lost my job on the same day, I bought studio equipment with the engagement ring money I had saved up and recorded this single.”

“It’s actually about my struggle missing my home and missing that girl.”

With a back story like that, you can’t help but love this song.
