Texas country time.

If you’re feeling pretty disappointed with the boyfriend country, electronic beat, pop with a twang kind of music that is dominating the mainstream country airwaves right now, you’re not alone. Sure, there’s a lot of good stuff in the mainstream right now, probably better that it has been in some time, but there’s plenty of bad as well. And some of the bad is REALLY bad…

The good news is, that outside of the Nashville bubble, there’s a ton of great country music happening all across the country, especially in the great state of Texas.

If you primarily listen to Country Top 40, the Texas/Red Dirt scene might be a little foreign to you, but fear not, we’re about to give you a nice introduction to the wide world of Texas Country. It’s by no means an all-encompassing list, just a little something to get your feet wet.
