I don't look at my little website as any sort of news site per say. I do this because I want to help give many of the smaller artists a voice while still covering many of the larger independent (and occasionally mainstream) acts. When something big does happen however, I want to spend a little time to discuss such an event. I'm an unapologetic huge supporter of Aaron Watson. It's artists like him that pulled me away from mainstream when I started to realize the path it was going down. He and a few others, got me out of the bro-country trap and into the style of music I had been looking for the whole time. It's with incredible elation, that I get to say our boy Aaron Watson has an official Top-30 Country radio song with Outta Style.
The farther that I have immersed myself into the world of Texas Country Music, the bigger picture I begin to put together. I went from moving slowly away from mainstream country to nearly exclusively listening to Texas and Red Dirt music. As I have stated on multiple prior accounts, I find it to be a consistently higher quality melting pot for music. It satisfies the variations in genres such as country, folk and southern rock without me having to change the station if I’m streaming a Texas Red Dirt radio station. However, I have noticed an attitude among some of the music fans that I find bothersome and confusing that I believe could hurt the spread of good music all around.
Just a Massachusetts guy supporting Texas and other independent country/Americana artists.
