Anson Carter is a maverick, which is to be expected. He’s a Texan after all, and like most Texans, he’s full of contradictions. He’s a serious artist who dresses in black, but his smile is as wide as the Rio Grande. He drives to dance hall gigs in a pick up truck, but he’s just as likely to wrangle up his fans on the Internet with a website and a MySpace page. He can belt out a country song with enough power to blow the mud flaps off a semi, then turn around and strum an acoustic love song that’ll bring a lump to your throat. His songs make you want to drink, dance and have a good time, but there’s a heart and soul in his music that lets you know he’s the real deal.

Tom Skinner. The Great Divide and so many others have helped to shape and form this rapidly growing genre. bringing in the convictions of Woody Guthrie. and the swank and swagger of the Outlaw Country and Southern Rock movements".

For Bruce Robison. life looks pretty good. As a songwriter. Robison. very deliberately. sets his scene. poses his characters and sets the machinery in motion. Then. he stands back and gives them room to breathe. It's an approach that is a luxury in this day of blunt-object sentimentality and sledgehammer nuance that passes for most commercial country music.

Gary's father, who passed when Gary had just turned a year old, was a country/bluegrass performer for years in honky tonks throughout Texas and Oklahoma.

Texas isn't for cowards. Neither is it suited to musicians who cannot hear equally well what big cities like Houston and small burgs like Wink have to tell them. Singer-songwriter Ryan James hears all the refrains and refines them to his purpose. He's got a way to fill a bare-bones verse with a kind of deluxe longing that is plaintive and respectful and pleading and pleasurable. all at the same time. Ryan James takes on traditional country strains but filters them through the heart of a guy who realizes he isn't solving the world's problems because it's hard enough to just talk about his own.

“I would love to have been one of the great singers in the world -- like Vince Gill or someone like that -- even if it was just for one hour,” says Robert Earl Keen. “But I really feel like my gift is writing songs. That’s just there and it’s always been there. I don’t know why, but I always have stories -- they don’t all have to be true, just good. If I could put a subtitle on my best songs, it would be ‘based on a good story.’” With his latest Lost Highway album, The Rose Hotel (which hit #1 on the Americana charts), Keen re-confirms his place among the Lone Star State’s great storytellers, capable of painting rich, poignant landscapes worthy of Cormac McCarthy and spinning satirical yarns that’d do Kinky Friedman proud. The disc’s rough-hewn tone -- it’s one of the more immediate, organic efforts in Keen’s varied catalog -- emphasizes both ends of that emotional spectrum, with Band-styled organ washes dappling the evocative title track and a hoedown-worthy breakdown propelling the wry “Wireless in Heaven” to its conclusion.

It doesn’t take more than a second or two after meeting country-rock musician Ray Johnston to figure out he’s one determined dude. Though his motto is “smile hard,” he seems to live by a more famous mantra: “Failure is not an option.” Determination drove the lanky Montgomery, Ala., native to make good on his childhood pledge that he would one day play pro basketball; he wound up joining the Dallas Mavericks as a free agent in 2004. It’s what helped him turn his passion for music into his post-basketball profession, leading the Ray Johnston Band, which just completed a new album, AGAINST THE GRAIN. And most of all, it’s what kept him going as he battled leukemia. Five times.

I am a hopeless romantic. I like salsa. I read magazines from back to front. When it�s raining, I would prefer not to be in a car--behind the wheel or otherwise, but otherwise I am a cautious driver (unless I�m in a hurry). Until about a year ago, I was �borrowing� Internet from my neighbor. I have no agenda when it comes to relationships. My favorite nail polish color is OPI I�m Not Really a Waitress. I wore a blue dress to my wedding. I have a massive growing collection of pajama pants. I try to go to the gym for at least an hour every day (not �cause I love it). When used together, the colors brown and light blue, are soothing to me. Writing songs is where my heart is. I miss my grandpa every day. �Coal Miner�s Daughter� is still one of my all-time favorite movies. I can spend hours and hours in Target. I believe a good pedicure can cure anything. I like people that tell the truth. I sleep with a vaporizer on in my room. My alarm clock sounds like a rooster. I like �real� music. I like good smelling soap and candles. I use the websites UrbanDictionary.com and google.com at least once every single day.

The music community has tried for decades to define country music. Are steel guitars and fiddles required? Or is the essence based in the true-to-life message? Shy Blakeman is an old soul who portrays his own country music heritage on Long Distance Man, his acclaimed third studio album. Blakeman successfully melds together all the rural musical styles from below the Mason-Dixon line in order to create an album that is "so eclectic it's really hard to try and define it by one genre. And that's the way it should be," Blake notes. "But it all still feels within the realm of what country music is and used to be." This unique style developed naturally from a childhood in Wyoming and East Texas, added to years spent in Nashville, New York and LA collaborating with an eclectic group of classic country-rock musicians.

Texas-born singer/songwriter and guitarist Shawn Fussell isn't afraid of hard work. He proved it in his previous career as a tilesmith, a joint-cracking, back-aching occupation where meticulous craftsmanship is the only acceptable standard. And he has proved it in his musical career, honing his skills and his art over a series of years and self-released albums until he was ready to release a full-fledged debut, Shawn Fussell (2009) that is up to his exacting standards. Working with producer/engineer and musician Eric McKinney (Mark McKinney, the Weary Boys, Colin Gilmore) as well as bassist Tim Casterline and drummer Keith Hernandez, Shawn produced a handful of robust new songs which he paired with re-imagined songs from his previous independent releases to produce a cohesive new sound that fits organically into the Texas Music/Red Dirt country-rock sound of Texas and the Southwest while still keeping its roots in the innovative, genre-crossing tradition of Shawn's musical idols. Heartfelt, lived-in originals like "Why'd You Lie" and "Serenity Song" juxtapose naturally with open-ended rockers such "Days and Daze" and his single, "Ride", which reached the top 30 on the Texas Music Charts. And, as something of a counterpoint to Shawn's first-person approach to songwriting, "Tulia, TX" is a searing account of real-life racial injustice in West Texas. As such, it takes Shawn's songwriting to a new level.

If we’re honest, the true weight of any band or artist is chiefly determined by how they translate to us in a live performance setting. Can they breach that intangible border between the stage and the gathered onlookers? Can they slip in like a steady rising state of inebriation, stealing our attention, controlling our emotions and ultimately drawing us into their world? Does their energy continue to vibrate within us well after the last chords have been played and our daily life comes to reclaim us? These are probably some of the questions one writer from Rolling Stone Magazine had running through his head before he proclaimed The Statesboro Revue as one of the highlights of the 2009 South by Southwest Conference and Festival. The Statesboro Revue goes back to 2008, but the evolving vision of front man and primary songwriter Stewart Mann goes back much further.

“Sam Riggs wears a legacy of honest country, makes good rock, writes lyrics that matter and straps on a stage presence second to none.” -- Ray Wylie Hubbard Receiving a hand up in this business of music from the likes of Ray Wylie Hubbard is no small accomplishment, and that mentorship – and sometimes harsh instruction – was not lost on Sam Riggs, who has had the fortunate opportunity to meander through Wylie’s cerebral countryside over the last few years. At the time of their meeting, Riggs was already a commercially-viable songwriter with an impressive root system, having sprung from his family’s musical genes; but he was still feeding off the unripe fruits of his youth. Through the songwriting school of Hubbard, he learned the time-honored virtue of patience and the aptitude for turning the rough and tumble falls to the ground into a steady, recovered gait.

The rich sounds of soul, blues, country, folk, and a little bit of rock are all accounted for in a cohesive mixture that digests smoothly, like a dose of high quality opiates hitting the bloodstream. Described as a young band with old souls, The Damn Quails are a combined effort between singer/songwriters Gabriel Marshall and Bryon White, proud saplings of Oklahoma�s opulent music vegetation. Understanding the caliber of songwriters that are indigenous to this particular part of the country is the only thing that makes a debut release this good seem plausible. Having been exposed to local storytellers like Tom Skinner, Mike McClure and Gene Collier, both Bryon and Gabe sank their roots into songwriting early on and remained close to that art while earning their music chops on stage indulging in music styles that ran the spectrum. It�s a very lucky thing for anyone who considers himself a music aficionado that Bryon and Gabe would emerge from the same stompin� grounds and eventually come stool�to-stool in a highly respected ritual among writers known as the Song Swap.
