In the Land of the 3 Named Singer Songwriter

          As early March weather in the Northeast tends to be reliably crappy, I always wish I was heading to SXSW in Austin.  Great music, great food, and usually great weather.   So as a little wistful homage, I give you  tonight's compilation of 3 named Texas singer songwriters.  Now, I usually don't go for cute themes, but, well, there are a lot of durn good 3 named singer songwriters in Texas (all of the ones below have some sort of connection to Texas even if they don't all live there now).  So if you find it annoying, just change the name of the comp  (and the artwork) after you download it.

@RogerH,

I'll have to check both of them out - as long as they're Texans, of course. :)
