A Good Ride with Lyle and Robert Earl

Back when I had an alternate country radio show in the 90s, I'd often do a Texas themed show around July 4. Since I put together an all Texas alt-country 90s mixtape back in November, I thought I'd focus this week on everyone's favorite Aggies - Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen. It's a little light on the obscure tracks, but heavy on the Texas themed songs.

I wish all country music came from Texas.

I really loved those first few albums by Lyle & Robert Earl. And Nanci, Jerry Jeff, Townes, Guy, Jimmie Dale... The list goes on and on.

They do produce a lot of great music down in Texas (even if a lot of 'em move there because of the scene.:)
