Hi, welcome to my blog on Texas Country Music.

After discovering my first choices for blog names

were already taken, I had to figure what to call it?

I asked myself why I was doing the blog? What were

my goals? Who was my audience? In short, what was

my motivation for doing so?

It all starts with the fact that I love the guitar

of all styles.

I also enjoy the sounds of the Banjo,

Mandolin, Fiddle, Steel, Resonator.  I love music

in general; Rock, Blues, Jazz, Classical, Bluegrass,

and Country. And the Country Music coming out

of Texas is the absolute best! There are so many

great songs comingfrom so many great

Texas Country Music Artists.

Ever since I started to recognize my tastes in

music, I’ve always “promoted” what I like to

others; always turning others on to the artists

and bands that I thought highly of. I wanted to

have a place for folks to go to read, see, and hear

about the music I like coming out of Texas; so it

became evident that Texas, Country, and Music

would be in the title. I am a junkie of such; and it

is my intent to make more junkies. : )

Put it all together and you have the name of the

blog:  TexasCountryMusicJunkie.com

I am amazed at the amount of great music that

never gets played on national radio; especially

the music coming from Texas.

My personal mission is to educate and enlighten

the rest of the world; and in particular California,

about Texas Country Music.

I will cover some nationally known Texas Country

Artists and bands, but my primary focus will be those

that have not surfaced into the national scene.

On each blog post, I will be covering an individual

Country Music Artist or Band once every couple weeks

to begin with; then once a week, with other content

woven in between time.

I will give some bio and history, as well as comment

on 3-4 of their songs. I will also provide links to the

artist’s website, facebook, myspace, mycountryspace,

and twitter pages. I do have a good sized list of artists

to begin with; but in the future I might welcome any

artist or band suggestions, and if they fit my personal

tastes, possibly use them in future posts.

I will also be posting about the places these artists

perform, as well as info on related website or articles

that I find of interest.

Ultimately, I would like to help in bringing Texas

Country Music to Southern California—boy do we need it!

Finally, I would like to draw your attention to some

additional pages on this blog.

I will have some affiliate links and banners coming soon

to this blog; please take a moment to see a briefing alert

on my “Affiliate Status Page”, which will be coming soon,

once the affiliates are fully functional.

Additionally, there will be a page link that will provide you

with information on how you too can start your own blog.

That is all for now.

Stay tuned for my first artist post coming

real soon. If you would like to receive notification of new

postings, please take the time to type in your name and email

address in the form to the right of the video.

The info you provide will not be shared or used for any purpose

other than the promotion of the content of the blog.

I look forward to sharing with you what I consider to

be the Best of Texas.
