Congrats to Kevin Fowler, “Girl In A Truck” is #1 on this week’s
Texas Music Chart. (#2)


(Fans of Kevin Fowler can get a FREE download of this unreleased
song here.

While there take advantage of Kevin’s upcoming album package.)

Hey Jeff Willis here at Texas Country Music Junkie .com. I’d like to say
welcome to those that have recently “like”ed the TexasCountryMusicJunkie
Facebook fanpage. I have not done a blog post in a while. The holidays at the
end of last year followed by an extremely busy beginning of 2011 left me with
little time to do much extra non income fun. Normally this would be post ready
come Monday mornings. Better luck next week. I will be doing my best to get
regular consistent posts this year.

In fact, perhaps some of you could help. If you have a favorite Texas Music Artist you would like to write about and would like to submit it to TCMJ, I will be doing a post on how to go about that in the very near future. In the meantime, if you want to start on something already, I don’t have any real guidelines, except to say keep it fairly brief, with a highlight of the  band or artist, why you like their Texas Music, the title of their CDs with 2-3 favs from each, and 3-5 from their most current release. Ideally, 10-12 songs in total. As I said this is so far a fan run, non income site, so anything that is submitted will not be compensated except that the author  will be credited and any website they choose noted. Stay tuned for more details…

To the rest of this weeks chart.

Every week TCMJ looks at about 10 – 12 songs that are
moving up on the Texas Music Chart (lol, they don’t always make it to post, promise I’ll get better). We’ve already seen the #1 holder, so lets take a look at some more of the chart.  (The # in parenthesis is where the song was last week on the chart, and some song titles have a link to the song or video.)

The song “7 & 7” by Turnpike Troubadours’ has moved up to #3. (#6) Video

At the #5 is “Outlaw Band ” by Jason Boland & the Stragglers. (#9) Video

Jon Wolfe’s “Let A Country Boy Love You” #7. (#8) Video

The top 10 is Brandon Rhyder’s “Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good “. (#13)

Outside the top ten we like to look at who is jumping 5 or more spots.

“Let Me Love You” is #11  by Casey Donahew Band. (#22) Video

“I Hold the Bottle, You Hold the Wheel” by Reckless Kelly is #16. (#25) Video

While Bill Rice’s “Friday Night” is #26. (#35)

“Never Say Never” by Jerry Audley is #27 (#34) Song

Rob Baird jumps 19 to #28 with “Blue Eyed Angels”. (#47) Song

“Texas Kind Of Way” by Cody Johnson is now #30. (#40)

Aaron Einhouse’s “All I Need” has moved another 10 and is #35. (#45)

And Emory Quinn’s “Finds Danger” is #38. (#46)

Below are some songs making their first appearances on the chart:
#34 Jackson Taylor’s “Boys In The Band”
#41 Heather Myles’ “Pretty Poison”
#46 Aaron Watson’s “Best For Last”
#48 Jon Brewer’s “Texas Corn”

Unfortunately my PC has had a whole lot of issues lately.
Had to have it totally reset and haven’t had it and so I
haven’t been able to prepare my blog updates.

That being said I will post a late update on the Texas

I will possibly do the Wednesday Artist

Profile later this week, but will more than likely just

resume next Wednesday.

So there is a new #1! Congrats to Roger Creager and his
song “Swinging From The Chandeliers”.

Deryl Dodd has jump to #2 with “Death, Taxes and Texas”.

“Steal You Away” by Randy Rogers Band is #5.

Rich O’Toole’s “11th Street” is #6.

“From A Table Away” by Sunny Sweeney is lucky #7.

Rob Baird’s “Fade Away” moved to #9.

Rio Grand has jumped to #14 with “I Love Beer”.

And “Every Kiss Goodnight” by James Lann has moved to #15.

Cause I know Hank is playing a sold out show
And Waylon’s still wailin with his Honky Tonk Heroes
and Conway’s singing Hello Darlin’ to an angel on the front row seat
Don’t tell me tonight, don’t tell me tonight that Heaven ain’t the place to be

Hi, Jeff Willis here, TexasCountryMuscJunkie.com.
Each Wednesday’s blog post I will be highlighting
one of my favorite Texas Music artists.

Click for what this blog is about.

So I wanted to take a look at James Lann from Hitchcock, TX.

Type in a Google search on James Lann and you’ll get pages and
pages of music, concert dates, and social sites, but not much about
Lann himself. So I’ll leave you to look at the links provided on this
post to read the little info available. Having said that, your in for
a real treat if you’ve never heard his music before!

One of the first songs I remember hearing by James Lann, was
“You’re From the Country Too”; and it was one of those songs, the
first one you hear by an artist, that you know you are going to like
everything else you hear from that artist.

How true that is with James’ two awesome CDs: “Ford released in May
of 2007, and “Honky Tonk Kung Fu” released in January of 2010.

“F-O-R-D”, the title track off his first CD, received some attention, which was
followed up by an excellent song that also makes for a great Desparado Wrap.
That song is “You’re From the Country Too”, which reached #5 on the Texas Music
Chart
in 2008. The CD’s third release “Honky Tonk Two Step Queen” shot to the
top of the Texas Music Chart reaching #1 in 2009.

As for the rest of the songs on the CD they are worth listening to. Of particular
note are the cover of the 1980 hit by Mac Davis “Texas In My Rear View”…feast
your ears on this one!, “40 Miles Down 25”, “Deep In The Heart Of This Texan”,

“Daddy’s Little Girl”, “Moving On”, and “Cowgirl With An Attitude”.

are must listen songs, as well as the rest of the CD.

2010 saw the release of James’ sophomore release, “Honky Tonk Kung Fu”, and another
Texas Music Chart #1 “The Talent Requires”.

Also on the CD are a number of stand out songs. “Face In The Mirror”, “She’s Water”,
“I Owe You One” w/Jason Allen, “Halfway To Houston”, “That’s Why I’m Here”, and
an exceptional live acoustic cover of  Michael Martin Murphy’s “Wildfire”.

You’ve got to listen to Heaven Ain’t The Place To Be.
For excerpt see video above.

The current release off the CD is “Every Kiss Goodnight”, an upbeat song that is
jumping up the TMC #2 and TRRR #2.

All in all if you like great vocals, lyrical and musical content — just the steel is worth
the listening– and if you haven’t heard it yet, TCMJ highly recommends you get yourself
both these efforts by James Lann.

If you like his music, then you can help him by requesting his current
single be played on all the great radio stations that affect the Texas Music Chart.
See the Radio Station Info here.

You can also see James Lann and other Country Music Artisits on
the Texas Regional Radio Report which also gives a listing of the
Texas Country Music Artist and their current single’s position.

Be sure to Like James on facebook, and follow him on twitter, listen on myspace

You’re From The Country Too

You’re From the country too
I like my tractors green, I drink my coffee black
I choose a pickup truck, to get me there and back
Give me an ol’ dance floor, on the sawdust side
I dig my faded genes, I love my chicken fried

CHORUS:
If that’s country, I’m country through and through
If that’s a redneck, call me a redneck too
If that’s the way you walk, if that’s what you do
No matter where you’re from, You’re from the country too

I’ll give my weekend up, to raise a neighbor’s barn
A little dirt and sweat, never done no harm
I say “Yes Mam – No Mam, take my hat off inside
I hugged my Daddy, ‘till the day that he died

REPEAT CHORUS:

BRIDGE:
They’ll pry my dead cold finger off the trigger
The day they take my self defense
And they’ll never take the words – UNDER GOD
From my… Pledge of Allegiance

MODIFIED CHORUS:
If that’s country, I’m country through and through
If that’s a redneck, call me a redneck too
If that’s the way you bleed, Red White & Blue
No matter where you’re from, You’re from the country too
