Roger Creager Out of Context

In an interview with Kelly Dearmore of the Dallas Observer this week Roger Creager had this to say about the Texas Music scene.

I think of Texas country as a flower bed. There’s Jack Ingram, Cory Morrow, Reckless Kelly, myself, Robert Earl Keen and a few others in there that are really nice flowers. Over the past decade, that flower bed has been overrun with weeds.

Adam Hood Videos on YouTube

If you're a fan of Adam Hood like I am, you’ll be happy to know he went on a YouTube video posting spree. Included in the spree is “A Battle Won” a song hood wrote with Wade Bowen, who included it on his latest album, The Given. There’s also a cover of “El Cerrito Place” and a video of Adam and Cody Canada covering Hank Jr’s “Country State of Mind.”
