He was king of Texas Music before there was even a crown. Pat Green blazed his own trail to Nashville through Texas, and back again. He experienced a level of success, most bands never will. Every single band with a bus or van touring around Texas, should have already send him a "thank you" note, and a six-pack of beer.

The Grammy nominated singer/songwriter returns to East Texas this Saturday to play our fifth-anniversary Red Dirt BBQ and Music Festival. To honor his return to Tyler, here are our Top Five: Greatest Pat Green Songs Of-All-Time.

Before you look and get all pissy, please note, that this was very tough to whittle down to only five. And because it's a mere five song list you won't see several greats; "Southbound 35," "Crazy," "Songs About Texas," or "Take Me Out to a Dance Hall." All which could've easily made the cut. Nor will you see any songs off his albums, Songs We Wished We Written I, or II. But you will see some great songs, including the best album cut ever, never released.

So, without further adieu, here are ours... What are yours?
