She's Already Made Up Her Mind

There is a certain brand of music we have here in Texas, although it's largely a Southwest thing, but I'd say centered in Texas. The types of musicians who typify it are Joe Ely, James McMurtry, Lyle Lovett...maybe some others I can't think of right now. What bugs the living crap out of me is I have no idea what to call this music. It's not "Texas Rock"...it doesn't really appeal to that crowd either. It's like "Thoughtful Texas Rock"? (I love Texas Rock too so don't send angry emails). Anyway if anyone has a term for this music let me know!



Rock that is thoughtful

How about "literate" rock? That term covers all geographical areas.

Yes but...

Like so many other things, it's best when Texans do it!
