#11: Small Label Texas C&W

Here's some Texas (and Oklahoma) based C&W artists recorded on small record labels. Included are many excellent regional favorites as well as the first album recordings of Moe Bandy, Mark Chestnutt and Mickey Gilley. Also, Vince Gill was in "Mountain Smoke," Buddy Miller in "Partner's In Crime," and Jr. Brown in the "Last Mile Ramblers." Don't miss the two obscure Bob Wills 10" albums on the Antones label. Texas is one of the last places with a thriving live C&W music scene, and a good touring band can still make a living.
