Last year the music issue featured the state of Tennessee which, it goes without saying, is a treasure trove of great music. This year’s music issue features the music of Texas. First, Southerners debate whether Texas is really Southern. They certainly have the backward politics to matriculate in the club. But Texas has always trumpeted both its “Westernness” and its independence (as in "nation"). Talking about Texas music is as difficult, I would think, as talking about anything else in Texas if you aren’t FROM Texas. is complex, interesting, and full of fascinating people of all stripes. At the same time, you encounter what some call pride and others provincialism. Now, to me, “Provincial” is a word for people who prefer where they live to everywhere else. I was never sure when I lived there that some of my friends KNEW there was “everywhere else.” It is a fascinating place for sure. The music heritage of Texas equals its long fabled history. Janis Joplin, Ornette Coleman, Barbara Lynn, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Buddy Holly, Selena Gomez, Guy Clark—the list is imposing. What I look forward to is hearing about people I haven’t heard about. The issue is out now, and you might want to take a look at it. It comes with a sampler CD, this one featuring many of the greats and uniquely Texan names like Big Brother & the Holding Company, the legendary Bob Wills, Johnny Winter and Kinky Friedman.
