Day Ten – We’re one third of the way through, and thought we’d share some of the holiday music from the Lone Star State.  We have it pretty good here – the indigenous music can encompass country, blues, folk, Tex-Mex, polka and good old rock and roll.  And there is no shortage of true characters to play all this fine music here in Texas.  We will surely visit Texas again on our 30 day countdown, so warm yourself up a big bowl o’ chili or grill some Earl Campbell sausages and cue up these tunes.  Y’all have a Merry Christmas!
