What's Left of Texas?

The Cody Johnson Band plays a modern Texas anthem lamenting what passes for "progress" these days:

"What's Left of Texas?" by the Cody Johnson Band

I'm sorry, but you just can't beat lyrics like this:
They've taken God's name out of the schools
And Robert Earl Keen right off the radio.
They've taken John Wayne out of Hollywood
And replaced him with some Brokeback picture show!

I like it. Been enjoying the Texas music series.

Some other artists I like from the Texas music scene:
Pat Green
Kevin Fowler
Cross Canadian Ragweed
Cory Morrow
Roger Creager (love the Mexican influence in some of his tunes)
Aaron Watson

Then there's Texas Aggie music.
