Sigh. I meant to vote for Garth. I guess Reba could use some love.

The answer is Garth, but the kings of Leon deserve to be on the list for sure.

Chet Baker. Give me that jazz!

Yeah I thought I heard they were from OK but I think Google told me Texas.

My Color Me Badd vote was influenced by them being a thing when I was in high school. Hopefully I don’t get my PFB+ credentials revoked

No Charlie Christian? No Leon Russell? Other and other. Step up your music game, people.

Cross Canadian ragweed, turnpike troubadours, Stoney larue etc


I agree! Cross Canadian Ragweed, Turnpike Troubadours and Stoney all should be there. Absolute LEGENDS

Leon Russell

Bob Childers

Tom Skinner

John Moreland

John Fullbright

Jason Boland

Hoyt Axton (Ok State grad… wrote Never Been to Spain… And all the good Three Dog Night songs)

JJ Cale

Gary Busey (played drums for Willie Nelson before getting into acting)

Parker Milsap

Hell… Ray Wylie Hubbard wrote a song so good, Redneck Mother, they named that big lake east of Dallas after him.

Frankly the original list is trash, except for Garth.

Color Me Badd > Garth.

Well… Leon Russell wrote songs with the Rolling Stones. Woody Guthrie invented the protest song.

I dig old school hip hop and r&b from time to time… But “I wanna sex you up” isn’t quite the needle mover that Wild Horses is.


So… no one else is going to throw Hanson into the hat? :rofl:


I do love me some MMBOP

Jason Boland is the best Red Dirt songwriter of all of them. Fight me.

I love Boland, but I watched him get so sideways he couldn’t remember his own songs so many times I eventually gave the nod to the other guys lol

Are you confusing him with Felker!?
