Happy Texas Independence Day!

On March 2, 1836, The Convention of 1836 declared Texas' independence from Mexico. The meeting was held at Washington-on-the Brazos on a cold, blustery day. The Alamo was under siege by Santa Anna's army and it is unknown if the Texians in the Alamo found out about the declaration before their final day. We like to think they knew and had a real purpose to fight for. Texas has more recently declared independence from the national music scene, Nashville in particular. Buy Texas Music!
My favorite songs with "Texas"or "Texan" in the lyrics:

"Texas In My Rearview Mirror"- Mac Davis (Lubbock)
"I Like Texas"- Pat Green (Waco)
"Luckenbach, Texas"- Waylon Jennings (Littlefield), Willie Nelson (Abbott)
"West Texas Teadrops"- Old 97's- Murray Hammond (Boyd)
"Amarillo Highway" - Terry Allen (Lubbock)

Here are a few more, but not all.

So go out tonight or this afternoon and get you a chicken fried steak and a cold Shiner or Lone Star and enjoy your independence. God Bless Texas!
