Robert Earl Keen "I would love to have been one of the great singers in the world -- like Vince Gill or someone like that -- even if it was just for one hour," says Robert Earl Keen. "But I really feel like my gift is writing songs. That's just there and it's always been there. I don't know why, but I always have stories -- they don't all have to be true, just good. If I could put a subtitle on my best songs, it would be 'based on a good story.'" With his latest Lost Highway album, The Rose Hotel (which hit #1 on the Americana charts), Keen re-confirms his place among the Lone Star State's great storytellers, capable of painting rich, poignant landscapes worthy of Cormac McCarthy and spinning satirical yarns that'd do Kinky Friedman proud. The disc's rough-hewn tone -- it's one of the more immediate, organic efforts in Keen's varied catalog -- emphasizes both ends of that emotional spectrum, with Band-styled organ washes dappling the evocative title track and a hoedown-worthy breakdown propelling the wry "Wireless in Heaven" to its conclusion.

It's what helped him turn his passion for music into his post-basketball profession, leading the Ray Johnston Band, which just completed a new album, AGAINST THE GRAIN. And most of all, it's what kept him going as he battled leukemia. Five times. More Info
Sunny Sweeney True to her Texas honky-tonk roots, Sunny Sweeney has never been a singer of what you'd call "soft" country songs the kind you might turn to for easy comfort and or quiet Sunday afternoons with the family. Hell, you can tell just by the titles of her first two albums Heartbreaker's Hall of Fame and Concrete that she reaches straight for the hard stuff. So when this woman sees fit to name her third album Provoked, you better believe she's not about to start playing coy now. No, this is where the real hurtin' starts, and Sweeney's showing no mercy least of all to herself. More Info
Shy Blakeman The music community has tried for decades to define country music. Are steel guitars and fiddles required? Or is the essence based in the true-to-life message? Shy Blakeman is an old soul who portrays his own country music heritage on Long Distance Man, his acclaimed third studio album. Blakeman successfully melds together all the rural musical styles from below the Mason-Dixon line in order to create an album that is "so eclectic it's really hard to try and define it by one genre. And that's the way it should be," Blake notes. "But it all still feels within the realm of what country music is and used to be." This unique style developed naturally from a childhood in Wyoming and East Texas, added to years spent in Nashville, New York and LA collaborating with an eclectic group of classic country-rock musicians.

Sam Sliva With roots in rock. blues and country. it's hard to put a label on Sam Sliva and the Good. the Austin based band that released its debut album. SEE YOU AROUND. in the summer of '08. Drawing comparisons to the likes of the Killers. Steve Earle. and Texas legend Robert Earl Keen. Sliva and his trio lack nothing in the way of style. And recently they've had no shortage of compliments either. Texas Music Magazine likened the group to "channel[ing] the best of The Band and the Counting Crows". While flattering associations with multi-platinum musicians might be new to them. it's nothing that Sam Sliva and the Good stumbled upon overnight. The group has been honing its sound for years. playing gigs almost nightly. across Texas and beyond. More Info

Shawn Fussell Texas-born singer/songwriter and guitarist Shawn Fussell isn't afraid of hard work. He proved it in his previous career as a tilesmith, a joint-cracking, back-aching occupation where meticulous craftsmanship is the only acceptable standard. And he has proved it in his musical career, honing his skills and his art over a series of years and self-released albums until he was ready to release a full-fledged debut, Shawn Fussell (2009) that is up to his exacting standards. Working with producer/engineer and musician Eric McKinney (Mark McKinney, the Weary Boys, Colin Gilmore) as well as bassist Tim Casterline and drummer Keith Hernandez, Shawn produced a handful of robust new songs which he paired with re-imagined songs from his previous independent releases to produce a cohesive new sound that fits organically into the Texas Music/Red Dirt country-rock sound of Texas and the Southwest while still keeping its roots in the innovative, genre-crossing tradition of Shawn's musical idols. Heartfelt, lived-in originals like "Why'd You Lie" and "Serenity Song" juxtapose naturally with open-ended rockers such "Days and Daze" and his single, "Ride", which reached the top 30 on the Texas Music Charts. And, as something of a counterpoint to Shawn's first-person approach to songwriting, "Tulia, TX" is a searing account of real-life racial injustice in West Texas. As such, it takes Shawn's songwriting to a new level. More Info

The Statesboro Revue If we're honest, the true weight of any band or artist is chiefly determined by how they translate to us in a live performance setting. Can they breach that intangible border between the stage and the gathered onlookers? Can they slip in like a steady rising state of inebriation, stealing our attention, controlling our emotions and ultimately drawing us into their world? Does their energy continue to vibrate within us well after the last chords have been played and our daily life comes to reclaim us? These are probably some of the questions one writer from Rolling Stone Magazine had running through his head before he proclaimed The Statesboro Revue as one of the highlights of the 2009 South by Southwest Conference and Festival. The Statesboro Revue goes back to 2008, but the evolving vision of front man and primary songwriter Stewart Mann goes back much further. More Info
Sam Riggs and the Night People "Sam Riggs wears a legacy of honest country, makes good rock, writes lyrics that matter and straps on a stage presence second to none." -- Ray Wylie Hubbard Receiving a hand up in this business of music from the likes of Ray Wylie Hubbard is no small accomplishment, and that mentorship and sometimes harsh instruction was not lost on Sam Riggs, who has had the fortunate opportunity to meander through Wylie's cerebral countryside over the last few years. At the time of their meeting, Riggs was already a commercially-viable songwriter with an impressive root system, having sprung from his family's musical genes; but he was still feeding off the unripe fruits of his youth. Through the songwriting school of Hubbard, he learned the time-honored virtue of patience and the aptitude for turning the rough and tumble falls to the ground into a steady, recovered gait.

The Damn Quails The Damn Quails started as a weekly jam session at The Deli in Norman, Oklahoma. Looking back, the fact that the band began so organically, could be considered somewhat of a miracle. At the epicenter of these weekly jams was Bryon White and Gabe Marshall. Both had been playing music in the Oklahoma area for some time, and when these two forces collided the harmony between them was undeniable. Some would say that it is hazardous to put two guys on stage that can write, sing, and play guitar. As everyone knows, egos can get in the way. This wasn't the case with Bryon and Gabe. Their singing, songwriting, and guitar playing utilizing both electric and acoustic guitars, meld together in such a way that it's hard to tell where one starts and the other stops. More Info

Natalie Rose The first time I remember performing, it was on top of my family's coffee table with my back turned to my aunts, uncles, cousins or any one else who'd take time to listen to my renditions of "Coat of Many Colors" and "Somewhere Over The Rainbow". Occasionally, I'd do a big finale with "My Way". They weren't allowed to clap, or I'd cry. I thought clapping was only something you did when someone did a really bad job, but you still wanted to be nice. (Apparently it turns out I was wrong! That's good to know.) Now the first time my parents remember me performing, it was most likely as soon as I could form sentences. I can't remember that far back. More Info

Cody Sparks Band BIO Stop me if you've heard this one. Guy walks into a bar. And now he leads one of the hottest bands in Austin. The end. Actually, that's just the beginning, even though the punchline does tell a key part of this story. The guy we're talking about is Cody Sparks. He heads The Cody Sparks Band, whose raw, spirited music stands out even in the teeming Texas country scene. He's a big, amiable guy who looks right at home onstage. Yet his songs often tell stories about heartbreak -- about the lighter side of broken romance (the playful "My Baby's Gone") or the fury kindled by betrayal (laid out over a foot-stompin' beat on "No Time"). He writes with artful metaphor ("Set in the West") and reckless abandon ("Stilly"). And he finds time to share some of the wisdom handed down him by his grandfather in the wistful, fiddle-laced "Sinners and the Saved." More Info

Dalton Domino For Dalton Domino, music was always present. "It's always been there," he says. "I don't really know anything else." Even as a child, he heard the melodies. And the chords. But always the lyrics — the way artists of all stripes, from punk rockers to traditional country artists, could convey a simple or complex truth with a simple turn of phrase. "That's how I fell in love with music," the Texas-based singer-songwriter says. Creativity and an appreciation for song has been an evolution for Domino. He'd written albums before— and solid, heart-bearing ones like 2015's 1806, at that— but when he sat down for nine months last year and began piecing together what would become Corners, Domino's latest and inarguably most soul-baring effort yet, things felt different.
