I like it. No stations play it here but when I'm in Texas I like to listen to it

Chris Knight is the most underrated songwriter I know of. They are all three good, but Chris Knight dominates my ipod.

Yup... Red Dirt/ Texas Country is the only modern country I listen to.

All our events have those guys around here. Luke Bryan will be booed off stage. That's for those big city "Country Boys".

It should be noted that Chris Knight comes from the red dirt of western KY, and only moved to TX to try and teach em something. lol

They have tried to call it a lot of things but at the end of the day it's all just anti-Nashville... no matter where you are from.

All 3 of the bands put on a great performance, good for both dancing and listening -- Here's some good songs from each:

Jason Boland -- "Outlaw Band from Oklahoma"; "Pearl Snaps"
TT -- "Hot Summer Day"; "Smoke, gin, and lies"
Knight -- "Framed"; "Becky's Bible"....

That's part of the appeal I think. It reminds me of some of the old school country

I just prefer them to at least be able to carry a tune and not be off key
