Songs that Speak of Texas

March 04, 2019

It’s true that everything is bigger in Texas, and the music here is no exception. Texas singers and songwriters, along with a plethora of musical artists from all over the world, have paid frequent tribute to the Lone Star State with some impressive lyrics, and song titles that are chock full of mentions of the state, as well as its various towns and cities. From Amarillo to Abilene, from Dallas to Houston, from Fort Worth and Lubbock, and Galveston to Austin, you’re sure to find a song title about it.

From 1959, when Marty Robbins sang of El Paso, to Waylon Jennings’ 1977 “Luckenbach, Texas,” the Doobie Brothers’ hit “China Grove,” and George Strait’s “Amarillo by Morning,” the tradition has continued until there are more songs about Texas than you can shake a stick at. As for the state itself, consider Lubbock’s native son Mac Davis, and his song, “Texas In My Rear View Window,” Butch Hancock’s “West Texas Waltz,” Clay Walker’s “Texas Swing,” Tanya Tucker’s “Texas (When I Die)”and Shooter Jennings’ “Do You Love Texas?” Take a listen - no matter the genre or the era, you’re bound to find a song about somewhere in Texas!
