CJ here and about 8 years ago I found myself working at a radio station in West Texas. A couple of hours before my first air shift, I was informed that my show featured “Texas Country” and handed a box of CDs, full of artists that I’d never heard of.
As a Louisiana native, if you had asked me right then what “Texas Country” was, I would have said George Strait, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings. What I did not know was that there was a whole new genre of music that I had yet to discover.
I’ve always been a fan of many different types of music and discovering great new music gets me excited. This box was a goldmine of discovery and featured the latest singles from amazing artists like Kevin Fowler, Aaron Watson, Turnpike Troubadours, and Whiskey Myers.
Each week, I hope to share that experience with you as we take a 2-hour trip through the best in Red Dirt, Texas Country, and Americana music on The Red Dirt Ride!
Listen to the Red Dirt Ride on Mustang 107.1, Sundays from 6p-8p.
