The only thing to do tonight in Dallas…

CMATD at Adair’s Saloon

If you are in Texas, have good taste in music and enjoys having are a good time, cancel your Friday night plans and head over to the Prophet Bar in Dallas to see Chad McBride and the Drifters rock out!

Chad McBride and the Drifters is a local band of some awesome guys and -to me- sound like a mix between Cross Canadian Ragweed and Reckless Kelly. Even better, the drummer is a crazy Mexican. 🙂

For more deets, go here: Chad McBride and the Drifters First Day of Summer Party!

To hear them, go here: Waiting on Life to Slow Down and You, Texas and Me EP


See you tonight!




Broaden Your Horizons

I’ll admit, I am one of those people that needs to know what someone is into before hanging out with them. I met a guy a while back, and thank God for Facebook because I saw his interests on his profile and country music was no where to be found. It was all international music which was kind of odd, but I’m not judging! I was just no longer interested.

Now, I’m not close minded when it comes to music- I promise. My taste in music is actually very eclectic. My iPod has everything from Britney Spears to Chris Ledoux, Marc Anthony, Pearl Jam and Big Sean. However, I pretty much live for Real Texas Country music. I have a lot of blog readers that don’t live in Texas, so I can somewhat understand if you’re not the biggest country music fan ever. On the other hand, if you live in Texas, you should have at least 20 country songs in your iTunes.

Here is a peek into my iTunes library:


I recently turned a non country music goer onto a country song and he actually liked it, which is huge considering he is a HOUSE music guy. I’m pretty sure his life changed that day.

If you need to broaden your iTunes library or just want a few good new songs, here are a few of my “Real Texas” favorites:

Touch by Josh Abbott Band
Taste by Josh Abbott Band
Oh, Tonight by Josh Abbott Band

Always the Love Songs by Eli Young Band
