    Should replace Tommy James with Bob Seager and you’ve probably got the winning list.

    George Strait has more business on that list than Robert Earl Keen and Lyle Lovett. If you're going to put the Texas Country subgenre on there, you've got to include Guy Clark and Jerry Jeff Walker.

    Clarksdale, Mississippi could beat most states. Sam Cooke, Ike Turner, Rick Ross, Nate Dogg, John Lee Hooker, and several others were born there. A shit ton of others (including Robert Johnson) lived there.

    Guy Clark is certainly on my Mount Rushmore. George Strait is a hat signing a shitload of Dean Dillon songs, and belongs nowhere near this list.

    And Jerry Jeff is from New York.

    Ronald Crosby is from New York; Jerry Jeff is from Texas...

    Either way, the point was that Jerry Jeff had a huge role in developing the uniquely Texas sound. Robert Earl Keen, while I like him, has no business on a Texas Mt. Rushmore.

    There’s a Robert Johnson doc on Netflix that I added to my list and need to watch. Essentially that he was so good that the legend is he made a deal with the devil.

    Agree on Robert Earl not belonging, although he’s a pretty big deal her to a lot of people. Disagree on Jerry Jeff’s influence.

    Robert Earl Davis on the other hand....:blessed:

    Mississippi could make a Mount Rushmore of blues legends before even considering Elvis and Cooke

    Robert Johnson
    Muddy Waters
    BB King
    Son House
