Texas country music (more popularly known just as Texas country or Texas music) is a rapidly growing sub-genre of American country music. Texas country is known for fusing traditionalist root sounds (similar to neotraditional country) with the outspoken, care-free views of outlaw country. Texas country blends these sub-genres by featuring a “take it or leave it” approach, a “common working man” theme, and witty undertones. These often combine with stripped down music sound. Texas country music can also be called “Red Dirt” country music. Sounds from Texas and Oklahoma have influenced the scene of this particular genre.
