Except for the last few, these are all by Texas singer/songwriters. Most are more on the mellow-side. The songs are hidden gems--not their most famous. It would be great the hear them covered by Blitzen Trapper or Denver... Thanks,

Finally..., another great couple of Texans. If you guys ever get the chance to do an awesome duet with a lady friend..., check out Willie Nelson & Tracy Nelson's 1974 version of "After the Fire is Gone" (which was a cover of Conway Twitty & Loretta Lynn's hit, I believe). Here's a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clwwxLc0bg8. Good stuff.
