Yeah, you like Texas Music, but are you fanatical about it? I have been thinking about the similarities between all of the fans in this big Texas family, and there are only three things we all want: 1) Good. 2) Country. 3) Music.

This is something we have in abundance in our scene, which some grasp onto much harder than others -- you know who you are.

Here are the Top 10 signs You Are a True Texas Music Fanatic:

1. You find yourself constantly explaining "real country" music.

...and have had this conversation multiple times:
Friend: "What kind of music do you listen to?"
Self: "Country!"
Friend: *grimace*
Self: "Wait, let me explain..."

2. You regularly cancel plans because your favorite band is in town.
