New Song “This Dirt’s Still Red” Explains Why Texas Soil Has a Red Tint to it

A couple of weeks ago singer/songwriter Adam Fears dropped the KEAN studios and played us his new music from his recently released C.D. I asked Fears to play something that he found comfort in when he was alone on the road in between gigs and somewhat homesick. What came out of those speakers next, blew me away. It was a song called “This Dirt’s Still Red” it not only explains why we have red soil in the Lone Star State, but it’s a brief history lesson as well.

Most of us Texans have heard the Lone Star State referred to as (from time to time) the “red-dirt state” and then there’s “red-dirt music” which in most instances is referring to music made in Texas by Texans. Some even call our dirt “red clay” nonetheless, there is a reason for our soils red tint and Adam Fears put it in a song.

Adam FearsĀ  had never recorded this song before, but I bugged him to record it and get me a copy. So if you missed the interview here is the song that he sang for us on KEAN 105 a couple of weeks ago. I like it and think it might do well on the radio. What I really want to know is, do you like it? Listen to it and please share your honest opinion on it below.
