Songs About Texas Towns

Is anybody going to San Antone? Gotcha covered.




It’s no secret that Texas has produced a multitude of great musicians — think Buddy Holly, Willie Nelson and Bob Wills, for starters — but the Lone Star State is also the topic of many musical compositions. 

From Brownsville to Dumas and Texarkana to El Paso, the towns we live in and travel through have inspired songs through the generations.
