Here are the best country artists and bands from Texas. Country music has been an important part of Texas' heritage. In fact, the genre is so popular in the state, a new form of country music emerged. Texas Country is a subgenre that fuses traditional root sounds with the styling of outlaw country. The music can best be described as having a working man's approach with witty undertones. Some of the most notable artists who are part of the Texas Country movement include Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Chris Knight. With that being said, there are plenty of country singers from Texas who fuse all kinds of influences into their songs. 

Roy Orbison is one of the most famous musicians to come out of the Lone Star State of all time. He is best known for his hits, including "Pretty Woman" and "Only the Lonely." A more modern artist who has put country music in Texas on the map is Kacey Musgraves. She carved a niche for herself in the industry for her straight-shooting lyrics and rebellious nature. Some popular country groups from Texas include Eli Young Band, Josh Abbott Band, and The Great Divide.

This list of Texas country singers is the most complete you will find. You will find artists from various decades, so no matter how old you are, you will find an artist you appreciate here. Vote for your favorites.
