No. 17 (Winter 2004)
2003 Year in Review: The past year in Texas music was just flat-out crazy. Country radio banned the Dixie Chicks, Willie "Herbal American" Nelson teamed up with Toby "Angry American" Keith, a Destiny's Child became a household name big enough to drop her last name, and millions tuned in each week for the latest household dose of loveable ditzy blonde pop princess named Jessica.
YIR – Jessica Simpson: The Dallas-born pop singer and star of MTV's Newlyweds really is "as seen on TV." Laugh at her all you want, and she'll laugh with you. Then she'll want to hug you. No wonder America finds her simply irresistible.
Also in YIR:
