No. 29 (Winter 2007)

The Contender: Fifteen years ago, Jack Ingram was a happy-go-lucky college kid from The Woodlands whose relatively novel idea to put out his own record sparked an entire generation of do-it-yourself Texas songwriters. But after his first two shots at the big time were met with indifference outside of the thriving regional scene he helped put on the map, some folks assumed he'd never have another fighting chance at national success. They figured wrong.

2006 Year in Review: A month-by-month look back at the year in Texas music, including: the Dixie Chicks' sometimes rocky, sometimes triumphant comeback; Kinky Friedman's highly entertaining (but dead serious) run for governor; Willie Nelson's gay cowboy song; Chamillionaire's embrace of "White and Nerdy"; Alejandro Escovedo’s return; the Lone Stars of Rock Star: Supernova; SXSW at 20, ACL Fest at 5; tributes to Clifford, Freddy, Buck, Jesse, Cindy and Don … and more.
