Americana Highway - April 2, 2006

Texas Music! Singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State are the showcase this week on WIVK's Americana Highway with Jack Ryan. If you like a little Western Swing mixed in with your Texas Two-Step with a dash of Honky Tonk and maybe even a smidge of the Blues...then this week is your week on The Americana Highway. Jack Ryan will be highlighting some great Texas Tunes including new music from Willie Nelson, The Dixie Chicks, James Hand, Kris Kristofferson, Randy Foster, Copperhead, Lee Roy Parnell and Miranda Lambert. Plus, you'll also hear our tribute to the late great...and Texas native...Buck Owens. The country legend who defined the Bakersfield Sound passed away on March 25th and we'll remember the pride of Sherman, Texas with perhaps his most autobiographical song: "The Streets Of Bakersfield".
