Pat Green's Texan Country Rock bounces around like a Superball in a Bakersfield trampoline factory, without sounding anything like Country Swing. His songs have pop melodies that are as sweet as buttermilk and as catchy as flypaper. Green started writing some of the country songs that he still sings today while attending Texas Tech at the age of 18. His debut album "Dancehall Dreamer" was touted as an independent album, but it wasn't so independent if you consider the fact that his parents funded it. When he only 19 years old, Green played for over 2,000 people at Willie Nelson's Fourth of July picnic. He sold over 200,000 copies of his sixth album, "Songs We Wish We'd Written," without any major label support.
