Texas Country Music

Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, Kris Kristofferson, & Townes Van Zant are the godfathers of the progressive Texas Country scene that sprung up around Austin in the 1970s. When Nelson moved back to Texas to escape the artistic constraints of Nashville, he and a loose group of confederates were seen as the leaders of the Outlaw movement.
