    The Co-Write: Episode 100 - Our top 15 Texas Music Songs w/ Brad Beheler

    Happy 100th episode of The Co-Write! 
    We are back with a podcast that needs little introduction.
    This week we compile a list of our top 15 favorite songs in Texas music. 
    This list is comprised of songs released after the year 1995.  An era we refer to as the post Pat era of Texas music.  Joining us this week is the host emeritus of The Co-Write, the great Brad Beheler.  We couldn’t have done this one without him.  
    We hope you enjoy our lists, and hope that you send us your thoughts, or maybe even your lists.

    Thew Co-Write: Episode 94 - w/ Matt Hillyer

    Thew Co-Write: Episode 94 - w/ Matt Hillyer

    To begin any career at the age of 12 is no small feat.  To choose music as that career from such an early age makes it even more daunting.  Matt Hillyer did just that.  Diving headfirst into a career than now spans three over three decades, Matt has proven how the early recognition of what he was supposed to do with his life, coupled a relentless determination to see the years of work rewarded, delivers the longevity so many musicians seek.  
    We had a great hang with the frontman of the venerable Dallas band 1100 Springs.  One that was a long time coming.  On this episode of The Co-Write we hit on Matt’s early beginnings running around Texas with acts twice his age, how a style that blends multiple influences can have a positive impact growing a fanbase, the importance of stage presence, what it means to be a writer, and Matt shares a few great stories from a career that any singer/songwriter should be envious of.

    The Co-Write: Episode 93 - w/ Josh Crutchmer Author of the New Book, "Red Dirt"

    We have an all new episode of The Co-Write this week featuring Josh Crutchmer.  Josh is the author of the new book, “Red Dirt:  Roots Music Born in Oklahoma, Raised in Texas, and At Home Anywhere.”  
    Donovan and I were lucky enough o receive an advanced copy of the book and we both really enjoyed it.  It goes into great detail about the beginning of Oklahoma’s Red Dirt music scene and includes interviews with numerous artists who began, cultivated, and expanded that scene over the decades. 
    You can find out more about the book at www.reddirtbook.com, and it will be released to all major book retailers on September 19, 2020.   There are various artist editions for sale on the website, and we think it makes a great addition to your library.

    The Co-Write: Episode 91 - w/ Mike McClure

    The Co-Write: Episode 91 - w/ Mike McClure

    Today we welcome Mike McClure to The Co-Write! McClure is on every short list of the best songwriters around. He has well over 10 records to his credit as an artist and scores of others at the helm as producer for groups like Cross Canadian Ragweed, Turnpike Troubadours, Whiskey Myers among many others.  
    Any history book written about the Red Dirt and Texas Music scene would undoubtedly have a chapter dedicated to McClure and his influence on those who have followed him. McClure is set to release his next project in the next few months (exact release date TBD) and he seems genuinely excited about what he has put together. “It's about finding that truth and love really are worth fighting for. And what can save us,” McClure says of his upcoming record “Looking Up.”
