April: The Texas Six Pack

6 hot songs from Texas area artists


Hello friends! We’re the ladies of Stone Cold Country with the April edition of the #TexasSixPack. This time around there are seven songs from amazing Texas artists that you should add to your playlists, radio station, blogs and share across social media.

The Texas Six Pack was a feature we created in late 2018 for our Stone Cold Country radio show. Due to the incredible popularity of the segment, in January 2023,we decided to roll it out as a stand alone podcast with new episodes on the 23rd of each month.

Before we dig in, we like to share some noteworthy news from the longhorn state.

Yes, great news about Gruene Hall. Firstly it is still going strong after 145 years in existence, good god. Yes, and It is Texas' oldest continually operating dance hall. Some friends in Texas are very particular. I made the mistake of calling it a honky tonk because the rest of us call any place that plays country music and serves alcohol a honky tonk, don't you know.

And well, I was promptly corrected which I do appreciate. It’s great to know what the regional nuanced differences are. Anyway, The Academy of Country Music has nominated Green Hall for the Club of The Year Award. How awesome is that!

You can watch the show at The Ford Center at the Star in Frisco on May 11 and or on Amazon Prime.

And Willie Nelson will turn 90 on April 29th, wow! There will be a huge bash for Willie at the Hollywood Bowl with over 30 artists honoring the Texas legend including Chris Stapleton, The Lumineers, and Kacey. It’s a two day event, and you can still get tickets at the

One thing Willie said in a recent interview that I totally agree with is that a good song is a good song regardless of genre! And that’s why he sings in so many different styles of music and has been awarded for those collaborations as well. Absolutely.

Allright, well I’m ready to hear some great music from Texas!

We’re going to close out with Robert Ray- More Than You’ll Never Know which is sitting right outside of the top 10 on the Texas Regional Radio Report.
