Hello friends! I’m Sana, and I’m Anna. We’re the ladies of Stone Cold Country with a fresh edition of the #TexasSixPack.
This time around there are seven songs from artists with southwestern roots 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 former 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.
But first a little country music news.
How many of us watched the George & Tammy series? Well, there is a lawsuit now because George Richey’s widow, who by the way owns most of Tammy’s estate. She inherited it when George Richey died. Well she says his portrayal was “negative and disparaging”. She’s suing Showtime due to a 2019 settlement agreement that allegedly barred Wynette’s daughter, Georgette Jones, from making disparaging statements about Richey. The agreement was not with Showtime, so therefore they can’t be subject to that agreement. It will be interesting to see what happens.
Texas enjoyed one of the nation’s strongest and fastest-growing labor markets in 2023.
The Texas labor market ended 2023 with record-breaking job growth and a robust civilian labor force that helped drive the state to new heights last year, according to the latest employment datafrom the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
All right Texas!
Well let’s kick things off, Louisiana's pride & Joy Tim Mcgraw , One Bad Habit is a sweet song about embracing your loved one, with their flaws and all. Many can relate to being the “wild side” in their partner’s life, and having a bond that’ll (hopefully) never break. Aw, here it goes..
Corey Kent, This Heart Written by Jacob Hackworth, Michael Tyler, Thomas Archer produced by Christ Farren. A song about how heartbreak and addiction can take a major toll on a person’s soul. Bixby, OK

Brad Miles from Shallowater, TX, w/ Winters. It has that 80’s John Mellencamp feel to it.I think they called it Heartland Rock. Let’s give it a spin.

Good story too, here’s Cody.
