Frankly, Hudson Moore's rising stock in the Texas country scene seems like a pure accident. Even apart from his quarterback good looks, the 22-year-old Fort Worth native's music is much closer to pop troubadours like Jason Mraz than cowboy-hatted hunks Bart Crow or Josh Abbott. With an abundance of frisky guitars, B-3 organ and even horns, his 2012 debut Fireworks has plenty of snappy tunes, just not a whole lot of twang. No matter, though – Moore is undeniably a star, he just happens to be a little misplaced at the moment. Don't expect him to be playing dance halls much longer.
