    Country Music Time Machine: World Series Edition

    Right now Texans are in the middle of football season, and therefore even attempting to talk about any other pro sports amounts to ripping a wet fart into the wind -- unless it's the Rockets, and most of us Houstonians can't watch them on TV anyway.

    Five Waylon Jennings Albums You Should Own

    "Ladies love outlaws," Waylon Jennings once sang, and well knew. Yes they do, and so do plenty of fellers, who may love the late Littlefield-born musician -- who was a losing coin flip away from being on Buddy Holly's doomed plane in February 1959 -- even more. Jennings would have been 76 this past ... More >>

    Jailhouse Rock: When Artists Face Hard Time

    Nothing earns an musician instant street cred quite like a night or two in the pokey.

    UPDATED: Memorable Houston Concerts of 1992

    UPDATE (2:03 p.m.): Alice In Chains was advertised but dropped out, and was replaced with Australia's Baby Animals. The year 1992 was an important one for me as far as Houston concerts are concerned: It's the first time I went to a concert within the Houston city limits, the "Outside Broadcast" leg ... More >>

    Marty Stuart's American Odyssey Does Houston

    Marty Stuart is definitely one of the more interesting also-rans of Travis Tritt-era popular country. He only had a couple of real hits - "Hillbilly Rock" and "Little Things" both reached No. 8 in 1990 - but he's got a great pedigree.
