Last Night: Eli Young Band At Reliant Stadium

Eli Young Band RodeoHouston, Reliant Stadium March 5, 2012

Texas country fans ain't your average, run-of-the-mill country fans. We're not referring to country lovers who live in Texas, either. When we speak of Texas country, we're talking about the strain of country music that's reared on the small-town farms of the Lone Star State.

We know a thing or two about Texas country fans because we lived in Huntsville for four years. They're dip-totin', hemi-drivin', beer-drinkin' folks who are adamant about Texas secession and even more adamant about their local music.

During the time we were in Huntsville, countless Texas country artists came through town to the Jolly Fox or Shenanigans, including Monday's performers, Eli Young Band, who recorded their live album at the Fox in 2006.
