Blue Water Highway Band hails (currently) from the city of Kyle, Tx. Sean Ericson and myself like to keep our eyes, and ears open when it comes to new musical artists. Some are good, others not so good. Then there's the highly elusive, and occasional GREAT! These guys are the real deal.

This is just one of the many reasons that I love Tex

William Clark Green knew at age 13 that he would pursue a career writing and singing songs. He attended college at Texas Tech, and played in front of a crowd as often as he could. I discovered WCG a few years ago, like I usually do, with someone sharing the video for the song, "Caroline" from his first album Misunderstood. I was blown away by this young man from Flint Texas.
