Today's Texas Quick Pick - David Oakleaf and The Open Road - Nashville, Tn.

Since I started doing "Today's Texas Quick Pick" a couple of weeks ago, it's become one of the most popular postings each day....and it should be.  It gives me a chance to let you guys know what's coming in, and what I'm listening to.  I always enjoy opening up the "ol' mailbag" each day, and finding terrific new music to toss out there for everyone to get to know.  Today's no different.  That's why I'm offering up a second "TTQP".

I got an email this morning asking to check out the music of "David Oakleaf and The Open Road", a four piece out of Nashville, Tn.

Looking through their website, reading a bit about the band, and listening to their music... This is a group of guys that fall into that category of "...needing a bigger stage."  The songwriting is "story-telling" (Check out "Ride Cowboy Ride") and that's the way it should be when you're talking about true Country Music or it's twin, "Alternative Country Music", it's still the same bloodline.  David and the band have put it all together.
They've shared the stage with the likes of Little Big Town, Gloriana and a Texas favorite...Pat Green.  Their sound has been called a cross between Gary Allan and Chris LeDoux and, also, a cross between The Rolling Stones and Steve Earle.  Judge for yourself... I hear a little early "Cross Canadian" in there too... Enjoy!

"David Oakleaf and The Open Road" would be at home on any Texas stage, honky tonk or venue, and would be a great addition to your music collection.  I'm looking forward to hearing more, and see these guys get to the top.  Request them to your favorite terrestrial or internet station!  I know I'll be including them in a podcast real soon...  Keep it rollin'!
