Texas overflows with music. Go out in any city on any night, and you're bound to see hear multiple shows as you wander the streets. At the very least, you'll find locals strumming guitar and singing at the bars. They might even ask you to join, which you should, assuming you have the skills to keep up.

Joe, I see you love your state as I love mine. I was born, raised, and will die in Nebraska. Farm land is my passion for scenery. City life doesn't appeal too much to me even though I live in urban city U.S.A. I like green with rows of corn growing in huge fields. It's true we don't have any pro teams here in Nebraska but I suspect everyone knows about Nebraska football and the College World Series for baseball. I've been told that on a per capita basis that we have more restaurants than any other city in the US. They range from every kind of fast food to high end tux dining. My tastes and pocket book fall some where in the middle of those two extremes. Actually, I prefer eating at home out of the back yard garden or from the preserved garden items. I guess the best place to live is where a person has the fondest memories from child hood. I visited Texas many times and have always had a wonderful experience. All the things you have written about are indeed true. ***** Have a great Texas living day.
