These Were The Top 40 Songs on Texas and Red Dirt Radio in 2017
2017 was a good year in the Texas, Red Dirt scene. Up-and-comers Dalton Domino and John Baumann displayed their songwriting prowess with a couple of breakthrough-projects in Corners, and Proving Grounds respectively.
In the Fall Turnpike Troubadours released their highly anticipated album, A Long Way From Your Heart, not long after Josh Abbott Band released their horn-infused Until My Voice Goes Out. Jon Wolfe kept it country with Any Night in Texas, and although it was released in 2016, Noise Complaint from Koe Wetzel established him as a force in the Texas scene this year.
And let's not forget that in February, Aaron Watson shocked America for the second time in three years, when Vaquero shot to the top of the Billboard Country Chart. The album's first single "Outta Style" became the Honky Tonk Kid's biggest career hit -- peaking inside the Top 15 on Billboard country radio.
With great albums come great radio singles, so let's get into it. These are the 40 most played songs on Texas and Red Dirt radio according to CDX Traction Texas. Where'd your favorite land?
