When you think of country-folk songwriters from Texas, you probably think of pickers and singers like Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Flatlanders, and Terry Allen. Not to mention Willie and Waylon and the boys.

Here are a couple of younger singer-songwriters from the Lone Star State whose music is definitely informed by all those greats, even though they don’t sound much like your typical Texas troubadours. They both started out as “one-man bands” and are in their late 30s, and I suspect they share a lot of the same fans. But they don’t sound much like your typical one-man bands, and, come to think of it, they don’t sound much like each other.
