"I didn't really change anything. I came back to Texas when the music scene was already going on. Everybody says I started something, but I didn't start anything so much as join an already growing movement, a legion of people who like good music, no matter what kind, who like to listen to and play whatever they want to." --Willie Nelson "Texas music is from the heart, and it's music about people. It's not necessarily music to be on the radio or music to sell records--it's music about real feelings. That's what I try to do when I write a song." --Lyle Lovett "Texans never have conformed to the norms, so to speak, and they never have toed the line. They always have been a little rebellious and a little rambunctious, and it's hard to get them all dressed up and make them sit in any one place for any length of time." --Gary P. Nunn "I love Texas music. Texas has everything, and that's my description of Texas music. It's everything I love. It has spawned everybody from Flaco Jiminez to T-Bone Walker to Janis Joplin. It runs the gamut." --Marcia Ball
