From Dave Wheaton -
"Coming Home. The show about independent Texas music. Lucky Boyd said it all on the very second episode, 'It's a better connection with the music...in all the music world out there, we are 'coming home' to Texas to redefine our passion for music and our connection with independent Texas music.' Coming Home and MyTexasMusic.com are parallel in what they want for independent Texas music. We want people to have the chance to hear and own great music. Pure music, without a major record label mucking everything up! It started with a box of CDs Lucky and Jinelle Boyd brought me. I'd only heard of a couple of these fifty or so artists, and most of the CDs didn't have that familiar 'polish' to them, but the music was all legit. Different genres. Different influences. It was all so...different. I set out to call and interview some of these artists. Not knowing exactly where to start, I pulled out a few, contacted them, and we were off and running. Fast-forward more than one year later, over 50 shows in the books, well over 130 guests on the show, and a Texas Music Award nomination later. We've had some artists visit our fashionable Grapeland studios to play songs for the show. The Coming Home staff (Amos Van Horn, Carla Leigh Turner and I) felt that these performances were worthy of putting on a disc to commemorate a successful first year. Then we thought why not sell this compilation to benefit MyTexasMusic.com? They deserve a ton of credit for helping the show to be an immediate success, and their website needs a little work. Okay...a LOT of work. (Editor's note: We concur.) When you buy this CD, not only do you get the satisfaction of listening to some damn good independent Texas music, you support it. You've become part of Coming Home, and a part of MyTexasMusic.com. Whether you play an instrument or not, you're a part of the music scene that breeds a bottomless supply of talent, uniqueness, attitude, and excellence. Thanks for buying. Enjoy."
