Texas is known as a mecca for country music. The Hill Country in particular is often credited with being the capital of “Texas Country” music, which is classified as a blend of modern country mixed with outlaw country music. Be that as it may, many Texas music enthusiasts credit The Hill County as one of the birthplaces of “Outlaw Country”.
Austin, tucked in the heart of the Hill Country, has long been dubbed “The Live Music Capital of the World,” and thus has produced handfuls of local homegrown musical goodness. Austin also attracts many aspiring national and international musicians, and the surrounding beauty of the Hill Country begs them to stay. Israel Nash is one of the latter.
Nash, a Missouri born singer/songwriter, moved to New York to get his chops up, performing at various spots in the East Village. He cut his first two albums in New York. The albums were well-received in Europe. Needing a change of scenery, Nash and his wife resettled in Dripping Springs.
