Narratives and songs about Texas are never lacking in state pride and love – heaving on the pride. Country music, in particular, has been no slouch in hit songs that feature Texas, be it in their titles, their lyrics, or by the singers who are from the Lone Star State themselves. It may be hard to narrow down a list of “top” country music songs about Texas since the sheer multitude of them is quite overwhelming, but here is a comparable list of what we feel are songs that celebrate the state and our love for it, and they’re in no particular order, but they do rank highly in our charts!

Written by Shane McAnally and Brandy Clark, “Take Me to Texas” was recorded by George Strait for the soundtrack of “Texas Rising,” a mini-series by The History Channel. In an interview posted by Songfacts, George was quoted as saying, “I’ve always said Texas is the greatest state, you know, bar none…I was born here and raised in Texas, and the only other time I ever lived anywhere else was when I was in the Army, and so I wouldn’t think of calling anyplace else home. This is my home,” he said. “When they asked me if I would think about doing this song for the soundtrack or wherever it’s gonna be in the Texas Rising – it’s a film for the History Channel, it’s a series, and it’s really cool… It’s about The Alamo and the history of how Texas came about and all of that, so…and the song is great. I love it. So, it didn’t take me long to decide, ‘Yeah, I want to do it.'”
