Weblogs: He's an Okie

(via Max Johnson's O Tempora, O Mores! for my Okie friends) "I first moved to Oklahoma from California 15 years ago. I have resisted completely embracing being an Okie. However, I am now Okiefied. I have become hooked on Red Dirt music. This music has come from the Oklahoma and Texas bar scene. Many of these bands have come from Stillwater (I won't hold this against them). My favorite band at the moment is Cross Canadian Ragweed. They hail from the same town as Garth Brooks. However, these guys haven't sold out (yet) to commercialism. I still can't believe that my soul music loving self has become hooked on music with its roots in country. What's next, a love for all things okra?"
