The Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co. Presents: BEER DRINKERS & HELL RAISERS Join us for some good times, music, and beer. Free Show. No Cover. Happy Hour All Night Long! Tex Smith was born and raised in Texas, but the roots of his sound spread far beyond his home state. He likes to say that his music “blends country, roots rock, singer-songwriter style and folk into one big flavorful pot of stew.” "I’m especially fond of Tex’s train songs, they have a certain lonely feel to them that I’m very drawn to. While he’s never dour, Tex can be quite sentimental, he has the ability to make you almost as chilly as the characters of which he sings about." - Murry Hammond (Old 97’s) “Smith’s sound is equal parts Johnny Cash, Roger Miller, and Ramsay Midwood through a Sun Records filter”; - Linc Leifeste.
