Listen to OKLAHOMA HOME BREW by Hank Thompson & His Brazos Valley Boys.
This week I thought I would go back through some of our past mixes just for fun. The mix we did in 2003 might be the best one and most popular. It was called "One More Round, Bartender...It's Christmas." Basically a collection of some of my favorite country music tunes, so it's heavy on the classics.
And it's also heavy on songs about Oklahoma (understandable if you know where I grow up). I started tracking down as many "Oklahoma" songs as I could a few years ago, basically as soon as I started going to allmusic.com. There, you can enter in song titles, or parts of song titles, so I would enter in "oklahoma" in the search function and just write down any tracks that looked interesting. I eventually found this CD at J&R music, I'm pretty sure in August 2003. As soon as I heard it, I knew I had the first track for the Christmas CD that year.
