Issue 87: 16th Annual Southern Music Issue & CD -- Texas
This product is currently sold out.
The Oxford American is best known for its annual music issue, which includes a gorgeously produced compact disc of songs selected by our editors. As critic Dwight Garner wrote in the New York Times, “These CDs practically belong in the Smithsonian.” Since 2009, the OA's music issues have focused on a different Southern state each year, including Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, and Tennessee. This year, we are thrilled to turn our attention to the astonishing musical legacy of Texas.
In this year's music issue, you can expect new and surprising revelations about early Texas blues, behind-the-scenes stories from the Austin music scene, personal histories from some of the most influential figures in Texas music, and much more. You'll also receive a compilation CD of 25 Texas songs curated by OA music editor Rick Clark with liner notes in the magazine.
