Tommy Alverson / Press

“Arlington's Tommy Alverson should be the permanent face of the independent Texas country music movement. He embodies all the hallmarks of the sound, and the mind-set. Alverson is Lone Star proud. He's artistically beholden to nobody but himself. He loves Americana music, that decidedly Texas blend of country, swing, Tex-Mex, Southern rock, folk and blues. He writes songs, but also has no qualms about recording good material from somebody else's pen. He's made a living playing music his way. Texas One More Time is Alverson's ninth disc in a career that has been incredibly steady. He's carved a livelihood playing and recording the music he cherishes in the state he calls home. That's the epitome of successful. He doesn't need anything else.”

“Tommy Alverson Texas One More Time Tommy Alverson exploded on the Texas country music scene around the same time as Jack Ingram and Pat Green, with a similar mission — carry the torch for the honky-tonkers and cosmic cowboys of yesteryear in the beer joints of today,but with a couple of decades of life experience under his belt. Producer and collaborator Walt Wilkins keeps everything new-dime shiny but never too slick, and Alverson lets his husky, resonant voice rip on highlights including a muscular take on Clark’s “Broken Hearted People,” a swinging “It’s Hard To Say For Sure,” and a swaggering cover of/tribute to his late amigo Rusty Wier on “Slow, Stoned, & Rugged.” At a glance, the cover looks like it could be just another Texas souvenir; upon closer listen, it’s a snapshot of a dancehall pro in his prime. ”
