I know that Zane Lewis' modern country sound isn't exactly up most most of our readers' alley. Hell, it's not really up our alley, either (although I was, admittedly, a modern country apologist for a time in college...it's how I started to get into Gary Allan's music). But Lewis is a local musician and his track "Southland" is our pick of the best off of his new self-titled disc, which we clued you into last month when we mentioned his album release party.

Now, Lewis has three more shows in the (extended) area this weekend--a radio performance in Sulphur Springs tomorrow night, an afternoon in-store at Hastings in Greenville on Saturday and then a night show at The Drunken Mule in Commerce that same night--which is as good an excuse as any for us to finally post the short cut of "Southland" that he sent our way a few weeks back for you to download. So, here it is:

Zane Lewis -- "Southland"

Sounds like Trace Adkins meets Montgomery Gentry to me, which, if you've ever watch Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders on CMT--and I know you have--you know there's a market for.

But the question here lies in what exactly you guys think of the track. I'm really curious to hear your thoughts on this one. I'm sure Zane Lewis is, too, actually. -- Pete Freedman

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
