The title of this post is ripped right from an email that popped up in the inbox yesterday afternoon in the wake of this post--and, lo and behold, yep it's from Preston Jones of the Star-Telegram, sharing the links to his favorite concerts and albums of the year, as well as the link to his top 20 Texas albums of the year list, which features 19 North Texas artists and Alejandro Escovedo.
Not sure, exactly, why Jones didn't just call it his Top 20 of North Texas list and pick an album other than Escovedo's, but oh well.

Me? Gotta figure that, if we're including all of Texas, some Austinites who put out some great records this year (Shearwater, Okkervil River, What Made Milwaukee Famous and The Black Angels to name a few) should've made the cut. Either way, the lists are definitely worth checking out. --Pete Freedman
