Best Of Dallas

The 20 Best Songs Ever Written About Dallas

Oh, Dallas. You give us all the feels. Sometimes we love you, sometimes we get tripped up on your oversized ego. But mostly we just love you, and in particular, we dig your music. We're not the only ones, either: Artists from around the world have been inspired to write songs about this city, whether it was because of the skyline, the honky tonks or even just the groupies. (Yes, we said groupies.)

So we've pulled together 20 of our favorite songs about Dallas, songs that are as diverse as the city and the people who live in it: blues, country, hip-hop, punk rock and rock 'n' roll. They're not always pretty, but when you put them all together, they represent something about what makes this place great.
