Oklahoma Music

  1. I saw a reference to Oklahoma singers as an addendum to another post. Since Oklahoma in in the middle of the USA and home to my loved ones:
    Do you especially like an Oklahoma singer/songwriter?
    Ideas:
    Reba Mc Intyre, Garth Brooks, Roger Miller, Leon Russell, Hoyte Axton, Pattie Page, or Merle Haggard?
    How about Woody Guthrie? "This Land is Your Land", "So Long its Been Good t' Know Ya", "Tom Joad", and more than a thousand others!
    Now either chastise me for those missed or tell why you don't like any.

    Silly Me! I thought your thread was in reference to the Rogers and Hammerstein musical.

    I was watching Biography last week, and Reba was on. Her Dad said it was a good thing she could sing, because she couldn't race barrels. Reba said the same thing too. There are some really good musicians from Oklahoma. Of course, that depends on your musical tastes. Fortunately I'm fairly eclectic with regards to my musical preferences.

    I've really liked Vince Gill's music ever since his Pure Prarie League days.

    LOL! I thought the same thing! I have no idea who is from Oklahoma and who is not. I do like good old Woody Guthrie though, and since Pure Prairie League did that song about me, they are okay in my book too.

    Oklahoma isn't really known for its musicians from what i have gathered from living here almost a year, but football coaches...that's another story.

    Loved the musical.
    Every time Shirley Jones appears from 'The Partridge family' to hosting Ed Sullivan re-runs I remember her in the movie version of OKLAHOMA.
