What is your Favorite Musical Act from Oklahoma? I'd say mine would be a tie between Garth Brooks, The Nixons, and Cross Canadian Ragweed.

There are so many musicians from Oklahoma it would be hard to choose. From the Flaming Lips in OkC to Hanson in Tulsa there is a broad list of musicians from Oklahoma.

You could start with Gene Autry and Will Rogers, through Bob Wills through Toby, Carrie, and Garth.....and lets not forget Rodney Carrington (Ti**ies and Beer!)

We went to a Bluegrass Festival in Southeastern Oklahoma. There were some great musicians there. Can't think of any of the bands, but they are just as talented as any "well-known signed" artist.

So? His parents were born in Oklahoma and so would have Merle if not for the great depression. I think he identified with his roots very well with the song "Proud to be an Okie from Muskogee."

At least they weren't Texans.........too many of them turned out like David Allen Coe......mediocre talent, an inflated ego, petty, and living in the past.......

Tell me something, D-towner, do you guys still say "Remember the Alamo"? or have you moved into the next century yet?

Yes, I love the song, "Okie from Muskogee"; however, he is in fact a Californian...he still lives there in Redding. I think the song was more or less a statement against douchebags burning American flags and other shenanigans during that time and speaking up for middle Americans.

I like a few of David Allen Coe's songs...his image has always been a little too "gritty" for me.

Yes, I remember the Alamo...anyone who messes with it will pay.
