well i go to cowboy church and it is great. this is normal attire, and very much what i wear. i like it because it is nonpretentious. we have our own team roping team and have team roping practice before bible study each week.
dogs roam from nearby ranches into church and i get to pet them.
we have big fish fries and such.
great country music
my church's band played "Leroy The Redneck Reindeer" for Christmas services-it was wonderful

HAHAHA, wow - just about made me spit out my drink! Never seen a Western dress-up-party church before, or anything like this EVER!!! Look at those boots!!! All the colors of the rainbow. Does that guy spur his horse on his way back home? What about after the service -- do they clear the chairs and let the kids rope calves in there, too?

I looked at that map, and the only cowboy church in the entire Houston metro is in Santa Fe, a town that has a bad rep, deserved or not. Probably deserved at least a little considering who all I've met from there when I used to work closeby. So you can have that.

Yes I'm from TX, as are my parents, grandparents... my wife as well, all the way back to the Germans who landed in South Central TX. At our leisure we look more like beach bums than anything else. All that fancy getup is too uncomfortable, and would honestly make us stick out like a sore thumb here. (Maybe not in Santa Fe though. )

But we're all from that part of Texas you may think is 'not really Texas,' so...

I think my comedic reference was for Church's Chicken just for clarification. I thought you got that.

But either place would not have been a bad choice after a Sunday morning service at any Waco house of worship.

Way back when, I do remember billboards in Waco for Columbus with a great line. It said for us to "Discover Columbus". That, of course, was a funny reference to the famous 1492 expedition. It got a chuckle.

I don't even remember a "Church's" Chicken when I was there. in fact, Leslie's was who prepared our box lunch's for all the Saturday Freshman geology field trips. It was the mainstay for fried chicken.
