You'll be surprised where some of these great songwriters are from and some of the mega hits that they wrote.

I grew up with Larry Henley's kids in Longview.  He's buried in the same cemetery as my parents in Kelsey, TX.  https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/140193754/larry-henley

I didn't realize that so many black artists were missing.  It's a shame, because there are so many that deserve the honor that are from Texas or wrote their music in Texas some notables  :  Robert Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Ornette Coleman, Barry White, Freddie King, Johnny Mathis, Usher, Beyonce, and I know I'm missing several older musicians that should be in.  It's stupid to leave them out.
