Some define Red Dirt music as “country music with an attitude”. Others say it’s a state of mind as much as it is a sound – a sound that successfully closes the gap between rock and country.

Red Dirt Music is a music genre that gets its name from the color of soil found in Oklahoma. Although Stillwater, Oklahoma is considered to be the center of Red Dirt music, there’s a Texas Red Dirt sound as well. Outlaws, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson are associated with the distinctive Texas sound while Bob Childers defines Oklahoma Red Dirt music. At one time the distinction between the two genres was obvious, but by 2008 that gap had diminished. {{more}}

Marc Ringwood, founder of Texas Troubadours – a website dedicated to the sounds of Oklahoma and Texas – says, “I don?t think there is a true way to define it. Trying to analyze it, you see that a lot of artists carry the same influences going back to the days of Bob Wills and Woody Guthrie (for the older artists and bands), and then you have new guys who have followed in stride with their peers by feeding off their influences. Red Dirt also has more of a spiritual quality within the music. It?s more honest, and true and noncliched, like a lot of other music we?re exposed to in major markets.”

According to Wikipedia the “stylistic origins” can be found in Folk, Texas Country, Honky tonk music, Western Swing, Bluegrass, Country, Rock, Blues, Southern Rock, The Tulsa Sound. Place of origin is given as t Oklahoma and North Texas.
