About Texas

Texas is home to people who are very proud of their country roots. Everywhere you go in Texas, you can expect to occasionally see cowboys wearing a nice hat and boots to suit their Texan lifestyle.

Country music plays a big role in the lives of Texans as live music and songs on the radio fill the air with soulful sounds. When it comes to food, beef is quite popular and considered a  staple in the diets of many Texas residents. Even bars serve beef as a popular staple in their menus.
