Arlington's Tommy Alverson should be the permanent face of the independent Texas country music movement. He embodies all the hallmarks of the sound, and the mind-set. Alverson is Lone Star proud. He's artistically beholden to nobody but himself. He loves Americana music, that decidedly Texas blend of country, swing, Tex-Mex, Southern rock, folk and blues. He writes songs, but also has no qualms about recording good material from somebody else's pen. He's made a living playing
music his way.

Alverson's new CD, Texas One More Time, encapsulates his creative mantra in 14 songs. He covers expansive territory. You get a classic Texas country anthem ("Texas One More Time"), a honky-tonk corker ("Broken Hearted People"), a swinging country ballad ("Don't Mind If I
Do"), a Western swing number ("It's Hard to Say for Sure"), a bluesy rave-up ("Sweet Love"), a Tex Mex nugget ("Move to Texas") and a humorous ditty ("Willie's Place").

Texas One More Time is Alverson's ninth disc in a career that has been incredibly steady. He's carved a livelihood playing and recording the music he cherishes in the state he calls home. That's the epitome of successful. He doesn't need anything else. By MARIO TARRADELL / The Dallas Morning News

Alverson’s been making music with a Lone Star state of mind – and sound – for decades, yet his popularity is still growing. When he won the 2007 Best Country and Western Music Award from Fort Worth Weekly, the paper declared, “If there is such a thing as Cowtown country music’s elder statesman, he’s it.”
Though Alverson has stood on Texas’ honky-tonk and dance hall stages since way before he could be called an elder statesman of anything, the first time radio really paid attention was with the Jimmy Buffett-ish “Una Mas Cerveza,” a song on 1999’s, Lloyd Maines-produced Me on the Jukebox. Ironically, that one allowed him to quit his 30-year gig with Miller Brewing Co. so he could hit the road and sing his songs. FW Weekly

 

Tommy Alverson fiercely hews to the time-honored Texas country music tradition—a little swing, a little twang,  a lot of heart. He’s a mentor, producer, festival promoter, songwriter and singer who takes responsibility for keeping boot marks on the honky-tonk hardwood floor.

Whenever I see Tommy’s name, I know I’m in for a real country music experience.

VERY entertaining CD. I had a good review thought of, but can't remember what it is now. Had it down when I clicked on the Review button, though. Sorry, Tommy.

God used a little piece of every ole oldie he could find and gave him a BIG TEXAS SIZED HEART and DIRT & RAY & RON & JERRY & THURSTON & MIKEY and that created TOMMY ALVERSON, and then he threw away the mold.

I have been a tremendous fan of Tommy Alverson since I first heard his music on KNON 89.3 in Dallas several years ago. We are all lucky to live in his time, because I believe many years from now when the topic of Texas Music comes up, Tommy Alverson's name will be required to clarify its meaning.

Tommy Alverson has truely shown his love for hill-country music. The album titled song, "Me On The Jukebox" identifies with every singer/songwriter in there quest to make fame and sing songs about Texas. If no fame, then buy a bar and put yourself on the jukebox. You can put this CD in your truck and drive from Galveston to Hico, with no complaints. Good job Tommy!
