The Lone Star State of Texas started the year 2010 with the formation of a new musical group called The Texas Lady Bugs. The group was formed in memory of Texas Music great Big Bill Lister and is composed of some of the greatest female singers that Texas has given to the world.
The members are Katherine Dawn, Ginger Pickett, Susan Taylor, Madge Rashell, Queen B Melinda Day, and Wave Harless. They released their first album called “First Rodeo” to popular acclaim. The album consists of the following songs such as “No Vacancy: “Maybe It’s Me”, “What Kind Of Love”, “Sweet Talkin’ Man”, and “Deep Cold Water”.
The members of the Texas Lady Bugs promised that their music would shake off “what your mama gave you”. The group has managed to keep its promise and the music sounds as a fresh alternative to the already predictable mainstream music scene in the United States of America.
The underwriter discovered the Texas Lady Bugs by accident after stumbling across the webpage of one of his favourite artists Katherine Dawn. He heard samples from “First Rodeo” and the following is a review of the album.
The cover shows a cowgirl riding a ladybug which is beautiful. It is one of the best illustrations of the 21st Century and is symbolic of things to come in Texas. The song “Sweet Talkin Man” which was written by Helen Carter [and first interpreted by the Carter Sisters] receives a majestic yet down to earth interpretation by the group.
The interpretation of “Sweet Talkin Man” appears to be superior to other interpretations by other artists with the exception of the Carter Sisters and Lynn Anderson. It appears that The Texas Lady Bugs, the Carter Sisters, and Lynn Anderson are the greatest when it comes to this song.
The song “No Vacancy” is heard two times as a radio edit and in its complete version. The song “No Vacancy” was composed by Katherine Dawn and Dawn Hale. It is a song that captures an essence of life when the doors are closed on a person. This is the perception of the underwriter.
Katherine Dawn and Dawn Hale deserve praise for the song “No Vacancy” with its down to earth interpretation. Katherine Dawn also composed “Deep Cold Water” which is destined to be a classic especially with the soulful interpretation by the Texas Lady Bugs.
Ginger Pickett deserves praise for her song “Maybe It’s Me” while Madge Rahsell deserves equal praise for her song “What Kind Of Love”. The songs [in the opinion of the writer] deal with the realities of romance in every sphere.
The Texas Lady Bugs are destined to be one of the groups that left a positive impact with their music. They will be considered The Greatest of the Greats in the World. The album “First Rodeo” will also serve as an inspiration for future Texas artists.
The underwriter gives “First Rodeo” by the Texas Lady Bugs the score of one hundred percent. It is worth buying to add to a growing music collection for Texas Music.
