RTXclusive: Prophets and Outlaws Debut ‘Texas Home’ Music Video
Continuing through August, Radio Texas, LIVE! is your one stop for exclusive video premiers from one of Texas’ favorite bands, Prophets and Outlaws.
For this week’s RTXclusive video premiere we turn to a recent performance of ”Texas Home” filmed at Heritage Hall in Ardmore, Oklahoma. The song is the title-track to the band’s fourth EP that secured mass regional radio airplay. It featured three additional hit singles on the Texas Music Chart with “Shine On Me,” “Texas Home” and “Country Music Gold.” Those songs combined have amassed over 600,000 Spotify streams.
The tune was written by PAO front-man, Matt Boggs, with his Papaw in mind -- a man who was an inspiration to him and helped shape the course of Matt’s life, as so many grandfathers have done for their generally southern grandchildren.
“It’s a song that hits home with a lot of southerners especially from Texas to the Deep South. It is a song about our extended Texas family and all of the great things we’ve gotten to see and do in our home state.”
Boggs realized the impact of his song when he was approached by a towering oilfield worker after a show one night in Fort Worth. The man wiped the tears from his eyes and said “I also buried my Papaw and he meant the world to me.”
“We love the relatability the song provides, and the openhearted message the lyrics convey make this song easily embraced by its listener.” The sincerity in the vocals makes the track feel warm, genuine, and honest. Boggs’ smooth voice guides the emotion of the song and it’s one you want to play again as soon as it ends.
