A Hill Country Christmas is a Blue Rock tradition of fun, carol singing, and home-grown artists in the round. This year we featured Texas folk charmer, Terri Hendrix, and friends - Lloyd Maines, Billy Crockett, Susan Gibson, Ray Bonneville, and young wonderful Sarah Jarosz. Now that puts the "mas" back in Christmas! Leave comments below and check back for photos and fun reviews.
All you really need to do is listen to "Acre of Land" — the centerpiece de resistance of her ninth and latest album, <i>The Spiritual Kind.</i> In a little under four minutes, you’ll come away with a perfect introduction to the Texas based songwriter’s music and a veritable map of her songwriter soul.
She’s not afraid to ask questions, speak her mind freely enough to occasionally put her foot in her mouth, learn from her mistakes and sometimes — from the top, with feeling — repeat them all over again. With nine acclaimed albums and appearances across the globe, Terri is the sweetheart of an ever-growing audience that appreciates the simple soulful song delivered with generosity and finesse.
"For the past 15 years, my life has revolved around the discovery of music, and the joy of music," she concludes. "And to get the opportunity to do what I do for my living ... how beautiful is that?"
