Texas has produced some of world's best musical talent. Which four would you select to represent the state in a Mount Rushmore of lone star state music?

Austin American-Statesman music writers Deborah Sengupta Stith and Peter Blackstock joined me this afternoon to debate! Check our Facebook live discussion below and comment with your take!

The governor of New Jersey inadvertently kicked off a viral music debate on Twitter this week when he announced that his state will host the MTV Video Music Awards later this summer.

This touches on one of my favorite debates:

Find me a state with a better Mount Rushmore of musicians than New Jersey. You can't.

Bruce Springsteen
Frank Sinatra
Whitney Houston
Jon Bon Jovihttps://t.co/k8evKhZuzS

New York Times reporter Nick Corasaniti quote tweeted Gov. Phil Murphy, claiming that the Dirty Jerz has produced the best musical talent in the country. Clearly, he was a few states off!

Our friends at Texas Monthly selected Willie Nelson, Beyonce, Selena and Buddy Holly as the Mt. Rushmore of Texas music and we found that pretty hard to argue. But what if we could add a fifth head to Mt. Rushmore? What up-and-coming artist has a shot at legend status before all is said and done?
