Texas is a place where talented songwriters seem as common as crab grass, but Ryan Culwell is one Lone Star tunesmith who had to move away from his home state before he could write and record his breakthrough album. In 2006 he released the album Heroes on the Radio through a small independent label. While the record was a strong effort, it didn't make much of an impression commercially, and with a wife and two children, he decided his family was more important and dropped out of music for several years. In 2011 Culwell relocated to Nashville and began working on songs again. In March 2015 he released his second album, Flatland, a moody and atmospheric song cycle about hard times and hard luck in the Panhandle. ~ Mark Deming
