This first CD, Lone Star State of Mind, is long awaited by their fans. It took almost a year of hard work to put their heart and soul into the music. The only complaint by the fans is that the band was not able to fit all their favorites onto the CD.
The CD contains nine songs that embody Texas red dirty country music. Crazy, the first song from the CD, talks about how women tend to affect men. The second song, the title track, touts the benefits of living in Texas. Song three from the CD, No Second Chance (for Second Chances), is about a life lesson learned. San Marcos is not about the town itself, but a few people that live there. This song along with Lone Star State of Mind actually had radio play in Central Texas several months before the CD was released. The fifth song, Wishing You Were Mine, is pretty self explanatory. When Fallen Angels Fly, the only cover tune on the CD, is a song by Billy Joe Shaver. It is an homage to some of the band's roots in Texas music, with their own twist on the classic song. The next song, I Want Your Lovin Every Day, was co-written by a friend of the band, Drew Womack (from Sons of the Dessert). Drew actually helps out with background vocals on three of the songs on this CD. This song was originally going to be titled using "Wancho" instead of "Want Your". The eighth song on the CD, Movin On, is about getting on with your life after a bad relationship. The last song on the CD, What Home Means, is about the band's home town, Waco, Texas. Some people refer to it as "the Waco song". However, anyone anywhere will be able to identify with it.
