March 2nd is a historic day in Texas. On that day in 1836, the Republic of Texas declared independence from Mexico. It wasn’t until April 21,1836, that the independence was solidified at the Battle of San Jacinto, but the seeds were already sewn for what would become a month-long celebration of Independence.

In honor of Texas Independence Month, which runs from March 2-April 21, The Paisano set out to find the quintessential playlist to celebrate Texas.
