This is something we don't talk about here much, but San Angelo is getting a reputation for good music. Los Lonely Boys is known world wide. Other groups are getting recognized regularly, and making it on to the charts.
There are lots of charts out there. Some, such as billboard, track sales by the major labels. Others track the sales and air time of bands that haven't signed with a major label. A local singer, Darren Morrison, has made it to the top of one of the charts. Take a look and listen.
