The musical landscape of Texas is no stranger to nasally twang and songs about trucks, dogs, dogs in trucks, and other country-fried themes.

But that's not singer/songwriter Chris Norwood. He's not your typical country musician.

"I'm not much of a country musician, I don't sing with an accent," Norwood told CW33 when he sat down for our inaugural Local Tracks, where we take a look at what artists are killing it in DFW.

Norwood is gearing up to release his 11-track debut Longshot on August 11 on State Fair Records. The album was produced by Chris Masterson (Steve Earle’s The Dukes/Jack Ingram) and features a handful of prominent musicians.
