Dallas band Calhoun's sound bridges the gap between pop and old school alternative, and features the vocal range of singer Tim Locke. They've retained the same lineup for more than 5 years, and the band mates still love writing, recording and performing together.

During Locke's recent visit to KETR, the discussion ranged from the origins of the band name, to the new "Football Night In America" record and the meaning behind the title, and his appreciation for life, fatherhood and music in his 40's.

Listen to Notably Texan weekdays from 11am to 2pm on KETR.

Born in Dallas, Texas, Matt moved to the Sulphur Springs area in 1990 and settled in Commerce shortly thereafter.
