  H.R. No. 137
         WHEREAS, Dallas singer-songwriter Scott Dean is celebrating
  the completion of his first collection of country music with a CD
  release party in Fort Worth on July 27, 2013; and
         WHEREAS, Active on the Texas music scene for nearly a decade
  as Scott Dean McCurry, Mr. Dean previously focused on playing
  contemporary rock and roll with a wide range of stylistic
  influences; he released four studio albums before recording his new
  country EP, Re-Shuffle, under a shorter version of his name to avoid
  confusion with another performer with a similar moniker; and
         WHEREAS, Mr. Dean grew up listening to country music and has
  been inspired by the works of such artists as the Flying Burrito
  Brothers and Jerry Jeff Walker; in recording his country debut, he
  maintained his allegiance to upbeat melodies, high-energy songs,
  and memorable lyrics, as is evident from the title of the first
  single from the release, "Hungover All Over Again"; and
         WHEREAS, Through his musical endeavors, Scott Dean is
  contributing to the cultural vibrancy of the Lone Star State, and he
  is indeed deserving of recognition as he embarks on the next
  exciting chapter of his career; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 83rd Texas
  Legislature, 2nd Called Session, hereby congratulate Scott Dean on
  the release of his country music debut and extend to him sincere
  best wishes for continued success; and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
  prepared for Mr. Dean as an expression of high regard by the Texas
  House of Representatives.
  Speaker of the House     
         I certify that H.R. No. 137 was adopted by the House on July
  25, 2013, by a non-record vote.
  Chief Clerk of the House
