Texas Flood: The Inside Story of Stevie Ray Vaughan is the long-awaited followup to One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band. Not it’s here – and it’s a New York Times bestseller, too!

An instant New York Times bestseller!

“An oral history is only as good as its sources, and ‘Texas Flood’ is thorough and far-reaching, with Vaughan’s bandmates, crew and family taking center stage.” ―New York Times Book Review

Like One Way Out, Texas Flood: The Inside Story of Stevie Ray Vaughan debuted on the New York Times NonFiction Hardcover Best Seller’s List. It is the first biography of Stevie Ray Vaughan to involve Jimmie Vaughan and the three members of Double Trouble: Chris Layton, Tommy Shannon and Reese Wynans.

A taste of what people are saying about the book. >>

•”Its heart is Vaughan’s absence, and its accomplishment is that it causes us to feel the full weight of his loss. In that, the book is its own kind of blues: stirring, cathartic, and real.”

Karl Richter of the Texas Observer has written an insightful, profoundly moving review of Texas Flood. We love this one!

“Soul Brother Stevie Ray Vaughan was a force of nature! His fearless, furious and elegant approach to the guitar was breathtaking. Texas Flood helps you understand both the player and the person. We are grateful for the gifts he left for us all. We thank God for the Vaughan family; Jimmie and Stevie are both astonishing.” 
―Carlos Santana

•”Texas Flood is the story of Stevie Ray Vaughan, according to those who knew him best.” By Joe Gross of the Austin American-Statesman, the paper that followed Stevie throughout his career.

“Texas Flood is a great book. It gave me a clear outside perspective into what was the center of my life, and offers a good look at Stevie and Jimmie’s relationship: deeply endearing, often unseen. Good work guys.”
― Chris Layton, Double Trouble

Lone Star Literary Life > “Texas Flood is a fascinating backstage pass, a front row seat at the epicenter of the Texas music that unfolded in the eighties and nineties in Austin, told in the many authentic voices that shared SRV’s life. “
“Texas Flood is by far the best book ever written about Stevie. It not only tells the story of Stevie’s career as a musician, it really captures him as a human being. That is what has been missing in every book about him till now. His whole life unfolds through these pages from beginning to end. It’s a great book.” ―Tommy Shannon, Double Trouble
•Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: ” Texas Flood: The Inside Story of Stevie Ray Vaughan recounts death of Stevie Ray Vaughan at Alpine Valley through memories of his band and friends.” > http://bit.ly/2M9KFgT

―Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top

“A must read for any true fan of Stevie Ray Vaughan, and required reading for anyone with a beating heart. This book is an extremely moving account of one the greatest guitarists to have ever walked the planet. What I learned about Stevie’s life from each chapter has made me appreciate his gift to us even more. I didn’t think that was possible.” ―Joe Satriani
•We are also very excited about the Texas Flood Audiobook! Andy Aledort and I read the prose – but much more exciting so did all three members of Double Trouble: Chris Layton, Tommy Shannon and Reese Wynans. You read that right!

They read their own quotes, along with Denny Freeman, Jackie Newhouse and Joe Priesnitz. The audiobook also includes four clips from Andy’s interviews with Stevie and a few songs. Click over here to learn more and hear a sample of Chris and Stevie.
