After taking song submissions for three weeks, we are ready to start the first round of the second East Texas Takeover! This is the chance for bands from East Texas to get air play on 96X The Rock of East Texas.

We've got four songs from East Texas bands for you to check out, and then vote for the song you think is the best. The winning song will be announced and played on the air Monday, Nov. 5. We'll also include a song or two each week from bands that competed in our first installment of the East Texas Takeover earlier this year.

This is just the first round, so if you're still interested in getting your band to compete in the East Texas Takeover, click here to see how you can send us your tunes!
