Lone Star Is A Popular Name In Texas And It’s All In Homage To History
When Texas became independent from Mexico in 1836 and adopted the flag with the single star on it, the name "The Lone Star State" was born. And since then-more businesses than we can count have used the name-including the Country station in the Townsquare Media cluster here in the Permian Basin at 92.3 FM. The name will always conjure an image of great pride as Texans are very proud of where we live, and there's abundant love for the state we call home. All across the state, in all different sectors and all different industries and vocations-the name is everywhere. Some examples include:
Lone Star Brewing Company in Dallas
Lone Star Comics Dallas-Fort Worth
Lone Star National Bank with branches all over South Texas like San Antonio, Rio Grande City, Alton, Edinburg and Roma. Not to be confused with Lone Star Bank of West Texas here in the Basin area.
