One of the best things about driving a pre-owned luxury vehicle is that you typically get more infotainment options so you can stream your favorite playlists. Speaking of playlists, we thought that we would suggest some great songs (mostly country) to celebrate our home state of Texas! Be sure to add some of them to your playlist!
