Default Big Tex

Here's a short video about Bill Bragg, the voice of Big Tex. Very interesting piece.

I'm pretty sure he's no longer the voice of Big Tex.

Yep, from what I heard he had a falling out with the fair due to him making appearances as "The Voice of Big Tex" without their consent. It looks like Big Tex's voice is pre-recorded now.

Makes sense, especially when they had to replace the statue.

I still miss Jim Lowe as the original (and longtime) voice. Besides a Dallas radio legend, he was just a great guy. As far as Bill Bragg, he's good and has a real passion for the role, but I can certainly understand the fair needing to protect their interests as well. Maybe they can one day reach a compromise.

i couldn't imagine the Fair giving Bill Bragg his job back. He posted a lot of negative stuff or had others post stuff on his FB page about the fair. Some of it liable, not a good way to get your job back. 12 years was a long run, he should appreciate it and move on.
