Ever seen the hit TV show, Friday Night Lights? If so, it's time to muster up your best Tim Riggins impression and proclaim "Texas Forever," as rookie Ashley Smith teaches us all there is to know about the Lone Star State! 

Rocking a pair of cowboy boots and twirling around a Texas flag, Ashley is serving as our resident expert on everything you never knew you needed to know about the South's biggest state.

Did you know that rodeo, not football, is the official sport in Texas? Or were you doubting the slogan, "Everything is bigger in Texas?" Think again.

Whether you love the land of cowboys and honkey tonks or not, we're pretty sure you'll respect the land that gave us Ashley Smith a little more after this video. Yeehaw, y'all!  

BONUS: See some of Ashley's best moments from SI Swimsuit 2015!
