A day trip from Austin can mean many, many things. So many pieces of country music and Texas history are tucked into the nooks and crannies of the hill country, and Luckenbach is one of my favorites.
Waylon, and Willie, and the boys …well, not so much. Waylon Jennings is reported to had never even BEEN to Luckenbach when the song was released and didn’t do so until he played there in 1997. He also said the songwriters themselves had never been there either. Willie Nelson is country music Jesus, so he can say whatever he wants and I’ll blindly follow.
One thing is for sure, you’ll get back to the basics and hopefully won’t be feelin’ any pain.
