SGH - That was an awesome article. Was glad when I got that one in the mail and happy that I've kept up with my subscription to TM. Tiki Torches is right, it's a must read.

Outlaws the band or the compilation with Willie, Waylon, Jessi and Tompall? I'm guessing the latter, considering the context of your post.
Actually I have both on my iPod, was listening to Waylon & Willie, "If you can touch her at all" last night. Willie Nelson playing in my town this Sunday, will be trying for 1/2 price tix on day of @ box office. But I was referring to "The Outlaws" of Green Grass & High TIdes in my post. But I listen to so many different types of music -- Frampton Comes Alive was blasting as I cleaned the kitchen yesterday. I will admit to being an old codger when it comes to music. I don't like the techno stuff that my kids like. It's not organic enough for me. I like real people playing real instruments!
As do I but I also love modern music, just not the kind of stuff that usually tops the charts. I wanted to direct you to that recent article from Texas Monthly
called "The Birth of Outlaw Country" but it seems they're now charging a subscription fee to read it online. If you're able to get your hands on a copy it's a must read for anyone who's a fan of that era of country music. Good luck on the Willie tix!
Thanks for the recommendation, both of you. I will def look into it ... with summer starting I will have lots more free time
. I just heard a new song from Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson -- with Snoop Dog -- "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die" !!! Fun song with a good message (imho). I have been following the conversation that the two of you have been having here, and I will be looking into some of the music you've been discussing -- seems like you guys will be expanding my horizons ...
Someone I know on another board put this compilation together after being inspired by the Outlaw Country cover story in Texas Monthly
