Waylon Jennings - Luckenback, Texas (Back To The Basics Of Love)

A stone cold country classic, Waylon Jennings' "Luckenbach, Texas" was written by Chips Moman and Bobby Emmons and first released in 1977 on the Ol' Waylon album. It's about a real place in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, a place everyone should visit before they die, as it's steeped in country music history because of this song, but also because it's real pretty there. The song itself is also great of course, referencing "Waylon and Willie and the boys" and more specifically the violent Hatfield-McCoy feud of the 1880's, Hank Williams, both Mickey Newbury and Jerry Jeff Walker's train songs and "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain".

Watch and listen
