If that's your taste in music you need to get familiar with Gary P Nunn.


Merry Christmas

Oh, but I do know who Gary P. Nunn is!!! I also like James McMurtry as well. But between Jerry Jeff and E. Wylie Hubbard (probably spelled his name completely wrong) I have to say these are my favorites

wonder how many guys caught the picture of Bob Wills? I think my brother inlaw (former) got real good and drunk in the Broken Spoke many moons ago. Suspect his former wife is still mad about that one! What's the name of the barbeque joint that's nothing but a huge barn and a grill that's about 24 feet long. They said the fire had not been out in years. Art took me there, and the food was world class

That would be "Ray Wylie Hubbard". He and Willie Nelson are probably my two favorite guitar pickers of all time.

You're mixing him up with Robert Earl Keene I think.

One or Ray's latest.

I like all three of them. McMurtry and Keene are real high on my list of Texans, but of them I like Hubbard the best (probably because I like the songs he writes). Jerry Jeff Walker introduced Gary P. Nunn to me on an LP when he sane London Homsick Blues (I think that's the title anyway). I played that record so much that I wore it out, and bought another and another. I think I now own five copies! McMurtry and Robert Earl Keene are kinda hard to find in Indiana, and most of the big ticket outlets (Elusive Disc, Acoustic Sounds, and Musical Surroundings) have never heard of them. But I can always get my daughter in Plano to pick me up some stuff. By the way Walker and Hubbard most definitly sound better in analog than they do on a CD!! And I mean seriously better! I don't think I've ever seen any analog stuff from Keene and McMurtry. By the way are you aware of the fact that Walker is from Brooklyn NY.?

Yep to the last and you've got good taste in Music.

Gary P Nunn, Willie, Clint Black, George Strait, and Chris LeDeux, along with a few others kept me sane when I was overseas. ... Well relatively sane.

Kick back put on the head phones, close my eyes and I was home.

If you ever were to see my music collection, you probably die in disbliefe! I own about (it's all guess work at this stage) 5500 to 5750 LP's, and about 1200 CD's and a few SACD's and DVD-A's. I listen to pretty much everything except for polka music (guy has gotta draw a line somewhere) . Acoustic jazz is my main passion, but don't think I don't listen to the other stuff as well. Love Russian classical music (discovered it too late in life), and over the last few years have learned to like light Italian opera. Grew up on bluegrass, and discovered Texas swing when I lived in Oklahoma (love Bob Wills and Asleep At The Wheel). But the one thing I discovered from living in Oklahoma was a guy named Merl Haggared. Probably one of the best song writers in country music ever ( I put him right up there with Hubbard). Over the years I've been lucky enough to meet a lot of musicians in jazz, C&W, and bluegrass.
