By all appearances, country music is dead in America. The mainstream country pop garbage on redneck radio might seem to indicate that we as a nation have turned a deaf ear to quality folksy tunes, but all you need to do is giddy up over to Texas to know for sure that great American music is thriving.
One of our annual stops for great live music is Luckenbach Texas. During an epic Texas flood or a brisk snowstorm like the one we encountered recently, we try not to let anything stand in our way of this musical pilgrimage.
Luckenbach also has one of the best overnight camping deals in the entire Hill Country Region. For just $15 a night, you get the privilege of boondocking on the property grounds.
What could be better than having your home within stumbling distance of the center of the universe?
Not a day goes by when there isn’t some kind of live music happening. Even the bartenders get into the act.
With no cover charge during the week, that means we give better tips to the band and imbibe on better beer at the bar!
Our last visit included a night with the Doug Moreland Trio. This fun Texas band is straight-up Americana at its best. It’s amazing how three guys can create such a big sound!
One of our goals in life is to have a piece of property somewhere in central or West Texas. With LUCK and hard work, we hope it’s stumbling distance to the center of the universe, Luckenbach, Texas!
Check out the Doug Moreland Trio for some great music. We’ll have our own videos of their act soon, but for now here’s a sample:
