Already Yearning for Our Return to Texas

We have not even left yet to return to our favorite workamping job back at the ranch for the summer, and we’re already talking about getting back to Texas next winter. So, I’ve finally uploaded this video of Kristyn Harris singing a fun rendition of “Been Everywhere” – in true Texas fashion.


If you spend much time in Texas, see how many town names you recognize in this version of the Hank Snow classic. If you like this, you may also enjoy the Rick Moranis lyrics in his satirical adaptation, I Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere.

Kristyn Harris Cowgirl Country Singer at Cowboy Poetry Gathering Alpine TexasWe were fortunate enough to catch Kristyn on camera at the 2012 Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Alpine, where the cowgirls clearly stole the show. Hopefully by the time we return, I’ll have updated our Cowboy Poetry Playlist with more videos from our last visit! For more home movies of local music from all around the country, check out the Musicamericana playlist on our Videos page.

Guitar Parking at Luckenbach, TexasAll of my most memorable live music from our past six years on the road, has been in Small Town, USA. A few highlights include seeing Virgina governors jam with the Jug Busters at the Floyd Country Store, the Grassmatics performing Deep Ellum Blues upon request at Artz Ribs in Austin, Michael Martin Murphy (of Wildfire fame) up close and personal in Lake City, and of course every trip we’ve taken back to Luckenbach, Texas. OK, Austin isn’t exactly a small town, but Artz is sure a small venue!

Where have you seen great local music in America?
