What’s your favorite song about Texas?
If you like Texas music, Gary P. Nunn will be at Hank’s Texas Grill . Tickets are $12 at the door, and the show starts at 9 p.m.
“What I Like About Texas” is one of his best known hits.
Nunn has been playing Texas dance halls and is one of the founding father of the progressive country movement out of Austin in the 1970s that changed the face of popular music, when Austin hippies and Hill Country cowboys found out they enjoyed the same music.
Nunn’s “London Homesick Blues” — with its internationally known “I wanna go home with the Armadillo” chorus — is a signature Texas country song that was the theme for the PBS concert TV show “Austin City Limits” for nearly three decades. It’s no wonder that All Music Guide hails him as “a Texas music institution.”
