A tale from a Texas honky-tonk..

...courtesy of Tom. Not gonna excerpt any of it here, but I will say it did remind me of a certain David Allan Coe song. ;-) I've always thought the songs an artist covers in concert and on record made for a good indicator of where they come from musically. Just as an example, consider the fact that Tim McGraw does songs from the Steve Miller Band and Elton John, while George Strait covers Webb Pierce and Bob Wills.
(Oh, and Sabra? Don't let that spook you. I have seen Tim McGraw live, yes...but it was while he was on the Strait festival tour. I really was quite glad to see him replaced by Alan Jackson that last year...)
