Texas music legend Tom Russell will be busy in the next week. His tour dates will take him from New Mexico to Dallas, and finally to Houston and San Antonio.

Tonight, Russell is appearing at the Silco Theater in Silver City, outside of El Paso. Tomorrow he goes to Las Cruces, then to Santa Fe. Then on consecutive nights, Russell goes to Fort Worth, Dallas, Austin, Fischer, Houston and finally San Antonio.

Russell has recorded 25 records, and his songs have been used by Johnny Cash, Dough Sahm, Nancy Griffith, Jerry Jeff Walker, Joe Ely, k.d. lang and many others.

He and cohort Dave Alvin have been credited with inventing the Americana radio format with their 1994 Merle Haggard tribute “Tulare Dust.” He has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman four times in recent years and his songs have appeared in a dozen movies and television shows from “Tremors” to “Northern Exposure.”
