Of course, as we developed, we had many more bands help shape our sound.” The Little River Band is by no means alone in this assessment. Other Texas musicians, from Buddy Holly to Willie Nelson, have helped shaped the sounds of many of the superstar acts of our era. Last night, at the conclusion of the LRB show, I walked to the Texas Songwriter stage, where I was able to catch a part of Joe Ely’s show. It was a great feeling when the usher at the door informed me that it was standing room only. It’s good to know that fans in Texas really do appreciate great
Texas talent. And it struck me at that point. There is a very good chance that the Joe Elys, Pat Greens, Jack Ingrams and Randy Rogers of the world will be influencing future generations of musicians. That’s a lot of power from one state!
