Over three decades ago, along with Joe Ely, Butch Hancock and Jimmie Dale Gilmore founded The Flatlanders, a local term for folks who live in the kind of landscape southwest Texas has to spare. More of a song-swap than a commercial endeavor, the band’s sole recording project in 1973—released only in the short-lived 8-track format—was barely distributed. It has since been recognized as a landmark in progressive, alternative country music.
