    Autobiography of a Texas music icon

    Autobiography of a poor white boy growing up in rural Oklahoma and Texas in the 1950’s and 1960’s who became a Texas music icon. That Is What I Like About Texas was written as a Lone Star Beer commercial. London Homesick Blues (Home with the Armadillo) was written by the author when he was in London and homesick for Texas. Austin City Limits fans thank you. Last Thing I Needed First Thing This Morning was written ten years before it became a hit by Willie Nelson in 1982. The forward to the book was written by Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. The story starts on December 4, 1945 and moves chronologically from that point. Because of the quality of songs written by the author, I had high expectations for this book. I did not find an editor listed anywhere in the book. I think a good editor might have pulled the words into an interesting story. I read this as an outline, (example: on this day this happened and then we did this on another day…). The author’s parents were teachers/farmers/ranchers in Oklahoma. I got the impression that he was proud that his father worked himself to death, rather than be upset at a system that allowed this to happen. Disclaimer: I grew up in rural Texas and had relatives in Oklahoma. I guess we see things differently. If you are going to proselytize, you have to make the story interesting. This book is not going to convert anyone. 2 stars The book was provided by NetGalley for an honest review.
