The Panhandlers is my favorite musical group of 2020.
Four seasoned Texas Country musicians who make up this group from the flatlands of West Texas, William Clark Green, Cleto Cordero, Josh Abbott and John Baumann. All four of them make great music by themselves but the four of them together is a phenomenal sound.
My current favorite song is “West Texas in My Eye.” I cant stop hearing this rolling around in my head!
Where the Llano Estacado rises up into the sky I ain’t crying that’s West Texas in my eye
There entire debut album is world class, and the entire album is themed around my home. West Texas.
My pick for album of the year is The Panhandlers.
There is talk of a second album coming out in 2021.
Josh Abbott tweeted today:
“Covid ruined our entire debut tour”Josh Abbott from Twitter
The band is planning shows in Lubbock, Amarillo, El Paso, Marfa, and Alpine at some point.
I hope I can catch up with them live sometime sooner than later.
This Covid has got to pass!
Sunny 69 degree day here at home today. There is a forecast of snow tomorrow night. I have always heard “If you don’t like the weather in West Texas wait a minute and it will change.”
Maybe the snow will run the Covid to the ground! The West Texas sunshine sure hasn’t beat it. Keep your heads up and keep moving forward. With the vaccines and the new medical treatments I know we are going to beat this thing!
I ain’t crying that’s West Texas in my eye.
