Hoofin' it - Luckenbach!

On the way, or almost on the way between Fredericksburg and Austin is Luckenbach. Maybe you've heard of the place from the Waylon Jennings song, or because it's a Willie Nelson hangout spot. Last time we came through, the place was packed with leather chaps, cowboy hats and Harleys. This time it was pretty quiet, but we got a little, live show and had a Lone Star beer. 

This town is basically a shack or two in the middle of green rolling hills. There's a gift shop, a post office and a few stages where I'm sure there have been more than a few amazing shows performed and enjoyed. 

On the way out I almost drove us off the road. It was both frightening and funny. That's all I have to say about that.

I'm glad you both found the video! Do you want to give name credits?
It was really wonderful watching this performance! One of the biggest treats of my trip.
