It's a decades old relationship, not without it's marital squabbles, but who can deny that Nashville has been made all the richer by the two way highway between Music City and the Lone Star State. This show offers a wide range of sounds and styles, starting with the surprising soul of Austin's Greyhounds. And we close with contemporary country in a classic vein by Sunny Sweeney. In between, short sets from folk master Ruthie Foster and icons Asleep At The Wheel. Plus an early set from 2011 by the amazing Band of Heathens.
