Robert Ellis: “Topo Chico” (Live in Studio 1A)

Posted by on Apr 11, 2019

If there’s one man who believes in the musical mythos of the Lone Star State, it’s Robert Ellis.

You can see Ellis coming from a mile away with his idiosyncratic white tux and bouquet of yellow roses but his knack for honky tonk-inspired songwriting and understanding of Texas culture will easily impress natives, transplants and Tex-pats alike. Around the same time he released Texas Piano ManRobert Ellis joined us in Studio 1A and he plays 7:15pm tomorrow night at The Bluebonnet Stage at Old Settler’s Music Festival. And in case you’re still not convinced of Robert Ellis as a beacon of Texas music, take a sip from his Studio 1A performance, and his love letter to one of our home state’s favorite refreshments, “Topo Chico”!
