They’ve been called “more a legend than a band,” but every so often, Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Butch Hancock get the band back together. Today on the show, a classic live performance from the Flatlanders (ahead of their gig on Sep 20 at the Paramount), and a look at the roots of the band, including how they turned an insult into a band name. Speaking of the Flatlanders, cosmic country arguably had a big influence on Israel Nash, the KUTX artist of the month. He’s in our Studio 1A playing songs from his stellar new album. Plus, back and forth with Robert Plant, and more, on this week’s edition of the Austin Music Experience. Join us Sunday at 6 p.m. on KUTX 98.9 and kutx.org, or anytime in the player below!
