Legends Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely and Butch Hancock first met, and shared a residence, in Lubbock, Texas in 1972. That same year they recorded "The Odessa Tapes" (on reel-to-reel), which were just recently discovered and released for the first time. Although originally rejected by the country music scene, these three musicians went on to great solo careers. The crowd fully embraced their musical style honed by 40 years on the road.
Joe Pug opened the show.
