Butch Hancock

Townes Van Zandt's roughshod life somehow created space and breathed life into a pack of uncontainable West Texas singer-songwriters whose time arrived like a haboob in the early ’90s and departed just about as quickly a decade later. Still, they abide.

Among even his fellow Flatlanders, Butch Hancock could be considered a Rennaissance man. He fills up with experiences and has a song for just about every one of them.

Gene Armstrong gave the highlights of Hancock's own story in last week's "Soundbites." C. Elliott captured his show at Club Congress last Thursday, Sept. 26.
