#TheClassics: Little Texas ‘Amy’s Back in Austin’
Everyone needs a certain appreciation for the classics – those songs that inspired the Texas and Nashville tunes we hear today. There was a certain honesty in songwriting back in the day that deserves to be recognized and remembered.
Little Texas is commonly known as the hardest working band in country music - and well deserved too:
It was not uncommon for the band to play more than 300 shows a year without a bus, without a driver, without tour support from a label. They simply made it on their own, and that seasoning is evident even today.
'Amy's Back in Austin' is one of their big hits from the early 90s, and references La Zona Rosa, a classic venue that deserves remembering too. La Zona Rosa closed last year after serving live music for over 30 years, only to be replaced by condos. Because we need more condos?
