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.

Townes Van Zandt was originally from Fort Worth, before making his rounds across Texas and Colorado. Legend has it you could find Townes hitchhiking the long Texas highways, carrying nothing but his records and a guitar. Many of his songs were made famous by other artists, including 'If I Needed You.'

Nearly 10 years after his death, 'Be Here to Love Me,' a documentary on Townes' was released, which is a sensational piece of work that truly shows you the life and loves of Townes Van Zandt. A must watch.
