Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock, Fred Eaglesmith
3000 NE Alberta St.
[FLATLAND COUNTRY FOLK] If Fred Eaglesmith had grown up in West Texas instead of southern Ontario and Western Canada, he would have fit in perfectly with the silver-voiced Jimmie Dale Gilmore and prolific, Dylan-influenced Butch Hancock, two-thirds of Texas' legendary Flatlanders, who have been inspired by their rural West Texas upbringings (as well as Buddhist philosophy, fellow Texas legends like Townes Van Zandt, and more) for four decades. All three old school, alt-country singer-songwriters share a propensity for smart lyrics, rural themes, dry humor and deft character sketches—of both people and places—not to mention catchy tunes.
