1000 SONGS - DAY 355 Song #386

Day 355: A Song about what Time Does 

Butch Hancock, born 1945, is a Texan country-musician who is probably better known as a songwriter than as a recording artist. Nevertheless, he also does fine versions of the songs he has written. Looked at by some as a forerunner of “alternative country”, his songs have been covered by Emmylou, Linda Ronstadt, Texas Tornados amongst others and mostly by Joe Ely, who was a member of the Flatlanders (1970-1973, reunited in 1997 in the context of the movie The Horse Whisperer, for which they recorded the song South Wind of Summer), like Butch. I especially do like Butch Hancock’s album “Eats away the Night”. Here is the title song of that album.
