A Texas Singin’ Outlaw Passes!

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

My friend Kinky Friedman, one of the real Texas musical outlaws, died a few weeks ago. I called him my friend. I heard him perform on any number on occasions, and he’d like to talk about Louisiana politics. If you haven’t followed Kinky, he and his band, the Texas Jewboys, won acclaim for their satirical takes on American culture. He later wrote detective novels and ran for governor of Texas. He was the Will Rogers of Outlaw Country Music. I sure will miss his humor.
