"At Home with the Armadillo" by Gary P. Nunn, with Foreword by Billy F. Gibbons of ZZ Top.
This memoir of the Texas music legend is a unique and revealing debut work that showcases Nunn's exceptional abilities as a storyteller. His songwriting talents have translated naturally into captivating prose as he recounts the story of his life from a humble childhood in rural Oklahoma to playing with members of the famous Crickets, and then to his move to Texas and into the vibrant Austin music scene of the early 1970s. Nunn's famous "London Homesick Blues" was the theme song of the popular "Austin City Limits" television show for over two decades.
Nunn doesn't hold back, and recounts the bad times as well as the good. Nunn shares personal encounters with musicians such as Michael Martin Murphey, Jerry Jeff Walker and Willie Nelson, as well as adventures in Mexico and more.
This book is perfect for music lovers, lovers of Texas music history, people who grew up in Texas in the 1960s and '70s and those who wish they had!
