Watch the Highwaymen Sing Waylon’s Classic, ‘Luckenbach, Texas’

By  | 

Country music never fails to get straight to the point. Waylon Jennings’ “Luckenbach, Texas” performed with the Highwaymen reminds us all to get back to the basics of love.

We say it a lot: never has there been a supergroup with more power than The Highwaymen. From Farm Aid to arenas across the country, we’ve watched Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson fill a room with their talent, their country grit, and their voices.

“Luckenbach, Texas” is a song that celebrates exactly what country music and Texas is about: telling the truth. The lyrics look down on the idea that fame and fortune make one happy and instead recognize that heading back to a simpler time is what makes one happy.

The couple in the song, though they have everything like a four-car garage, have lost themselves and their love for each other. Where better to find it than Luckenbach, Texas, where a simpler and lovelier life awaits?

The Highwaymen’s charisma while Waylon performs this song is electric in the Long Island Nassau Coliseum in March 1990. Let’s have our four favorite men take us back to a better time and enjoy this video of their performance.
