Few songs have resonated with Texas music fans longer, or spread more musical goodwill to the world, than “London Homesick Blues.” Best known today for helping millions of TV viewers go home with the armadillo for decades as the Austin City Limits theme, “London” previously appeared as the final track of Jerry Jeff Walker’s epoch-defining progressive-country manifesto, 1973 live album Viva Terlingua! Its mythical origins — how not Walker but the song’s author, Gary P. Nunn, came to actually sing it that fateful night, as affirmed from the stage by bassist Bob Livingston — now lie at the heart of Nunn and Livingston’s two-man stage show dubbed “Songs and Stories of Texas.” Nunn went on to become one of Texas’s true honky-tonk princes, a familiar sight at the Hideout come rodeo time, while Livingston has been an official cultural ambassador of the U.S. State Department for decades. Thursday, fans can only hope the two can remember, and are willing to share, even a fraction of what they’ve seen.
