“The first album I ever bought? Ricky Nelson.

I didn’t hear about him from TV because for some reason that show didn’t happen in Lubbock, but I heard ‘Hello, Mary Lou’ on the radio, and I just loved it.

And I think that’s the first record that I actually bought with my own money.”

The great Jimmie Dale Gilmore teams up with his fellow Texas tunesmiths Joe Ely and Butch Hancock as the Flatlanders ride into Club Helsinki in Hudson on Sunday (April 14) for an acoustic concert. Joe Pug opens the show at 8pm. Tickets are $38.
