You Coulda Walked Around the World
The LBJ of Lone Star songwriters lays siege to the Cactus Cafe
Music Story  August 20, 2010, by Raoul Hernandez
"...In 1997, the year Butch Hancock released his first of only two solo albums since then, You Coulda Walked Around the World, my onetime $105-a-month Hyde Park abode dilapidated into a pile worth being sold and turned – same as a recent romance. A year or two later, in a newly mortgaged house I'd never envisioned, You Coulda Walked Around the World soothed me time and again..."

Music Story  May 15, 1998, by Christopher Hess

The Flatlanders’ Centennial
Whole Hogg with the Lubbock trio’s “Borderless Love”
DAILY Music  June 27, 2016, by Raoul Hernandez
"...“Right where, right where I belong / It feels so good I might be right where I belong.” During their 90-minute hootenanny Friday at Hogg Auditorium, the Flatlanders revisited a mantra on new millennial restart Now Again. Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, and Jimmie Dale Gilmore were flesh again, but the meeting of band and vintage venue set in stone true folk grandeur...."

Conflicts and Contradictions
The Choices of Terry Allen
Music Story  February 16, 1996, by Lee Nichols
"...He also doesn't completely fit in with the Lubbock expatriates; unlike Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock et al., he didn't join the mass musician migration to Austin, choosing instead to head west for Los Angeles. He didn't pursue a music career as ardently as they did, either, which leads to the most profound contradiction in Allen's life -- his dual artistic identities..."

Son of the Circus
Twistin' in the Wind
Music Story  October 2, 1998, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Even if audiences, Austin or otherwise, never get a chance to see Small Town Girl, a Joe Sears production put on for invitation-only audiences out at Willie Nelson's place this past weekend, the 51-year-old Ely has nevertheless spent the lion's share of his life tearing up audiences worldwide. Whether accompanied only by an acoustic guitar, paired with fellow Flatlanders Gilmore and Butch Hancock, or more likely, as leader of one of his many hard honky-tonkin' bands, Joe Ely has never delivered one of his Micheneresque tales of Texas with anything less than full, unbridled passion; a firebrand, that Ely, a tornado under the spotlight in the center ring -- a force of nature to be reckoned with, whether he was Down on the Drag, Lord of the Highway, or Live at Liberty Lunch..."

These Lubbock friends of mine were always writing books – thick notebooks of drawings and words
Columns  March 16, 2007, by Michael Ventura
"...Jesse Taylor (may he rest in peace) played his last hometown gig the night after. Many of the bunch we call "14th Street" showed up for the screening, and it was weird, it was flat-out weird to see that old brick house on 14th and Avenue W up there on the big screen with its most famous residents – Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore..."

According to the Handbook of Texas, John Lang Sinclair wrote "The Eyes of Texas" to the tune of "I've Been Working on the Railroad" at the behest of his roommate, UT band director Louis Johnson..."

More a Man Than a Legend
Observing as the golden-throated Flatlander becomes a record-label executive
Music Story  February 25, 2000, by Jim Caligiuri
"...In keeping with his unassuming nature, however, he lives with wife Janet in a weathered ranch-style home deep in the Hill Country outside of Austin on a one-lane dirt and gravel road. Inside, it's surprisingly spacious. Guitars hang on the walls, a couple of dogs roam the halls, and surprise, some of Butch Hancock's photography is on display..."

Something about more suffering in Afghanistan..."
