    First, just listen: http://search.playlist.com/tracks/to%20west%20texas

    I'm on my way to West Texas (Odessa, for a gig) in a couple weeks, and I'd love any suggestions.

    One of my best friends lives out there, but he's relatively new as well, and I'll be looking for good eats and good times while I'm out there.

    Thanks for the help folks...

    "West TX Teardrops" by the Old 97's is a great song....

    Keep driving south. You'll thank me when you end up in Cancun.

    Stock up on Dublin Dr Pepper -- any of those towns with a 44-mile radius of Dublin will have it -- Fairy, Comanche, shitburgs like that. It's nectar.

    Odessa? I just looked it up on the GPS.
    It said: Go to Hell, hang left, 3.3 miles. Destination on right.

    Lubbock is in West Texas. Lubbock was home to Buddy Holly, Joe Ely, The Flatlanders, Amanda Shires, and a host of others. Roy Orbison hails from West Texas.
    Right there is a ton of great music to load up with for the trip.

    Wasn't Jerry Reed also from Lubbock? Not that I can recommend his music or anything.

    Edit: Massive fail. I meant Mac Davis. I get second-rate countrified crooners from the 70s who occasionally acted mixed up all the time.

    Oh, no, not a job. Just a freelance gig, so I'll only be there for a couple weeks. Some good suggestions though...
