Not well known outside Texas, but a giant in his own way. You've heard his songs covered by Willie Nelson (I'd Have to be Crazy), Lyle Lovett (Texas Trilogy), etc. I enjoyed many evenings of live entertainment by him back in the 1970s.

Dang! I hadn't heard this. His sense of humor will be missed almost as much as his music. I saw him a few times at the Kerrville Folk Festival. One of my favorite memories is of him on stage performing "I'd Have to Be Crazy" and intermingling a few comments into it such as "Thank you, Willie. Thank you, Jesus. First things first."

Sad news indeed.

Yep, great sense of humor and stage presence.
