Jim Morris is always a great artist to start any show with.  "Laid Back and Key Wasted" is the title track of his 1996 debut album.

Our second song for this week is a Jimmy Buffett classic: "I Will Play for Gumbo".  This song appeared on the 1999 Beach House on the Moon CD.

"Sloop John B." is on the excellent Cowboy Boots & Bathin' Suits album.  When asked to reflect on the meaning of the song, Jerry Jeff Walker simply said, "Every young man dreams of going to sea and having great adventures, but their stories don't always have happy endings."

This is the second chance we've had to play some Leo Dean for our listeners and we have a good feeling that you'll enjoy it.  "If Jimmy Buffett Ran the World" can be found on the I Got It Made CD from 2005.

Played previously by request, here is the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's "An American Dream"!

"The South Coast of Texas" is one of our favorite Guy Clark songs and can be found on his 2007 album of the same name.

Our second Buffett song for the week is "Bama Breeze", which is on the 2007 Take the Weather with You CD.

All reports from the recent Larry Joe Taylor Texas Music Festival were overwhelmingly positive.  To celebrate, here is a song you've heard a few times on our show: "My Kinda Day on Padre".

From the Just Give Me the Keys album comes the excellent "Life Laid Back", a great Rob Mehl song.

Two great artists, Nanci Griffith and Mac MacAnally, joined forces to bring us this excellent version of "Gulf Coast Highway".

"Cabo San Lucas" is from Toby Keith's 2008 That Don't Make Me a Bad Guy CD.

Here is a song from Jerry Diaz and Hanna's Reef that is new to the Gulf Coast Cowboy line up!  "Beach People, Beach Music" is from their latest album, Home on the Gulf Coast.

Rounding out this week is one of our most requested songs, "Where the Boat Leaves From".  Go check out the Zac Brown Band website and tell them we sent ya!

That's our show for the week!  As always, tune in Wednesday evenings at 7 for the best in Trop Rock and Gulf Coast music - only here on KBEC 1390 and the Gulf Coast Cowboy Hour!
