T22 No broken connection to the past

Broken Spoke tee 2017-03-08 15.23.25

The Broken Spoke, a legendary dance hall founded in 1964, still features live music nightly. Owner James White had a reputation for booking local acts and “outlaw” bands that had gained notoriety by rebelling against the mainstream Nashville sound. Leading this brigade were Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson. Such Texas favorites as the Dixie Chicks and George Strait also played the Broken Spoke when they were just starting out, according to Wikipedia.

Not the best service. They mostly cater to the regulars. Not the friendliest crew I have ever been around, but you cannot deny the connection to the past. And the chicken fried steak is hard to beat.

Here is another story about the place.

  1. I don’t have anything to say about this one because I’m not familiar with it other than I love the old country music vs. Today’s standard country music.
