Noah W. Bailey “The stereotype that’s always irked me is that all Texans love football—because I hate football. Concussions, toxic masculinity, taking a knee, punting—I have my reasons. But then again, I love Friday Night Lights, Terry Allen’s “The Great Joe Bob (A Regional Tragedy),” and Frito pie from a bag on a brisk autumn night—so I guess football’s good for something.” Noah currently lives in his hometown of Dallas. Read his story about the legendary musicians who have performed at Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas, on page 102. Brantley Hargrove “Everything is bigger in Texas—mostly true. In how many states can you set out from one side of the border to the other, drive all day, and arrive in a whole other kind of country? Depending on how I…

travel tips for the soul

IT’S ROMANTIC, THE NOTION OF LANDING in a new place with no agenda. But you run the risk of wasting a lot of time once you’re there trying to figure out “the plan.” Forget that. Arm yourself with an itinerary. Wherever you wander, you should designate at least one concert or national park or museum or irresistible tourist trap as your springboard to finding more. Do the same with those existential worries of yours. If you take stock of one or two things you wish you could figure out about your own life before departure, and then forget them, the subconscious door will be open to what I like to call a vacation epiphany. Anyone who’s had one knows that the vacation epiphany can be powerful enough to propel you…

Years of Viewing I’m sort of stuck here in the sticks just north of Groveton, Texas, with no TV [reception], and simply wanted to let you know your August/September 2013 issue touting “TV’s Top Lawmen” has proved to be a valuable resource for me. In short, I’m amassing quite the western DVD collection, and per Cowboys & Indians magazine’s recommendations, I’ve added the complete Walker, Texas Ranger, Justified, Longmire, and Vegas series and loved them all! An aside: We’re talking years of viewing on these, since I only have time to watch at night! I just received Season 1 of McCloud and am looking forward to revisiting that, since I watched the show as a kid. —Dave Dial, Groveton, Texas From editorial director Hunter Hauk: Dave! You have no idea what it means to us…

TEXAS JACK Frustrated by the price of quality cowboy boots, Texan Paul Hedrick decided to cut out the middleman. In 2015, he founded a line of his own to sell direct to consumers, introducing handmade boots with quality leathers, understated style, and affordable price points. Business has been booming ever since. The Tecovas brand has been so successful, in fact, that it’s now branching out into belts, travel bags, and other small leather goods. Our favorite addition is the bootjack. Handcrafted from solid beechwood, it’s coated with urethane for water resistance and lined with calfskin leather padding to avoid scratches on your boots ($95). tecovas.com BARREL BEAUTIES Jewelry artist Kim Klass has introduced a new inspirational design to her cowgirl collection with hidden meaning for barrel racers. “The pattern can be interpreted in…
