The Home of Jimmie Rodgers in Kerrville

Headed out to Kerrville Folk Festival tonight- me and my band’s set isn’t until June 8 but I go out and listen every year I can. This morning I drove by Jimmie Rodgers’s Kerrville house- he called it “Blue Yodeler’s Paradise” when he lived here in 1929-1932. When I first started playing guitar, my grandfather advised me to play Jimmie’s “T for Texas, T for Tennessee” anytime I needed a surefire crowd-pleaser.
