Cornell Hurd talks about the elements of western swing and being inducted into the Cow Town Society of Western Music’s Hall of Fame. He tells the story of his first bands in high school, how Leroy Van Dyke’s “Walk On By” got him interested in country music and how we considers himself to be a “direct linear descendent of Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen.” He also says “I saw Dan Hicks in a white sport coat with two girls singing ‘How Can I Miss You When You Won’t Go Away’ and I knew that’s what I wanted to do.” Cornell gives us a peek at what it was like trying to promote your music in the pre-internet era of 1977. And he wraps up singing the praises of the Broken Spoke, “the last of the great Texas Dance Halls.”
