Video of the Week: “Pickin’ Up Beer Cans On The Highway,” Homer Henderson

Texas is known for its great songwriters, and its great songs … one of the absolute greatest is “Pickin’ Up Beer Cans On The Highway,” by Homer Henderson, formerly of Dallas and now (apparently) of Austin.  You may have heard the Old 97’s cover of the song but nothing can beat the original – performed here by Homer and the Dalworthington Garden Boys.

We saw Homer play a few years ago, opening a show in Houston for Ian McLagan and the Bump Band.  At the time he was (almost) a one-man band … sitting behind a bass drum and strummin’ his guitar.  Here’s a video of that setup:
