I don’t think anybody writes better lyrics.” Those poignant lyrics of McMurtry’s immense catalog all ring true today. In 2011, “We Can’t Make It Here” was cited among The Nation’s “Best Protest Songs Ever.” Bob Lefsetz wrote that it “has stood the test of time because of its unmitigated truth.” Don't miss TONIGHT'S show!
