Eat Steak

As Curt said in his latest blog post, we all need to do our part to make this environment work. Climate change and other environmental issues have a real effect on our industry. It’s up to us to be the best stewards we can be of the land and livestock under our care in the ranching way of life. So in the spirit of Curt’s latest blog post, I propose we all do like Reverend Horton Heat says and “Eat Steak. Let’s do our best to contribute some positive energy towards the balance of things.

The Front Porch Song

This song is my all time favorite.  It fits perfectly with the theme of the week.  This song was written quite a few years ago and shows the lifestyle of Robert Earl Keen and many baby boomers in Texas and other agricultural states.  He is a big part of the Austin music scene.  Austin, Texas represents a big part of the foodie movement, but the start of this music scene had the roots in ranching as told in this song.  Every time I really listen to this song, not just hear it, it really makes me feel good and appreciate the great song writing ability of Robert Earl Keen and Lyle Lovett.

 I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
