"In Live at Antone's, Nelson sings renditions of his best songs recorded live on June 24, 2005, at Antone's, a classic Austin venue. Live keeps audiences entertained with the styles that the band incorporates into its sound - anything from the traditional gospel of "Down By the Riverside" to the down-home, bluesy feel of "Troubadour." The music exudes the optimistic, laid-back nature of Nelson." - Emily Watson, The Daily Texan
“When I was very young, my Mom used to take me to the Armadillo. Yeah, THAT Armadillo. I don’t remember a whole lot, but the music in general was a lot like this. It was this funky mishmash of country, blues, rock and gospel. It was feel-good music played by people who felt good playing it, and everyone felt good hearing it. The years went by and that’s the sound Austin became known for. It’s country that doesn’t fit the Nashville plan, and it’s the tradition Austin City Limits has tried to maintain. I guess it’s “Americana” or “Roots music,” but whatever you want to call it, it definitely is Austin. The important thing is that it draws from all kinds of influences both black and white, and draws everyone together. It’s as hippie friendly as it is cowboy friendly, and the kids and grandparents will be there too."
