Butch Hancock is a country/folk music recording artist and song writer. He was born July 12, 1945 in Lubbock, Texas. Hancock is a member of The Flatlanders along with Joe Ely and Jimmie Dale Gilmore. Interviews with Butch Hancock, Joe Ely and Jimmie Dale Gilmore along with many others of the Lubbock Mafia appear in the film: "Lubbock Lights", [http://www.lubbock-lights.com] which was released in 2005.In addition to the more traditional sounds Butch Hancock has infused many different styles in this earlier recordings with artists Alex Coke, Austin Klezmorim's Bill Averbach, Spyder Johnson, John Hagan, the Squeezetone's Ponty Bone, and pianist Marcia Ball. To say that Butch Hancock is a proficient songwriter would be an understatement. His songs have been sung by other artists, including [http://www.artistdirect.net/nad/music/artist/bio/0,,440662,00.htm Emmylou Harris] .

I just want to see some smilin' faceson my friends." His lyric style has often been compared to that of [http://music.barnesandnoble.com/War-and-Peace/Butch-Hancock/e/827640008827 Bob Dylan's] but truly he is a force with a uniqueness all his own.
