Jerry Jeff Walker (born Ronald Clyde Crosby; March 16, 1942, Oneonta, New York) is an American country music singer and songwriter. He is best known for writing "Mr. Bojangles". Walker's maternal grandparents played for square dances in the Oneonta area, with his grandmother, Jessie Conroe, playing piano, and her husband playing fiddle. During the late 1950s, Crosby was a member of a local Oneonta teen band called The Tones.
And in the summer of 1973, Walker cut an LP, ¡Viva Terlingua!, that helped lay the foundation for the outlaw country sub-genre of country music. We had an independent record and we used it to the nth degree. Viva Terlingua!, released that November, did strike a chord with fans, especially ones in Texas. The album quickly sold 50,000 copies in the Lone Star State, but only another 20,000 in the rest of the country, which ensured its legacy as a homegrown cult classic. The wooden door featured on the album’s cover is now on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

How Jerry Jeff Walker's 'Viva Terlingua' Shaped Outlaw Country Music. By Bobbie Jean Sawyer7 months. Desperados, Armadillos and Redneck Mothers. At the dawn of the 1970s, Jerry Jeff Walker was most famous for penning "Mr. Bojangles," the oft-covered folk song about a tap dancing drifter. But as the decade progressed, Walker became indoctrinated into the Texas scene. And nowhere in the Lone Star state was more dear to Walker's heart than Luckenbach. Walker befriended Luckenbach mayor Hondo Crouch, who had just purchased the town and created a haven for hippies and cowboys alike
Album · 1993 · 11 Songs. On the 20th anniversary of his definitive 1973 live album Viva Terlingua, Jerry Jeff Walker returned to the Luckenbach Dancehall to record a sequel. Recorded over three nights between October 20 and 22, 1993, Viva Luckenbach is more even-tempered than its predecessor, but Walker’s affection for the once-abandoned Texas hamlet is undiminished. In many ways, the album is a retrospective of Walker’s life in Texas, which the native New Yorker adopted as his home in the early '70s. What I Like About Texas and Keep Texas Beautiful are basically lists of Walker’s joys, but that’s just right.
