Former President of the United States, Lyndon B. Johnson and First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson, brought immense attention to their homeland of the Hill Country area when he was elected in 1963.
In 1975, two of country-western music's most iconic and influential superstars, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, released a song titled 'Luckenbach, Texas' about a small town in the heart of Texas Hill Country. The song sent an immense amount of visitors down south to the Texas Hill Country San Antonio area. It didn't matter that neither singer had visited the place; what mattered was the sentiment incorporated within the song. Fans of the singers responded by visiting the beauty of the Texas flatlands, massive oak trees, never-ending fields, and crystal clear springs contained in the Hill Country area. The song gave even more meaning to the town's motto, 'Everybody's somebody in Luckenbach.'
