LocationEdit

No indication of where in the world this is. Spelling of article title doesn't match spelling in article text. Is this a place there is already another article about? If so, merge. -- Jmabel 21:43, Jun 8, 2004 (UTC)

Citations Needed and needed and needed and neededEdit

Why are such citations needed over and over as in the "visiting" section? "There is a wide variety of Luckenbach-related shirts, bumper stickers and other novelties" Why is a citation needed for a fact? "There is a no swimming sign which is usually ignored" Citation needed? Why? All of these things should be OBVIOUS to anyone who's ever been there. Why does a book have to be written and cited to confirm the obvious? I think some of you Wikipedia snobs get a little over zealous on the citations needed. It's a fact that they sell T-Shirts, bumper stickers, and souvenirs. It's a fact that the sign is basically ignored, as people swim in the creek all the time. I can state this as fact because I lived there from '94-'98. You'll probably find that it isn't eorth the THREE copies of the book you would sell to write a book stating these common-sense items just so the Wiki-snobs can have an ISBN number to paste after each sentence. If you think a citation is needed, get off your ass and out from behind the keyboard for a change and simply go there and see. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.48.206.206 (talk) 21:09, 10 February 2013 (UTC)


CopyvioEdit

The original submission is a direct copy past of the first paragraph from the history section of www.luckenbachtexas.com The site carries no copyright notice and they'd probably appreciate the noteriety, but it should most likely be reworked on principle. Everything I wrote is based solely on testimony from many hung-over peers and classmates while attending college (especially the road trips and arrests part.)

Confusing...Edit

One paragraph claims that Waylon Jennings had never been to Luchenbach, TX and the next paragraph claims that he has. Perhaps he performed there later after making the comment?

In his 2000 book Are You Ready for the Country?, author Peter Doggett recalls that Jennings later told audiences that "he hated the song and (had) admitted 'The guys that wrote the thing have never been to Luckenbach. Neither have I.'"

Notable concert appearances in the town include Waylon Jennings...

populationEdit

The info box states that the population is 3. This is consistent with the figure given for whent he town was advertised for sale, but, considering what the rest of the article says, it seems probable that the town has grown since then (http://everything2.com/title/Luckenbach%252C+Texas: 25 people). On the l=other hand, maybe all the people wroking in the town live else-where, since this (http://www.texasescapes.com/FEATURES/Home_town/Luckenbach/Luckenbach.htm) site says there were only 2 residents in 2010.

OR / NPOV issues with Country Music section.Edit

Country Music section contains paragraphs of editorializing with no citations.

Phrases like "Texas styled music that Nashville would not even admit was country Music" and "Never has there been the most purest form of Texas Honky Tonk down home music" (sic) would seem to run afoul of NPOV. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.66.64.244 (talk) 12:26, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
