The first time I heard Jay Boy Adams, I was convinced he wasn’t a Lubbock artist. No way this guy grew up in West Texas. But the more you listen to those two albums from the ’70s–Jay Boy Adams and Fork in the Road–the more you hear that Texan twang in his airy vocals. 

Still, you’d find many who probably thought he…
