Curtis Potter is one of those old Texas dudes who made one old-school honkytonk country album after another, mostly while chilling back home and safely off the radar. Although he landed a major label deal in the early '70s, his only two chart entries came nearly a decade later, and after those Back Forty flings, he stuck to the hometown scene, working frequently with other rootsy Lone Star artists. Here's a quick look at his work...
