Chris from Harrisonburg, VaActually Ken, La Grange was from the album "Tres Hombres." "Fandango" was unique in that the first half was a live set from recent tour stops, while the second half of the album contains six new studio cuts, including "Tush". It would be the only official ZZ release with live material until the last four cuts of "XXX" released in 1999. ZZ does reference Texas in a number of their early songs. "Heard It on the X", also from Fandango, refers to a radio station in Texas that Billy, Dusty, and Frank listened to while growing up.

Screamin' Armadillo from Fort Worth, Tx"Tush" is old Texas slang for something "deluxe", (or as the boyzz from ZZ Top would say, "Deee-Luxe") whether it be cars, clothes, food or chicks. It has the double meaning/connotation of booty.
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
