We all know "Amarillo By Morning". We all know "Amarillo Sky." Most of us are familiar with "Is This The Way To Amarillo." But guess what? They're not the only songs that namedrop the Yellow City.

Can you think of any more off the top of your head?

Don't worry, here's a little nudge in the right direction.

Marty Robbins - "Running Gun"

Marty Robbins was the king of ballads about gunfighters, which is exactly what this song is about. In this gunfighter ballad, the main character runs into a bit of trouble when rides into Amarillo as the sun is going down.

Bob Dylan - "Brownsville Girl"

It's a shame that Bob Dylan didn't make it to Amarillo last year. A piece of me wonders if he would have played this one. The answer is more than likely no, but we can dream. In this one Amarillo gets named dropped along with the living dead and a lot of other interesting imagery.

Hank Snow - I've Been Everywhere

We get tossed in with a lot, and I mean a lot, of other places in this absolute classic. You may not be familiar with this version of it though. The version you're probably more familiar with would be the one recorded by none other than Johnny Cash.

Rob Zombie - Two Lane Blacktop

Yes, even the Master of the Macabre himself has given Amarillo a mention. The song itself is pretty short on actual lyrics, which I guess makes us all kind of lucky. In the song the question is asked "Where ya goin'?" The answer is, "Amarillo."

Billy Joe Shaver - Leaving Amarillo

Oof. This one stings a little bit if the Good Lord forgot to bless you with a sense of humor. If you hang around long enough to make it to the end of the song, you hear the dig he takes at Nashville and the not so nice mention that Lubbock gets. At least we aren't as bad as Lubbock according to Billy Joe.

While we don't get a name drop in the song itself, the title of the song is still something worth bragging about. It's also interesting because the song was recorded here, which is how we got the pleasure of being the title of the song.

This Huge Cabin In Palo Duro Canyon Is Top-Notch Glamping

This cabin is (to us) the definition of "glamorous camping".

This three bedroom rental is tucked away in the Palo Duro Canyon. It's a cabin with serious room, meaning it can fit up to eight guests--a girls trip, family vacation, or any bigger group.

The cabin is available for booking through glampinghub.com and the description along with the provided photos is enough to catch the eye of anyone ready to get out of town and away from it all.....without having to go very far.

It's a beautiful place with woodwork throughout, full amenities, and all the mandatory electornics (and WiFi!). If a group of people were to split the cost of their stay between each other, it is without a doubt one of the most budget-friendly options for vacations.

The four day minimum stay required to make a booking is the only drawback to this diamond in the rough of a rental property--but it's nothing a little planning ahead and vacation time can't remedy.
