Susan Gibson on tour again

Susan Gibson

Susan Gibson is back on the road.

The "Wide Open Spaces" author returned home to Amarillo briefly for a house concert before heading up to Wyoming and Montana.

Gibson currently calls Wimberly home but she passes through the Panhandle on a regular basis to see family and friends.

She said the song, recorded by The Dixie Chicks, helped her make a mark.

She says kids will come up to her who weren't born before the song was released in 1998 and sing her the chorus.
