It's not hard for Gordie Johnson to find inspiration in a place where Willie Nelson drives by in his golf cart.


The Canadian-born frontman for reggae-rockers Big Sugar moved to Texas a decade ago. There he found a culture that lined up perfectly with his approach to music and life.And it doesn't hurt running into Nelson and members of ZZ Top at an Austin-area recording studio.
