Live from Deep in the Heart of Texas is the fourth album by the country rock band Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen. It was recorded live at the Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin, Texas, and features cover art of armadillos by Jim Franklin. Unlike many live albums, it is mostly new material. Only two songs from previous albums are featured. More songs recorded at the Armadillo World Headquarters during these concerts were released on subsequent CDs, such as Sleazy Roadside Stories, but the original live album is considered by many fans to be the group's best album.
