When it comes to down ’n’ dirty roots ’n’ roll, nobody in the wide world of Americana music today does it better than Ray Wylie Hubbard. From his humble beginnings as an Oklahoma folkie in the ’60s to his wild ride through the ’70s progressive country movement, and onward through the honky-tonk fog of the ’80s to his sobriety-empowered comeback as a songwriter’s songwriter in the ’90s, Hubbard was already a bona fide legend by the time he really found his groove right at the turn of the 21st century. Hubbard is perhaps best known as the writer of songs separated by three decades: “Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother,” made famous by fellow Texan Jerry Jeff Walker, and “Snake Farm,” which never fails to get live audiences dancing.
Ray Wylie Hubbard’s latest album is the ‘Ruffians Misfortune’ which was released last year. Check out Ray performing “Stone Blind Horses” from that album.
We cannot wait to see Ray Wylie Hubbard and special guest Elizabeth Cook perform at this year’s WDVX-Travaganza! This will truly be a night to remember and it would not be possible without the support of our presenting sponsor LHP Capital!
