It wasn't until he was 66 years of age that Ray Wylie Hubbard appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman. Speaking about that invitation, Hubbard said...'I didn't want to peak too soon'...

That's the kind of tongue-in-cheek attitude that has earned Hubbard the distinction of being inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.

The Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Association will hold the event Saturday, Feb. 24th  at Austin’s historic Paramount Theater.

In addition to Hubbard, other inductees this year include hit songwriter Liz Rose, the late Mickey Newbury and a young man we lost way too early in life - Buddy Holly.

Numerous big names will perform to honor the inductees including Eric Church, Jack Ingram and Hayes Carll among others.

Hubbard has been touring heavily in support of his latest album 'Tell The Devil I’m Gettin’ There As Fast As I Can'.

The TxHSA puts on the Hall of Fame ceremony to honor and celebrate Texas songwriters who have played an important role in defining and interpreting Texas’ distinctive culture.

A small number of tickets for the awards show go on sale Friday, Jan. 26. You can get them from the Paramount Theater box office.
