Ray Wylie Hubbard Sings ‘Snake Farm’ at Grand Ole Opry Debut
Last night (Wednesday, July 17th) a Texas legend made his long overdue Grand Ole Opry debut. Yes, last night Ray Wylie Hubbard sang "Snake Farm" inside the Opry Circle.
Pam Tillis, who has been collaborating with Ray after the two met in the Nashville airport, was able to help facilitate the invitation, giving RWH the opportunity to perform on the iconic stage.
“I want to get this next guest intro right because it’s so important to me," Tillis said during his introduction. "This gentleman I’m about to introduce you to has fans as diverse as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Patty Griffin, Ringo Starr, Steve Earle, Lee Ann Womack … so many people know about this man and look up to him as the very epitome of a true artist, a true writer. He has influenced a generation of Texas musicians and songwriters. 55 years making music. Made his debut on David Letterman, and I said, ‘You know, Ray Wylie Hubbard, it is time that you played the Grand Ole Opry.”
He sang more than "Snake Farm” of course, he also gave great performances of “Loose” and “The Messenger.” Big shout out to YouTuber Music City Maven for this one.
