Throwback Thursday Artist – Ray Wylie Hubbard
At 69 years of age, Ray Wylie Hubbard is one of the hardest working musicians on the Texas Music Scene. He works harder than most musicians half his age and loves every minute of it........
His latest tour took him to New York City where Ray recently played on Wednesday, July 13th. Hubbard said he loves playing the Big Apple. In his words..... “I have a really good time. Every time we’ve played up there, they’ve just been really fun, very knowledgeable crowds, so you can’t phone it in – you’ve got to earn it in New York.”
Supporting his latest album, 2015’s 'The Ruffian’s Misfortune', Hubbard is in a storytelling and performing groove, and when it comes to storytelling, he is one of the best.
Ray Wylie Hubbard is a real songwriter, a real performer, and in a day of many plastic “artists,” he’s the real deal.
Having said that....why don't we make him our Kickin' Throwback Thursday Artist and reach back for one of his great songs which expresses his pride in Texas!!
