Ray Wylie Hubbard Staff Pick

When: Fri., Dec. 23, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: 8pm
Oklahoma-born singer-songwriter Ray Wylie Hubbard is a ruffian, a roustabout, a scoundrel with a bit of a flair for earthy poetry and inappropriate uncle humor, a blues picker and a folk slinger turned Texas/Red Dirt country standard bearer. While he may not be as touted as some of the folks he came up with, amid the Outlaw Country boom of the 1970s, Hubbard’s hybrid music occupies a special place in the Texas music milieu. “Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother,” Hubbard’s most beloved song, which gained popularity after its inclusion on Jerry Jeff Walker’s standout 1973 release ¡Viva Terlingua!, perfectly exemplifies the hallmarks of his best work: It’s a little bit country and a little bit rock, it’s funny and subversive, and it’s ideal for beer hall singalongs.
