Ray Wylie Hubbard – Texas Troubadour
My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing Ray Wylie Hubbard perform at the Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts in Arlington Texas. It was an amazingly intimate show. Ray joked around a bit with the audience as he spoke about his life. For those that don’t know about the Great Ray Wylie Hubbard. I have to say that as a Texas Songwriter he is among the company of our greatest troubadours, Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt, and Waylon Jennings. He may be a little more on the blues and rock side of the spectrum but the twang and chime of his country and folk influences shine brightly. He is the kind of songwriter that mentions William Blake, Howling Wolf, and St John the Revelator all in one set. He finds the sacred in the least of us and the abyss in the those of us that are held in the highest esteem. All while pelting stones at his own human existence. Thanks to you Ray Wylie Hubbard for all the great songs and one hell of a show.
