It’s safe to say that Ray Wylie Hubbard is a Texas legend, but it’s not as if anyone handed him that title. He worked for it, constantly touring across the country and writing and recording new music. He’s played music professionally for nearly 50 years now, and has been at the forefront of several movements within country music, especially the progressive country music movement of the 1970s. Each of the more than fifteen albums he has put out throughout his career have explored different facets of the country genre, all the while maintaining his gritty and bluesy playing style.
On Saturday, Ray Wylie Hubbard will headline his fourth annual Grit & Groove Festival in New Braunfels. Curated by Hubbard, the festival will feature performers such as Hayes Carll, Ben Kweller and Wheeler Brothers. On Tuesday, Ray Wylie Hubbard stopped by KUTX to play live in Studio 1a with host Jay Trachtenberg. CHECK IT OUT!
