In an act of rebellion against the manufactured artists coughed up by Music Row, a few Country artists in Texas began the Outlaw Country movement in the Lone Star State. One of the key figures in this movement was and still is Ray Wylie Hubbard. With lyrics and a sound that was nothing like the processed music of Nashville, Ray Wylie Hubbard was not a platinum-selling mainstream artist, and he never wanted to be. With disciples like Jason Boland & the Stragglers, Pat Green, and Robert Earl Keen carrying the mantle, Ray Wylie Hubbard’s influence trumps album sales.
“Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother” was a darkly themed song about North Texas life and the ultimate Ray Wylie Hubbard song. With the decidedly non-mainstream sound, Ray Wylie Hubbard found it hard to find labels that would support albums like Ray Wylie Hubbard & the Cowboys Twinkies and the acclaimed Off The Wall. Ray Wylie Hubbard would often thrill audiences with a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Communications Breakdown”, setting the stage for Cowpunk bands in the future such as Hank Williams III.
Disillusioned by the music industry, Ray Wylie Hubbard vanished from the scene until the 1990s, when he returned with the gangbusters Lost Train of Thought. Strong songs like “When She Sings Amazing Grace” and “Sweet Lips Goodbye” quickly became fan favorites. Loco Gringo’s Lament and Dangerous Spirits were two more killer albums that were both fresh and old-school. “Dust of the Chase” and “Little Angel Comes a Walkin’” were two of the many powerful tracks released by Ray Wylie Hubbard.
Ray Wylie Hubbard continues to rock the Country Music world with albums like Growl and Eternal Lowdown. The latest album from Ray Wylie Hubbard is Snake Farm, released in 2007. With a resurgence in Texas Music and one of the best music scenes in America, Ray Wylie Hubbard is more popular than ever.
