Let me just say this right up front: I love Texas singer/songwriters. Yes, I do.
To an old music maven like me, it doesn't get any better than Willis Alan Ramsey, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Guy Clark, Jerry Jeff Walker, Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keene and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
Hubbard was the featured performer recently at the Kenneth Threadgill Series Concert in Greenville. He'll be back in northeast Texas on Saturday, Nov. 7, at Music City Texas in Linden.
Hubbard wrote "Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother," made famous by Jerry Jeff Walker in 1973.
His 2006 CD, "Snake Farm," is vintage Hubbard. From the title cut through "Heartaches and Grease," "Old Guitar," and "Wild Gods of Mexico," his strong point of view and well crafted lyrics cut right to heart of the matter. And, they make you think twice because of a lot of truth is hidden down in there.
Watch the News-Telegram for an interview with the "Red Neck Mother."
If you haven't made the trip to Linden, now's the perfect time to hear good Texas music as it was meant to be ... performed in a small, almost acoustically-perfect venue that has been lovingly restored specifically for your listening pleasure. Kudos to Richard Bowden and his Music City Team for making Saturday nights so special!
Doors open at 6 p.m. Show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20.
