Ray Wylie Hubbard
Hubbard was born in Hugo, Oklahoma and moved to Oak Cliff in south Dallas in 1954. He attended W. H. Adamson High School with Michael Martin Murphey of "Wildfire" fame. Hubbard graduated in 1965 and enrolled in college, at the University of North Texas, as an English major. Hubbard spent the summers in New Mexico playing music where he eventually wrote wrote "Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother", made famous by Jerry Jeff Walker's 1973 recording. Today Ray Wylie Hubbard is an elder statesman of the Texas music scene and his song writing continues to be an inspiration and influence on everyone. From New Braunfels, Texas, Hubbard hosts a Tuesday night radio show called "Roots & Branches". This program promotes new and established Americana artists. Like some other performers in his genre, he is perhaps as popular in Europe as in the US.
