Fortunately for us, the new album "The Ruffian's Misfortune" shows the Texas troubadour as his best, growling out his signature evocative, gritty, and often poignant lyrics over roots and blues sounds provided in part by his guitarist son Lucas Hubbard. No auto-tune or heavy effects here - just raw, pure, unbridled music captured as it happened in the studio.

Elder Statesman of Texas music, Ray Wylie Hubbard, joins Matt Meinke via telephone to chat about music, life, upcoming projects and more. (Originally aired Sept. 15th, 2011)
