Ray Wylie Hubbard at the Odeon
Wednesday, August 28, 2013 • Posted August 31, 2013

Texas cosmic/outlaw music legend Ray Wylie Hubbard will entertain at the Odeon Theater in Mason, Texas Saturday, September 7 at 7:00 PM.

Hubbard first found success after writing “Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mothers,” which became a beer-joint anthem some 40 years ago. Hubbard and the Outlaw Movement would eventually shake things up in the Country Music establishment. He became one of the key figures moving from folk music gatherings to honky-tonks bringing hippies and rednecks together with that famous beer-joint anthem.

He has remained highly in-demand as a singer, songwriter, producer and has even penned a screenplay for a movie starring Kris Kristofferson, Dwight Yoakum and Lizzy Caplan. From 1992 with the rockabilly infused Lost Train of Thought and moving through the grittier series of albums up to Grifters Hymnal, through his sobriety and spiritual awakening, he has created a legacy that could have been lost in the fog of self-destruction. Instead, today he is considered one of the most important elder statesmen of real Country Music, that today is known as ‘Americana.’

Ray’s solo performance has been described as a church service held at the funkiest roadhouse bar this side of the Mississippi. Ray Wylie fans won’t want to miss this performance at a great music venue. Doors open for the performance at 6:30. Make reservations on line at and pay securely using PAYPAL. You may also call Dennis or K Evans at 325 347 6781 for reservations and information.

Reservations are $20 per person and must be paid for in advance to confirm. Surely to be a sell-out...make your reservations now.
