KZFR Presents in Redding Ray Wylie Hubbard
This is a benefit for 90.1 KZFR Chico.

From his humble beginnings as an Oklahoma folkie in the 60s to his wild ride through the 70s progressive country movement, and onward through the honky-tonk fog of the 80s to his sobriety-empowered comeback as a songwriters songwriter in the 90s, Hubbard was already a bona fide legend by the time he really found his groove right at the turn of the century. Thats when he finally felt confident enough in his guitar playing to dive headlong into his own
inimitable take on the blues, a form hed admired but steered clear of for decades, thinking its mysteries were beyond his grasp as a basic chord strummer.

As I look back, Ive had some amazing cool things happen, but I still feel like Im moving forward, he says. I still enjoy it, and I think theres still plateaus to reach. I dont know what theyre going to be, because I havent really sat around thinking about it; when I wrote
Mother Blues for the last record, I wasnt thinking, Ill put this album out and try to get on Letterman
 he just heard the song on Sirius Radio and called up and asked for us. So who knows what will happen with this record? All I know is I feel very fortunate right now in that Im playing gigs that are really fun to do. And as long as I can keep writing and performing new songs, I think I could keep doing this for awhile. I saw some show once where Pinetop Perkins was playing at 90 years old, and Judy said, Youve got another 20 years in you!

Ray will perform as a three-piece for this show.
