Most recently, in May of 2001, Jack, alongside fellow singer/songwriters Miranda Lambert and Jon Randall, released The Marfa Tapes.

✅ RAY WYLIE HUBBARD (guest bio & links)

Singer/songwriter Ray Wylie Hubbard grew up in Oak Cliff in southwest Dallas, Texas, and attended W. H. Adamson High School with Michael Martin Murphey and B.W. Stephenson.

In the 1970s, Hubbard wrote “Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother,” first made famous by Jerry Jeff Walker’s 1973 recording. In 1976, he signed with Warner Bros. Records. The result was “a botched sound” that Hubbard disapproved of vehemently, but the album was released despite his attempts to block it.

Throughout the 80’s and ’90s, Hubbard recorded albums for various other labels but struggled with the sales of his mix of country, folk, and blues. Eventually, a steady following began to re-discover Hubbard’s music, and he has been recording steadily since. His guitar technique uses a strumming by the left (fretting) hand that is very old but not frequently seen in double time without changing the right-hand beat.

Since 2000, Hubbard has released ten records, including ‘Snake Farm’ in 2006. Most recently, in 2020, Hubbard signed his first major-label release since 1978 on Big Machine Records. ‘Co-Staring’ is a set of collaborations featuring Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, Don Was, and Black Crowe’s frontman Chris Robinson.
