EDITORS’ NOTES

This album's title could easily refer to outlaw country veteran Ray Wylie Hubbard's raw, gritty vocal style, which serves him well on tunes that mix Texas twang with back-porch blues and roadhouse rock 'n' roll. Hubbard has no qualms about letting you know exactly where he's coming from with tunes like "Name Droppin'" (a roll call of his musician pals like Mary Gauthier, Jon Dee Graham, etc.) and the wry Lone Star State anti-anthem "Screw You, We're from Texas." But his deeper side shows when he dips into spiritual blues plagued with doubt on "Purgatory Road" and "Preacher."
