11 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

A masterful storyteller and Texas legend, Ray Wylie Hubbard has spent the past 40 years penning gritty, witty songs that ooze outlaw attitude. Tell the Devil is his existential opus. Beginning with Genesis and ending with a prayer, it follows an old rebel at the end of the road who tries, one last time, to charm God. The result is pure, playful poetry. He has company for the more serious songs: Lucinda Williams and Eric Church join in on the title track, and Patty Griffin appears for a duet about death that’s sure to put a lump in your throat.
