Ray Wylie Hubbard (born 13 November 1946 in Soper, Oklahoma) is an American country music singer and songwriter.
Ray Wylie grew up in Oak Cliff, Texas. He attended the same high school as Michael Martin Murphey, who had his own band at the time. He graduated high school in 1965. He later moved to Red River, New Mexico where he wrote Up Against The Wall, Redneck Mother.
In the 1970s, Hubbard wrote Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother, made famous by Jerry Jeff Walkerâ€™s rendition. Hubbard recorded for various labels but struggled with sales; his mix of country, folk and blues elements didnâ€™t find an audience. After leaving the scene and struggling with personal problems, he returned in the early 1990s with Lost Train of Thought (1992) and Loco Gringo's Lament (1994). He has since become an elder statesman of the Texas music scene. Like some other Americana artists, he is perhaps as popular in Europe as in the US; he has been invited by record companies in the Netherlands to produce albums. His most recent recordings have been produced by Texas guitarist Gurf Morlix.
