Routes & Branches 6/2/12

It was a pleasure to have Ray Wylie Hubbard on my show this past weekend and a joy to see him perform with his son Lucas Saturday evening at the WOW Hall in Eugene. Hubbard says that it is the folks that listen to Americana music are the ones who define it. Whether it is folk, rock, country, bluegrass, singer/songwriter, or guitar player oriented, Americana is defined by the integrity and quality of the music and the musicians who perform it. We also talked about Hubbard's new CD called "Grifter's Hymnal" which seems to be a more personal album than others with songs like "Coricidin Bottle" and "Mother Blues" which relate to Hubbard's own history. My new favorite quote is the last line of "Mother Blues" which says " The days that I keep my gratitudes higher than my expectations, I have really good days." Words to live by.
