Ray Wylie Hubbard (Album Release)

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 7pm
Opener: Aaron Lee Tasjan 8pm
Ray Wylie Hubbard: 9:30pm

Ray Wylie Hubbard is a well-respected Texas Country singer-songwriter who is most known for his songs “Snake Farm” and “Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother” and made famous by Jerry Jeff Walker’s 1973 recording. The renowned Americana hero returns with a lean ’n’ mean follow-up to 2012’s triumphant The Grifter’s Hymnal with his new album, The Ruffian’s Misfortune. Soon to be followed by his uproarious, hair-raising autobiography, A Life…Well, Lived, The Ruffian’s Misfortune was co-produced by Hubbard and bassist George Reiff and showcases Hubbard’s bluesy slide alongside the twin guitar leads of Gabe Rhodes and Hubbard’s son, Lucas.

Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 7pm
Opener: Matt Hillyer (of Eleven Hundred Springs) 8pm
Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison: 9:30pm

Kelly Willis’ and Bruce Robison’s individual artistic achievements already sum up to impressive totals, but when they unite as an ongoing musical act, the sum of the parts is a musical quantity is far greater than the whole. Willis has reigned as a critically acclaimed roots music singer and Robison has made his mark as both a writer of smash #1 hits like “Wrapped” (George Strait), “Angry All The Time” (Tim McGraw & Faith Hill) and “Travelin’ Soldier” (Dixie Chicks) and an artist in his own right. When playing together occasionally over the years turned into a real collaboration, this couple in life, love and parenthood now unite as a band all its own. It’s more about the promise and thrills of the new than their considerable solo legacies and the laurels they have already earned.

In 1997, Roger Creager left an accounting position at a Fortune 500 company in Houston to pursue a life of music. Rather than moving to Nashville like most people would do, he took the road less traveled. Creager carried his hopes and dreams to the musical and cultural mecca of College Station, Texas. For more than a decade, Roger Creager built a reputation on his distinctive brand of hard-core, rabble-rousing Texas Country music, on his rich, full-bodied voice that can carry a tune for miles, and on his exceptional ability to work thousands of Texans into a rabid frenzy with his voice and guitar, in the great concert tradition of Jerry Jeff Walker and Robert Earl Keen. Along the way, he’s been writing some mighty fine instant classics about family heirlooms, fields of bluebonnets, and late night trips to Mexico. Four albums, hundreds of thousands of road miles, and an ever-expanding fan base later, Creager is soaring toward the top of the Texas Music Scene.

Dirty River Boys

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 8pm
Opener: TBA 9pm
Dirty River Boys: 10:30pm

Playing upwards of 200 dates a year, giving heartfelt, unrestrained performances, and winning over a loyal audience show-by-show, The Dirty River Boys have notched a number of significant milestones, opening for legend Willie Nelson several times and selling out the famed Gruene Hall. All four members of DRB have a hand in the songwriting, and all four sing as well, while members often switch off instruments during shows. This isn’t just a vehicle for a songwriting front man, with an interchangeable crew of instrumentalists bringing those ideas to life. And so, after a pair of EPs and an album, “Science of Flight,” that served as a tour calling card, the time couldn’t be better for an anthemic, hook-laden declaration of intent, served up to an audience beyond DRB’s Texas diehards. The record is both a cohesive statement and a dizzying testament to the band’s capabilities, as it shifts gears between genres with the skill of a long-haul trucker.

Jonathan Tyler (Album Release)

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 7pm
Opener: TBA 8pm
Jonathan Tyler: 9:30pm

Jonathan Tyler did the rock star thing. He played Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, Hangout Fest and the Voodoo Experience. He performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and toured alongside AC/DC, ZZ Top, Grace Potter and Kid Rock. His 2010 LP, Pardon Me, with backing band The Northern Lights reached No. 8 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart. His songs were featured in TV shows Boardwalk Empire and Friday Night Lights. It was everything he thought he’d wanted. It was everything he’d signed up for. But it wasn’t really him. These days, Tyler really does come off as a changed man – in person and on record alike. He’s more introspective, more focused. Holy Smokes, his forthcoming third proper LP, finds Tyler shed of major-label constraints, bearing his soul as songwriter who’s seen the top of the mountain and now seeks a different kind of climb, one filled less with flash and more with substance.

SATURDAY NIGHT: Doors: 8pm

Hayes Carll: 10:30pm

Hayes Carll hasn’t been resting on his laurels since topping critic’s polls and winning awards for his 2008 album, Trouble in Mind. Instead, he’s been on the road nearly nonstop with his band, “The Poor Choices”, blasting through honky tonks and rock clubs across the U.S. and beyond. Home is Austin, Texas, where the singer-songwriter settled with his family. Raised a sixth-generation Texan in a Houston suburb, Carll early on found inspiration in Kerouac and Dylan, hit the road after college. His first two indie albums, Flowers and Liquor (2002) and Little Rock (2004), garnered an enthusiastic and ever-expanding audience, as did his engaging live shows, sparked by Carll’s humorous storytelling and between-song patter. Along the way he has written with some of his songwriting role models, including Guy Clark and Ray Wylie Hubbard, with whom he collaborated on “Drunken Poet’s Dream,” one of the attention-getting tracks on Trouble in Mind. Of their kinship, Hubbard has said, “I always like writing with Hayes, because he’s fearless.”

Bob Schneider

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 8pm
Opener: TBA 9pm
Bob Schneider: 10:30pm

Bob Schneider’s fellow Texans as well as his rabid U.S. fanbase will testify to his abilities, as he has become the most awarded singer songwriter in Austin’s history, winning over thirty Austin Music Awards. His scruffy good looks and strong, husky voice provide a good complement to his semi-confessional songwriting. The real beauty of Schneider’s artistic career is about the freedom to constantly write, record and stockpile songs. While he’s already released hundreds of songs with his bands, Schneider estimates there were at least a thousand songs that didn’t fit his band’s concepts.
