One of Texas' all-time best singer-songwriters is getting ready to make an appearance in one of Tyler's most unique venues on the brick streets downtown.

Ray Wylie Hubbard, one of country music's progressive masters in the 1970s and beyond, will grace the stage at Liberty Hall in Tyler on Saturday, Oct. 4. 

Hubbard is among the mold of Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, all of whom shaped the "outlaw country" scene. He has written, sang and produced some of country's greatest music, including writing Walker's monster hit "Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother" on his "Viva Terlingua" album.

That song launched Hubbard into cult stardom, and he's been going strong practically ever since. He has worked with the likes of Walker, Jennings, Nelson, Randy Rogers Band, Shinyribs, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Pat Green and Bugs Henderson, among many others.

Hubbard will take the stage at Liberty Hall at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 online and $25 at the door. VIP box seats, which include four tickets, are $175.
