This show was originally released on 5/4/12. He's had an insane decade since this conversation. Below are my original notes form the show. 

my guest for episode 67 is my dear friend, david' garza! david' and i played our first show together in 1991 at fitzgerald's in houston and have been friends ever since. david' was a tough guy to nail down for this. he is not one that's comfortable in these situations without making music, so i was so ecstatic that after months of asking, he finally agreed to come and talk to me on the record. david' is my favorite musician. when he picks up an instrument, wether it's my ukelele at a party and playing a hawaiian version of "the stroke" by billy squier or sitting at a piano in a random restaurant and playing for hours, i love to hear him make music. david' is an extremely versatile and prolific musician. if you don't own any of his music or have never seen him play live, i urge you to go to www.davidgarza.com immediately and buy some music and find out when he's playing near you!  i really hope you enjoy our conversation. i did!

From The Vault - Episode 820: Ray Wylie Hubbard (7/12/19)

• November 6th, 2022

Hello and welcome to How Did I Get Here? From The Vault! Today we go back to episode 820 with Ray Wylie Hubbard recorded at his home in Wimberley, TX. This show was originally released on 7/12/19. Below are my original notes form the show. 

Hello friends! Legendary singer/songwriter, Americana hero, author, Ray Wylie Hubbard is my guest for episode 820! Ray's discography and career speak for themselves. His adventurous life has been documented on tons of albums and even an autobiography, A Life... Well, Lived. Though his career started in honky-tonks in the 70's and he had a hit when Jerry Jeff Walker covered his irreverent barroom classic, "Up Against The Wall Redneck Mother" in 1973, by the mid 80's his partying ways had left him lost and at the end of his rope. Then he sobered up, took control over his life and career. He started running his label and organization with his wife and partner, Judy and his career has flourished. We have an amazing conversation about his life and career including crazy and amazing things like, being bachelor #2 on "The Dating Game", having Ringo Starr play on his upcoming album, his songwriting process, social media, collaborations with The Bright Light Social Hour, The Bluebonnets, Jesse Dayton and others and much more! I had an amazing time getting to know Ray. I know you will too. To find Ray's music, tour schedule or book, go to raywylie.com. Let's get down!
