    Q&A: Ray Wylie Hubbard talks 'dead thumb' guitar playing, working with Willie Nelson, and more
    Long before the release of his newest album, "The Ruffian's Misfortune," Texas-based songwriter and guitar-slayer Ray Wylie Hubbard joined the pantheon of country-blues rock gods he so often enshrines in his songs. "Misfortune" is a hearty stew of gritty, greasy blues licks grounded in Hubbard's gothic-inflected folk songwriting. The idea of bad luck—or bad choices, depending on how you look at it—and redemption runs through the whole album, or, as Hubbard put it in an interview, "If there's a theme to the album it's that I hope God grades on a curve." He conjures a world inhabited by down-on-their-luck cowboys, drunks, bar singers, punks, strippers, gangsters, car thieves, gamblers, hookers, and cops. Hubbard himself is the antithesis of the cookie-cutter modern country or "folk" star—a scruffy lightnin-struck lowdown cat in purple-tinted round frames and a scarf, playing the kind of music that fans of Bob Dylan and fans of Weedeater could equally enjoy. I talked with Hubbard about his new record, his songwriting and influences, and his connection to honky-tonk legend Gary Stewart.
