Rogue. Poet. Rocker. Texas Texture. Ray Wylie Hubbard made such a mark with Co-Starring, his first major label outing with an all-star lineup of his vast network of friends, the always shape-shifting songwriter decided once was not enough. So the louche beacon of cool went even wider and deeper into his coterie of confidantes, emerging with Co-Starring Too. The second set features a surprisingly eclectic and Texas-centric collection - Willie Nelson, The Bluebonnets, Band of Heathens, The Last Bandoleros and Steve Earle, plus a Red Dirt collab with Wade Bowen, Randy Rogers and Cross Canadian Ragweed's Cody Canada. The next wave of Lone Star songwriting icons Hayes Carll, James McMurtry, Dalton Domino appear next to tracks from creative torque Wynonna, Jaimee Harris, Charlie Sexton and Gurf Morlix. The far-reaching rock & roll/country music/musicians/Texas Music Hall of Fame team of Ringo Starr, Lucas Hubbard, Steve Lukather (Toto), Eliza Gilkyson and Ann Wilson (Heart) assemble alongside metal slayers Lzzy Hale and John 5 with an amplified Blues-fusion from Kevin Russell and the Shiny Soul Sisters. Always eviscerating songwriting, Co-Starring Too is a post-outlaw country take on what it means to be a man holding his own, a rake unafraid of a good time and a romantic wildly committed to the ideals of the heart. Unabashed and unafraid to work from the fringes, bringing the rest of us along for the ride, there is only one Ray Wylie Hubbard.
