This week, Ira spoke with singer-songwriter Ray Wylie Hubbard, who will be performing December 12th at The Golden Nugget Las Vegas. In this 30-minute episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Hubbard talks about how he got into songwriting (blame it on a high school assembly); why he writes what he wants to write; why he’s never really fit in anywhere; how humor helps his story telling; and what it was like to perform at the Grand Ole Opry.
