Texas troubador Ray Wylie Hubbard, who grew up in Oak Cliff, performs at the Kessler Theater tonight.

The singer/songwriter recently appeared on Ray Benson’s TV show, “The Texas Music Scene,” in a segment where he drives around our neighborhood and tells a story about Ringo Starr.

During the segment, he phones Starr to tell him he’s recorded his song “Coochy Coochy” on the album “Grifter’s Hymnal.”

    The drive around on Texas Music Scene is usually done in Austin where the show is produced. I have friends that have done the show and the drive around and never left the Austin area. If Benson and Ray came to Oak Cliff to shoot a segment it is truly an honor.

    Oak Cliff has produced some top-rate musicians. Ray Wylie has done Oak Cliff proud.
