Another incredible opportunity to interview a legendary singer-songwriter for the Billy Reid Journal. Ray Wylie is known for his rowdy Texas ballads "Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother" and "Screw You We're From Texas." He released a new album, The Ruffians Misfortune, and a memoir, A Life...Well, Lived, in 2015 at age 69. This has definitely been one of my favorite interviews to date. Anyone who talks Alan Watts, Joseph Campbell and Eastern philosophy has my super focused attention.
Read the full interview about Ray's book, life on the road, spiritual awakenings and the bands he's into these days.
