Ray Wylie Hubbard Sings ‘Screw You, We’re From Texas’ for The Late Show With David Letterman

David Letterman is a pretty big fan of Ray Wylie Hubbard. Last fall, his producers contacted Ray to appear on the Late Show. As a result, RWH came on the show and performed ‘Mother Blues’ from his newest CD ‘The Grifter’s Hymnal’. But Letterman had a special request that Hubbard stick around to perform an older song that isn’t necessarily ideal for his CBS network television audience.

‘Screw You, We’re From Texas’ has been a favorite for years among Hubbard fans in the Lone Star State. But word of this edgy, tongue-in-cheek song hasn’t exactly gained a huge following outside Texas. So, it’s all the more surprising (and impressive) that a Letterman, who has called New York City home for more than three decades, personally requested that Hubbard play ‘Screw You’ for his audience, and a special web-only performance.

Ray sets the song up nicely, saying, “I’d like to say that the problem with irony is, not everybody gets it.”. Watch the performance here.

In other RWH news, Hubbard is coming to Abilene to perform at the 4th annual Outlaws & Legends Music Fest March 28-30, 2014. Tickets are on sale now.
