If the narrator Waylon Jennings voiced in Dukes of Hazzard had left Hollywood and spent the rest of his life in a dingy Texas bar reimagining the lives of his patrons, he could be Ray Wylie Hubbard. His bedraggled air is well earned, as he spent his youth in dissipation other than penning Jerry Jeff Walker's hit "Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother." Since cleaning up in his 40s, he's honed an avuncular, observational manner fueled by wry resignation and coy wit. His gritty country-blues narratives have a driving insistence echoed in the lifestyles of his nomadic literary creations, who ride the knife's edge between survival and savoring each moment. —Chris Parker
