“The main thing I wanted was to just have a good vibe about it,” Ray Wylie Hubbard says of his Grit ‘n Groove Festival, which happens this weekend at the Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels. The one-day fest will feature performances from Hubbard, Hayes Carll, Ben Kweller, the Dirty River Boys, the Wheeler Brothers, Uncle Lucius, the Trishas, Sons of Fathers and Dustin Welch.
Hubbard picked the lineup for the festival, now in its fourth year. “The guys that I got on it this time, besides respecting their musical chops and their songwriting, they’re all really good hangs,” he says.
