Hop to it, folks: Your Easter weekend (and beyond) is filled with great music choices. Here's our all-inclusive roundup and a preview of Amarillo singer-songwriter Ray Wilson's new CD.

 

In the spotlight

Ray Wilson 

A love song designed to appeal to gay and straight couples alike took an unexpected turn when Amarillo singer-songwriter Ray Wilson entered the studio to record it: It became a country song, of all things.

"I really wanted to write a more modern love song," Wilson said. "Love songs have kind of been for more of a traditional boy-meets-girl (story). ... I wanted something that could reach anyone — boy-meets-boy, girl-meets-girl — so I sat down to compose what would be a love song no matter where you're at or who you fall in love with."

As he began recording it at Red Sky Studio in Amarillo, he was surprised to find it worked best with country-style instrumentation. But he went with it.

"If you let it flow, I think it's more authentic, and I think it'll resonate more," he said, adding that that's certainly his goal with "Perfect Love": "We're entering such a beautiful age where we're so much more accepting of the different kinds of relationships that are out there."

Wilson will celebrate the release of his new album, Coming Through in Waves, which includes "Perfect Love," with a 10 p.m. Friday release party at Golden Light Cantina, 2906 S.W. Sixth Ave. 

Cover is $7.
