rip ray


Goodbye to Ray Price, one of the finest country singers that ever was. I had the good fortune to see him sing at one of Willie Neslon's annual 4th of July Picnics about 15 years ago and he was a total country gentleman, with flawless Stetson, buttoned up Western suit and formal mannerisms. Many will speak of his hits Crazy Arms, Release Me, and I'll Be There If You Ever Want Me, the greatness of which cannot be denied, but I'm kind of partial to THIS ONE, in which he is too loaded to go home (again).
