Ray Price grew up on a farm, and in the city. Perhaps this city/country mix helped form some of that classic, “Ray Price Sound”. His recordings from the mid to late fifties, such as, “Crazy Arms”, from 1956, had a honky-tonk influence, while his later hits, such as, “She’s Got to be a Saint”, offers a softer, more melodic sound. He turned to gospel music for much of the 1990’s.
Whatever the reasons, Ray Price became a mentor to countless country performers, and a welcome voice to his many fans.
